Addison ground out a 28-0 victory over Winston-county rival Meek on Friday night, sending the Bulldogs to their fourth consecutive win of the season.
Addison’s backfield workhorses, Landon Robinson and John Everett, accounted for much of the offense on the night as the running back and quarterback piled up more than 80 yards apiece.
Robinson opened the scoring for the Bulldogs in the first quarter with a 15-yard jaunt to the end zone. But just as in weeks past, Addison’s difficulties in converting extra-point opportunities continued.
The Bulldogs carried a 6-0 lead into the second quarter, but Jesse Seals struck paydirt at the 10:08 mark with an 85-yard punt return. Addison failed on the ensuing 2-point attempt.
While the Bulldogs struggled with point-after attempts, Caleb Estill pushed the halftime score to 15-0 with a 30-yard field goal.
The final two scores of the night belonged to Addison as Everett scored on a 1-yard scamper with 4:50 remaining in the third quarter. The point-after kick failed again.
Just over three minutes later, Jake Wade crossed the goal line on an 11-yard run. This time, the point-after attempt was good.
Addison and Meek are both 4-2 overall this season. The Bulldogs are 4-1 in Class 1A, Region 6, while the Tigers are now 2-2.
Addison will travel to Dora next week to battle Sumiton Christian.
The Bulldogs had 11 first downs, amassed 214 rushing yards and 29 in the air on 4 for 6 passing. Meek was held to eight first downs, 82 yards rushing and 71 passing.
Jed Cross and Justin Bladow both intercepted passes for Addison.
Hanceville 12, Winfield 0: The Bulldogs never used to be able to beat the Pirates.
Now they’ve done it two years in a row.
Brontae Harris had four interceptions and returned one for a touchdown in a shutout victory for Hanceville, its third straight win of the season after an 0-3 start.
The 3-3 (2-2 in Class 3A, Region 7) Bulldogs will stay on the road another week to face Winston County next Friday.
Danville 22, Good Hope 19: The Raiders’ attempt at a a second Class 3, Region 7 victory was thwarted on the road Friday night.
Good Hope trailed 22-0 before storming back in the second half. However, after cutting Danville's lead to three, the Raiders were unable to muster anything on offense, failing to score on their last three possessions.
The loss drops Good Hope's record to 2-4 overall with a 1-3 mark in region play heading into next week’s home game against county- and region-rival Vinemont.
