The Butler band's halftime show rivaled the action on the football field Friday night at White Road Stadium.
When the dancing, baton twirling and tackling were all over, Butler had defeated Josey 21-12.
The teams combined for 17 penalties and five fumbles. Josey (1-7, 1-5 Region 3-AAAA) managed to get off only six plays during the first quarter, and two of those resulted in fumbles.
Despite having more yards in penalties (80) than passing (77), Butler (3-6, 2-5) was able to run away from the Eagles using the legs of Kelvin Brown and Cornell Scales. Brown tallied 121 yards on 21 carries, while Scales had 15 carries for 98 yards.
Bulldogs head coach David Land said the win was sufficient, especially after last week's 62-0 loss to Statesboro.
"Real tough loss last week," Land said. "We told them that we had to play for 40 minutes, and I think they did. I'm real proud of my boys."
Travis Shubert led the way for Josey, scoring both of the Eagles' touchdowns.
