But Fouts, who had just nine carries, made the most of his.
In the middle of the fourth quarter, senior linebacker Matt Hickman intercepted Reeves. Five plays later, Fouts took a dive handoff, saw a gap up the middle, and scored on a 25-yard run to give his team a 13-3 lead.
“We feel like we've got three really good running backs,” Bulldogs coach Justin Meredith said. “Gavin stepped right in and did a wonderful job.”
Moore made things interesting late in the fourth with a touchdown and a recovered onside kick. But the Edmond Memorial defense held strong, forcing a missed field goal with 1:37 left.
“It's a breath of fresh air, for sure,” Fouts said of winning two straight after the bad start. “Those first three losses were tough. I almost forgot what it tasted like to win, but it's delicious to win again.”
