Here are some action shots from the Bulldogs' hard-fought battle on Friday.
Another great Batavia Football season came to a close on Friday. The Bulldogs battled the Downers Grove North Trojans on Friday at Batavia High School. In the end, the Trojans would emerge with a 38-26 victory. Although their playoff run ended too early, Batavia had an incredible regular-season run. They went undefeated for the second season in a row, even against top-ranked teams like Glenbard North. One things for sure, the Bulldogs give it their all. Thank you for supporting the football team and all Batavia athletics! A very special thanks goes to Debi Paradiso for these game photos. See coverage of the Bulldogs' 9-1 fall 2012 season.
