Luther had a 13-yard TD run in the first quarter on his only carry of the game. Donovan Jones’ 4-yard scoring run capped a 28-point second quarter. Dexter Brown pitched in with a 36-yard TD run in the final period and Jay Billingsley hit both of his field-goal tries on the day.

Graham rushed for 87 yards on just three carries, while Gaither finished with 80 yards on eight attempts. The Bulldogs amassed 551 yards of total offense, including 352 on the ground.

Elijah Snell carried eight times for 56 yards for the Lions, who were held to seven first downs and 75 yards of offense.
