Meigs County eliminates South Greene for the third year in a row
For the third straight season South Greene visits Meigs County with their season on the line as both teams look to advance to the TSSAA 2A state quarterfinals. The Tigers got the best of the Rebels the last two seasons and they look to make it three on Friday night.
Meigs County received the opening kickoff and wasted no time getting into the end zone. Mr. Football semifinalist Aaron Swafford did the honors, scoring the touchdown, and 2-pt conversion to give Meigs County an early 8-0 lead.
A blocked punt would set up the Tigers second score, a Swafford pass to Cameron Huckabey, 2-pt conversion good, 16-0 Meigs County.
A South Greene fumble would lead to a Will Meadows score. A Rebels interception shortly after led to another Swafford touchdown and Meigs County was in total control, going up 32-0 at halftime.
A stop led to a Jackson Fritts touchdown early in the third quarter and the mercy rule was on.
For the third straight year, Meigs County eliminates South Greene, 39-7.
Due to Oneida upsetting Hampton, the Tigers will host the Indians next Friday in the state quarterfinals.
On the TSSAA brackets, the top team on the bracket is supposed to host, unless it's two teams playing from the same region, then the higher seed will host. The Tigers and Indians are in the same region with Meigs County defeating Oneida 24-3 on October 18th on the road.
