Andalusia and Citronelle finished in a tie Friday night at the Bulldogs’ annual spring game in Andalusia.

Citronelle got a good start in the first half, scoring two touchdowns when the varsity team got their reps.

Andalusia evened the game up when head coach Brian Seymore sent in the junior varsity squad in the second half.

“We definitely have got some things to work on offensively and defensively,” Seymore said. “I saw some good things. I saw a lot of younger players play hard.”

Seymore said it is common to see a lot of busted plays and missed assignments.

“That’s a part of it — it’s common with spring practice — you’d expect that,” he said. “I saw a lot of individuals playing hard and a lot of others not as much. I’m very optimistic with what we’ve got.”

The Bulldogs will start their summer workout program the second week of June, where the team will endure early morning workouts, position meetings and 7-on-7 tournaments. The summer workout program lasts through July.

“As a whole offensively and defensively, we had a great effort after eight days of practice,” Seymore added about the game. “I felt like we got what we wanted to get accomplished.

“It was exactly what we wanted to get out of it,” he said. “It’s an evaluation period, and that’s what we wanted to use it for. We know what we’ve got to address now and now we’ll move forward.”
