Winning a title is never easy, but the Franklin County Bulldogs put it all together Sunday to do just that.

The Bulldogs rallied from a 13-0 halftime deficit, and Casey Burke’s conversion with two minutes remaining lifted the club to a 26-25 win over Southbridge in the Suburban League PeeWee Super Bowl.

Franklin County battled back led by the running attack of Bryce Zraunig. Burke’s conversion gave the Bulldogs a 26-25 lead, and the defense held on to seal the deal with a stand on the final drive.
