The Bulldogs' Broderick Jones ran for 210 yards and paced a Summer Creek offense that accounted for 498 total yards.

After a 7-7 halftime tie, Memorial grabbed the lead on a TD runback by Dylan Gonzalez of a short Summer Creek punt. 

But Summer Creek rebounded with the help of a TD runs of 26 and 18 by Jones and, in between, a 51-yard TD burst by quarterback Zachary Walker.

The Mavericks pulled to within six points early in the fourth quarter as Ryan Ragone scored from 16 yards out.

Memorial's attempts to pull out a victory were stymied by a missed field goal and a late interception.
