The East Buchanan Bulldogs scored the first two touchdowns of the night against the Princeton Tigers en-route to a 48-30 win in the Class 1 State Quarterfinals.

The final score seems distant, but Princeton was right there in the first half.

After giving up those two touchdowns, the Tigers forced a couple of turnovers and used an impressice Andrew Smith touchdown run to tie the game up at 14-14 in the second quarter.

From there, the Bulldoys used their high-octane, no-huddle attack to wear out the Tigers, scoring consecutive touchdowns to take a 26-14 halftime lead.

The Bulldogs will advance into the Class 1 State Semifinal round and will play the winner of Monroe City/Westran next Saturday afternoon.

The late spring heat continues into Monday with lots of sunshine and highs in the middle 90s. Feels like temperatures will be around 100 degrees once again. A Heat Advisory remains is in effect until 8pm Monday for the entire KQ2 viewing area. Best advice is to drink plenty of fluids, stay in air-conditioned rooms, and stay out of the sun. Big changes move in for the new workweek as relief from the dry conditions & summer heat is on the way beginning into Tuesday.
