The Wadley Bulldogs were in charge at home Friday night in a 40-0 drubbing of Fayetteville.

Wadley had little trouble moving the football in the region win as the Bulldogs racked up 287 rushing yards and 86 passing yards for a total of 373 yards.

Leading the way on the ground for the Bulldogs was quarterback T.L. Heard, who went for 126 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries. Kamauri Avery added 56 yards on just nine carries, while Chandler McClain added 78 yards and one touchdown on just five carries.

However, the real story was the Wadley defense, which held Fayetteville to only 64 total yards of offense.

Wadley's football clinic began with a 7-yard touchdown run from Adrian Marable with 7:49 left in the first quarter. The point after was no good.

Then with 2:47 left in the first quarter, Heard took in a 9-yard touchdown run. The point after was good, putting Wadley on top 13-0.

Heard added another touchdown on the ground with a 23-yard run with 0:20 left in the opening quarter. The point after was good and the Bulldogs led 20-0.

Wadley called upon its big Dog in the backfield for its next score as Avery punched in a 25-yard touchdown run with 8:06 left in the second quarter. The extra point gave Wadley a 27-0 edge.

With 0:06 left in the second quarter, Wadley added another score to the tally with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Heard to Marable. The extra point made the score 34-0 at the half.

Marable had a solid night in the passing game, catching five passes for 59 yards and one touchdown.

The Bulldogs tacked on one last score with 9:03 left in the game with a 13-yard touchdown run courtesy of McClain. The point after was no good, making the final 40-0 in favor of the Bulldogs.

Wadley improves to 2-1 overall and 2-0 in region play with the win. This week, Wadley will hit the road to take on Talladega County Central.

Talladega County Central is 1-2 overall so far this season with its only win coming last week over Winterboro, 28-24.
