Offensive woes returned for Harlem on Friday night.

A week after putting up 43 points against Cross Creek, the Bulldogs fell 35-14 to Burke County at Bulldog Stadium.

Harlem (2-5, 1-2 Region 4-AAA) struggled to move the ball consistently. And a few promising drives didn’t result in points, including one in the first half that ended after a bad snap and turnover on downs.

Star running back Cam Garnett didn’t have a carry for more than 10 yards, leaving Jeremiah Ellis to carry the load. He finished with over 100 rushing yards, including a 5-yard touchdown on the game’s final play as time expired

Garnett (shoulder/arm) and Mardrez Harris (ankle) were among the list of key injuries suffered during the game.
