Ottumwa Courier

---- — Up Next For The Bulldogs: Ottumwa returns home for the first time since opening the season against Keokuk when the Bulldogs take on Indianola.

When and Where: Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. next Friday night at Schafer Stadium in Ottumwa.

Last Season: Turnovers and an inconsistent offense plagued the Ottumwa football team in its 26-7 loss at Indianola. Two turnovers in the first half played a substantial role in the 10-point deficit Ottumwa faced at halftime. In the second half, however, it was offensive stagnation that hurt the Bulldogs. “It was about the worst half of offensive football I’ve ever seen,” Ottumwa head coach Zach Pfantz said. “We either got sacked, we fumbled or threw an interception every play.”
