Gavyn Malone scored on a six-yard run with six minutes left to play that gave McDowell (0-2) a 21-17 lead. The Titans piled up 402 yard of offense; they ran for 291 yards. Malone ran for a game-high 168 yards and three TDs.

 

Luke Crowe led Avery (1-1) with four receptions for 93 yards and two scores. Jackson threw was 9-19 passing for 157 yards two TD passes.

 

Defensively, Heath Austin led the Vikings with five tackles and nine assists; Chandler Stansb had six stops, two assists, and an interception; D.C. Braswell had two tackles, six assists, a quarterback sack, a tackle-for-loss and he forced a fumble; Kyle Taylor had TFL with four solo tackles.
