Smith took the bulk of Thursday's carries, rushing 19 times for 77 yards.

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.”
