ARLEY, Ala. – The Meek Tigers looked to start off region play 1-0 Friday night with their first win of the season at home against South Lamar. Unfortunately, it was all Stallions from the start as the Tigers wound up falling, 62-0.

On Meek’s opening possession, Matthew Clark fumbled the ball, and it was recovered by South Lamar, who scored on just the third play of its series on an 8-yard touchdown pass to make it 7-0. It would be all Stallions in the first half as the Tigers were held to just four first downs and 106 yards on offense in the half, with one of those coming on a penalty. South Lamar wound up finding the end zone six more times and Meek found itself down 48-0 at the half.

South Lamar found the end zone two more times in the second half, but the Tigers kept on battling throughout the game and they never quit. In the end, they wound up on the wrong side of a 62-0 defeat at the hands of the Stallions and fall to 0-3 on the season and 0-1 in the region.

Clark and Stuart Waldrep each finished with 63 yards on the ground for the Tigers and James Brown added 23 more on the ground as well. Tommy Daniel recovered a pair of fumbles on defense. Meek will continue region play next week when it travels to take on Hubbertville.
