HOLDENVILLE — Meeker punted just once Thursday night as it pulverized Holdenville 56-24 in a District 2A-2 confrontation.
The Bulldogs, who entered the night tied with Prague for second in the district at 3-1, led 48-12 at the intermission after sprinting to a 32-6 advantage after one quarter. The second half was played primarily with a continual-running clock.
Quarterback Jacob Martin threw two touchdown passes — a 68-yarder to Jarett Marks and a 15-yarder to Caden Wolford — and added a 17-yard scoring run. The 165-pound junior also completed five 2-point conversion passes, of which two were to Noah Breedlove.
Meeker rushed for 360 yards on 35 carries, a 10.2-yard average.
Dawson Stanberry, a senior, posted a team-high 177 rushing yards on eight attempts, including a 76-yard scoring romp.
Wolford aided the cause with 66 rushing yards on 11 efforts, including touchdowns of 7, 4 and 5 yards.
Martin was 7 of 10 through the airways for 177 yards and rushed for 51 on four carries.
Freshman Zach Cook added 38 yards on nine carries.
The Bulldogs didn’t commit a turnover. Holdenville posted one, a fumble recovered by senior Nick Redding.
Other than the punt, Meeker faced only one other fourth-down situation — a pass completion for a first down.
Martin has accounted for 18 touchdowns (11 rushing, seven passing).
Meeker improved to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in 2A-2.
Holdenville dropped to 3-5 overall and 1-4 in district play.
Meeker’s next district contest will be Friday, Oct. 26 against visiting Prague.
