GC Football: Hubbard rips Meridian 46-6 to end perfect district season

MERIDIAN — The Hubbard Jaguars, behind 134 yards rushing and one touchdown by Logan McClinton and 110 yards and four touchdowns from Trey Henderson, clinched their third straight district championship with a 46-6 win over the Meridian Yellow Jackets.  

The Jaguars scored on four of their first five possessions to sprint out to a 30-0 halftime lead. After surrendering their first points in district play in the third quarter, Hubbard tacked on two more scores in the fourth quarter on Henderson's fourth score of the game and Casen Martin's 2 yard run for the 46-6 win.

Coach Craig Horn's squad relied almost solely on the run as they accumulated 325 yards on the ground, while QB Braydyn Gillham completed four of nine passes for 31 yards. The Hubbard defense lead by LBs Jordan Johnson and Tre' Knight limited the Yellow Jackets to 156 yards of total offense.

Hubbard finishes the regular season 9-1, 4-0 in District 9-1A Division II and receives a bye the first round in the playoffs. Meridian drops to 5-5, 3-1 in district play and will enter the playoffs as the second place team and will face an opponent yet to be determined in bi-district.

    Minutes after Navarro split a doubleheader with Paris on Wednesday, Navarro softball Coach Jessica Karenke was told her Bulldogs had just been nationally ranked and are now No. 16 in the NJCAA national softball poll.
    She had no idea.
    And she didn't care.
    Karenke is worried about what happens on the diamond, and she had some concerns after Navarro made four errors in the second game that opened the door for Paris to pull off a 7-2 win after the Bulldogs and Ciara Luna controlled the first game with a 4-1 win.

    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.
