OAKESDALE, Wash. - Dayton coach Dean Bickelhaupt was a little confused after his Bulldogs fell to Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia, 37-6, here Friday night.
"We didn't come out and play with good-intensity football like we've been doing," Bickelhaupt said. "I don't know if it was our big Homecoming and getting fired up for Waitsburg-Prescott (last week), but we didn't have the intensity we've had the last couple weeks."
T-O-R jumped out to a 20-0 halftime lead, and made it 30-0 before Dayton got on the board.
Bulldogs quarterback Colton Bickelhaupt found Garett Turner for a 25-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter to account for Dayton's lone score.
"T-O-R, they're pretty strong up front, they're a pretty physical ball club," coach Bickelhaupt said. "They've got a good group of 10 seniors starting.
"We played them tough at times, but had some mental breakdowns that we hadn't had the last few games. We just need to get it back together. These kids will bounce back, I have trust in them. They'll finish strong and play hard every game."
Dayton, now 1-2 in SE2B-11 play, and 1-5 overall, hosts DeSales Friday.
"We'll keep the kids positive," Bickelhaupt said. "They've been working hard. I told the kids to forget about it (the loss to T-O-R), work hard in practice and get back to where we were."
