— Gavin Fouts got an opportunity to carry the ball again, and he took full advantage of it.

Fouts ran for 135 yards and a touchdown and Edmond Memorial won its second straight game 13-10 over Moore on Thursday at Wantland Stadium.

The game was a defensive struggle, with Moore leading 3-0 at halftime and well into the third quarter.

And with about four minutes left in the third, Moore punter Corey Reeves, also the team's quarterback, pinned the Bulldogs back at their 5-yard line.

But on the next play, Fouts took the ball, hit the A-gap, came back across the line and bursted for an 86-yard gain.

Two plays later, fellow running back Daniel Smith punched it in on an eight-yard touchdown run.

“Our line blocked their butts off,” Fouts said. “They really presented the opportunities. They created some holes, and I was glad I was able to take advantage of that.”

After an 0-3 start, Fouts, a senior, was moved to receiver for last week's win over Putnam City North, with Smith and sophomore Michael Farmer sharing the carries.

But in that win, Farmer suffered a turf toe injury, keeping him out of Thursday's game.
