Wolford had scoring runs of 15, 10 and 27 yards while catching a 65-yard aerial from Martin.
Martin’s 42-yard touchdown run ignited a 22-0 first quarter for the Bulldogs, who also tallied 25 points in the second, in building a commanding 47-0 halftime advantage.
Martin also connected with Keavin Grady on a 27-yard pass and Kobi Norton on a 14-yarder for Meeker’s other passing touchdowns.
Norton later scored off a 44-yard run and Budgie Cameron had a 35-yard return for a score early in the game for the Bulldogs.
After the 27-yard TD pass from Martin to Grady, female kicker Lauren Miller booted her first extra point.
