And in the process, Meridian dismantled the improved Dawson Bulldogs, 43-8, to open the District 10-2A, Division II schedule on the road last Friday night.

IREDELL 62

EVANT 16

After opening the season with a loss, the Iredell Dragons won their third straight in convincing fashion, thrashing the Evant Elks, 62-16, last Friday night.

Clifton bounces back vs. Bruceville-Eddy

Rebounding from a disappointing loss on the road to Maypearl, the Clifton Cubs wrapped up their non-district schedule with a dominating 45-7 victory at Bruceville-Eddy last Friday night.

Senior runnuing back Marc Gutierrez rushed for 234 yards and four touchdowns to lead the defending District 11-3A, Division II champion Cubs (2-2) to the win.

“I was pleased with how we bounced back from last week,” Clifton head coach Chuck Caniford said. “We were able to learn a lot from the Maypearl game and got focused this week. Our guys did a really nice job of getting themselves ready to play on Friday night. We were focused in our pre-game preparations and that carried over into the game.”

In the first three games of the season, Clifton moved the ball effecitvely, but struggled finishing drives by putting the ball in the endzone. But against the Eagles, the Cubs scored on their first two possessions of the game.
