The shores of the Chesapeake Bay are filled with a bustle wind that blows in the direction Bowie Bulldogs football stadium, in their annual battle against the Eleanor Roosevelt Raiders. Out of the gate, the Raiders put up their first touchdown, with an extra point and a 25 yard rocket into the end zone. 12 yard rush into the end zone also gets them another point, with the Bulldogs trailing behind to keep up with the powerful offense. At the one yard line, all changes when Roosevelt fumbles, giving Bowie the chance to recover. All seems lost for Bowie, until a rocket of a pass puts them on the board. A two point conversion puts them on the board, but they were no use for the might of the Raiders, with a final score of 24-14.
