The Bulldogs saw their record fall to 2-4 for the season after a 51-13 loss to Episcopal in their Interstate Athletic Conference opener on Saturday afternoon.

The St. Albans offense was led by senior quarterback Malcolm Spencer’s two touchdown passes. Wideouts Jayden Coffen led the team with three catches for 43 yards and a score, while Cole Matthiesen added two catches, including the other touchdown reception.

The team’s running attack was strong as well. Michael Jones took 28 carries for 179 yards, but a 23-point halftime deficit was too much for the Bulldogs to overcome.

St. Albans will be back in action on Saturday when the Bulldogs travel to battle St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes at 2 p.m.
