Were they really the IAC contenders they were thought to be? Despite the adversity that faced the Bulldogs, no anxiety hit the Bullis locker room.

“We picked up practice. After two losses, we knew we needed to get it together,” Bullis guard Vado Morse said.

On Friday night, Bullis faced the visiting Episcopal Maroon. This was a game that Bullis had to have, and no one knew that better than Bulldogs senior guard Vado Morse. With his team in need of a win, Morse stepped up, and put on a show in front of a loud home crowd. With 30 points from Morse, Bullis rebounded from its slow start, and leave with a convincing 75-67 victory.

Episcopal Maroon vs. Landon BearsBETHESDA – The visiting Episcopal Maroon fell to the home team Landon Bears in a heartbreaking last-second loss in double overtime Saturday at William H. Triplett Field, 27-26.

Even though Episcopal trailed for most of the afternoon, junior kicker Paul Pivirotto’s successful 20-yard field goal tied the game with just over a minute left to play.

Episcopal overcame a 14-point first half deficit and kept the Bears from sailing to an easy victory on homecoming day. Landon alumni were on hand to watch their team come out swinging from the very first whistle. The Bears dominated the time of possession in the first half and capped off their first possession with a nine-yard touchdown by wide receiver Jelani Machen.
