As is the case in many rivalry games, both teams came out tight, with Meek holding the Bulldogs to a quick three and out before quickly punting after just three plays of their own. But on only the third offensive series of the game the Addison offense would hit their stride and never look back, marching 53 yards for the touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
Meek would not be so lucky, as its offense never seemed to find a rhythm, punting the ball back to the Bulldogs after another quick three and out and producing negative three yards of total offense in the first quarter.
The entire first half would see Meek move the ball just 28 yards in total, as Addison would take a 34-0 lead into halftime. The Bulldogs were able to rack up 238 offensive yards in the first half, scoring on runs of 1, 4, 30, and 39 yards and a 22 yard pass that came on a quick one play drive that was set up by a Tiger punt that netted only 4 yards.
The second half was a mere repeat of the first, with Meek being forced to punt on its first drive and Addison methodically marching down the field to score its first time with the ball.
In spite of the lopsided scoreboard, the Tigers never gave up, finding a way to score a touchdown with just 0:21 remaining on the clock. The onsides kick then mercifully squirted out of bounds, allowing the Bulldogs to take a knee and begin preparing for their next game against Appalachian. Meek will hope to bounce back next week against Ragland.
Addison was led by Taylor Wilson, who rushed the ball 8 times for 85 yards and 2 touchdowns. John Everett also added 84 yards and a touchdown while hitting 4 of 5 passing attempts. Meek was led by Seth Hayes, who managed 60 all purpose yards.
