HUBBERTVILLE, Ala. – After earning a big region win at South Lamar last week, the Meek Tigers were back on the road this week to face another region foe. This week they traveled to Hubbertville to take on the Lions but fell behind early and were never able to find a rhythm on the offensive side of the ball. The Tigers fell on the road 44-14.

Hubbertville built a 16-0 lead early in the first quarter to put the Tigers in a hole, but Meek was able to get on the board and cut the lead to 16-8 going into the second quarter. The Lions added another touchdown early in the second to pull ahead 23-8 and were able to find the end zone again just before the half to take a 30-8 lead into the locker room at the break.

The Tigers cut the lead to 30-14 early in the third quarter but Hubbertville was able to respond with another score of its own later in the third to make it a 37-14 game going into the fourth quarter. Meek wasn’t able to get on the scoreboard in the final frame and the Lions tacked on seven more points to put the game out of reach and wrap up a 44-14 region win.

The Tigers drop to 3-2 with the loss and will be off next week before hosting Marion County in another region game Oct. 1.
