PREP FOOTBALL: Meek downs Waterloo on the road 38-12


WATERLOO, Ala. – After getting the season started with wins over Maplesville and Hackleburg in the first two weeks, the Tigers were back on the road Friday night to take on Waterloo. Meek showed up to play on both sides of the ball and left Waterloo unbeaten after defeating the Cougars 38-12.

A 38-yard touchdown run by Cam Deaver put the Tigers in front 6-0 with just over two minutes remaining in the first quarter. Deaver broke loose for another scoring run later in the second quarter, this time from 25 yards out, and a successful two-point conversion extended the lead to 14-0.

A 27-yard touchdown pass from Bradigan Farmer to Jarrett Benson made it a 22-0 game later in the second, but Waterloo was able to find the end zone just before halftime to trim the lead to 22-6 at the break. Another touchdown pass from Farmer to Benson, this time from 15 yards out, stretched the Tiger lead to 30-6 in the third quarter and Meek maintained that lead going into the final frame.

Deaver’s third and final touchdown run of the night put the Tigers in front 38-6 early in the fourth quarter and Meek held on to defeat the Cougars 38-12 and improve to 3-0 on the season.

The Tigers will return home next week to take on Colbert Heights.
