On Thursday, the Hazard Bulldog football team hosted their final scrimmage of the preseason. The Bulldogs took on the Whitley County Colonels.

Both teams got off to a slow start, but were able to pick up the pace later in the game. Hazard got on the board first, but as time neared the break, Whitley County also found the end zone.

The Bulldogs would keep the pressure on in the second half, and quietly built a lead. Hazard looked to go up big late in the game, but had an interception for a touchdown called back.

The Colonels would eventually tie the game late, and pulled ahead for the win on a game ending field goal. The Bulldogs will open their season this week with a road game at Pineville.
