The Centreville football team is taking home the Bullhorns thanks to a convincing 36-0 win at Mendon on Thursday night.

"Getting the Bullhorns for our senior year and beating Mendon at their home field," senior quarterback Sam Todd said. "I can't even express the feelings that all of us have right now."

With the victory, the Bulldogs claimed at least a piece of its first conference title in football in 41 years.

"It is the first time I was told since 79 I think we've had a conference championship so yeah that's awesome," first year head coach Jerry Schultz said. "It is great for the community and I'm happy for the boys."

Todd had a big night with three rushing touchdowns, the senior quarterback also connected with Tristan McElroy on a 25-yard scoring pass to give the Bulldogs an 8-0 lead in the first quarter.

"Last year after a tough junior year and coming out this year and going 4-0 after we weren't even going to be able to play" Todd said, "and now getting a chance at the conference championship is a huge deal."

Mendon also entered the game at 3-0, but Centreville was able to get a key early stop in the red zone to keep the Hornets off the board to set the tone for the rest of the game.

"We just worked so hard this summer," Schultz added. "The kids just ran the offense perfectly, our defense, of course, always flying around and to get a shutout on this team is pretty amazing because they are a great team, a team we are definitely going to see in the playoffs."

The Bulldogs can take the Southwest 10 conference championship outright with a win at Hartford on Friday October 16th.
