Ottumwa sophomore Matthew Moreland (25) sacks Mount Pleasant quarterback Dustin Amos (10) during the Bulldogs' 46-3 victory over the Panthers at Mapleleaf Stadium in Mount Pleasant. Ottumwa has yet to allow a touchdown through two games this season and appeared to have rolled to a 2-0 start to the season by outscoring its first two opponents 79-6, but the discovery of an academically ineligible player's participation in the 33-3 season-opening win over Keokuk on Monday forced OHS to forfeit the Aug. 31 contest. Now 1-1, Ottumwa will look to bounce back after the ruling this Friday when the Bulldogs head to Williams Stadium in Des Moines to face former CIML Metro rival East High at 7:30 p.m.
