Dawson scored the first touchdown of the game, but Meridian tallied four straight touchdowns en route to a 27-6 victory on Friday.
Dawson received the ball at the beginning of the game and quarterback Lane Dotson scored. The Bulldogs missed he point after for a 6-0 Dawson lead.
Dawson had other opportunities as Meridian turned the ball over on downs on its first drive. Dawson then recovered a fumble with seconds left in the first quarter. Dawson's Dalton Long later recovered a fumble to begin the third quarter. In all instances, the Buldogs were unable to covert the Meridian miscues into points.
