Not alot to say, I was at game first time they played this year. It was a good game until after half time. Not sure what happened to Rockwood at that point. But I know Meigs came out playing like they didn't want to lose.

Looked like they came out with a fire lit under them. Offense led the way. Offensive line played great coming out of the half but no doubt Swafford led the way with his feet. Not to mention all the onside kicks.

I think Meigs wins this one if they can stay focused and not be looking ahead to the following week. They have a good chance making it to the championship game if they can get by Rockwood, but will be challenged even more the following week by the winner of the Tyner/Marion Co. game. I'm sure Coach Fitzgerald is preaching to his players to play one game at a time, and forget the score from the first meeting with Rockwood.

The word lol year has been “NEXT” this game is just next for the players. One game at a time but they know that you can’t overlook anyone. That being said though I think MC wins comfortably: 40-14

The team they play next is just the next step to get to where they want to be. That obviously being the State Championship in Cookville. 

I imagine Rockwood is thinking the same thing :shock:.  What kind of game will Meigs bring to the table? What can Rockwood do to stop them? Tune in tomorrow 7 p.m. to find out! 8-)

Preview from that Hargis mans paper:

ROCKWOOD TIGERS (9-3) at MEIGS COUNTY TIGERS (12-0)

Storyline: These Region 2 opponents met Sept. 15 at Meigs County, with the home team winning 48-27. Rockwood left that night 2-3, but it hasn't lost since. It is a senior-heavy team that runs a wing-T offense, with sophomore QB Nate Brackett (6-3, 215) directing things behind a big line. Rockwood's first option is inside to FB Ryan McCain (6-3, 215), who's flanked by scatback types in WBs Joe Ashburn (5-7, 140) and Zander Price (5-9, 170). And like most teams that operate this type of offense, it primarily wants to run the ball. But Brackett has a strong, accurate arm and has shown he can make all the throws, including deep. He may have a hard time trying to upstage his counterpart, though. In the earlier meeting, Meigs QB Aaron Swafford, a Mr. Football finalist, ran for four TDs and passed for three. With the recent emergence of RB Martin Smith, who has gained approximately 500 rushing yards the past three games, Rockwood may not be able to solely concentrate on trying to contain Swafford. It tried five-, four- and three-player defensive fronts the first time. Meigs showed its last opponent, Happy Valley, a couple of things it hadn't seen on video. The team that adjusts best should be able to gain an edge. The thing is, there's no time to wait until halftime for that. It will have to be done earlier — and on the fly.

Rockwood was the home team when they first played.
