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.
