The Eustace Bulldogs made Heath Ragle a winner in his debut as their head coach, beating the Canton Eagles, 26-21, Friday night.
Canton, a Class 3A school, beat the Class 2A Bulldogs last season, 34-14. Ragle was a defensive coordinator on that team and took over when Brian Herman departed in the spring after leading the team to the playoffs in consecutive seasons.
The Bulldogs will try to put a winning streak together next week when they host the Rice Bulldogs in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at The Boneyard. Eustace claimed a 26-23 win over Rice last season.
