Game Summary By Ed Greif

The Meigs County Tigers scored on 8-of-10 possessions to take a 46-6 victory over the Rockwood Tigers in a rematch of last season's playoff game at Decatur, where Rockwood defeated Meigs County 9-8 to eliminate the hosts in the quarterfinal round of the Class 2A playoffs.

After holding Rockwood to three plays and out on their first possession, Meigs County drove 47 yards in four plays to take a 7-0 lead with 9:34 left in the first quarter. Gabriel Maldonado scored on a 12-yard run for the early lead. Nic Adcock booted the PAT.

Again, Meigs County held Rockwood to three plays and out, taking over at the Rockwood 37. Martin Smith exploded for 68 yards to give the hosts a 13-0 lead with 6:45 left in the quarter. Adcock's PAT made it 14-0.

Four plays later, Brackett picked off a Logan Carroll pass and returned it 13 yards to the Rockwood 36, where Bazel broke several tackles and weaved his way the distance for his team's score with 2:39 left in the first quarter. Ben Woodall's PAT was no good, leaving Rockwood behind 14-6.

A 29-yard kickoff return by Caleb Hyde put Meigs County good positition, but a penalty on the hosts moved the ball to their 21. The running of Martin Smith, Michael Moseley and Maldonado set up Martin Smith's 8-yard TD run for a 20-6 lead, but the PAT failed in the early seconds of the second quarter.

Another three and out by Rockwood gave Meigs County at the Rockwood 26. Five plays later, Martin Smith scored his third TD on a 10-yard run for a 26-6 lead with 7:11 left in the half. The two-point conversion failed.
