McGehee defeated Dewitt 35-0 at home tonight to win the 8 4-A conference championship. The Owls finished the regular season play with a 9-1 overall record and undefeated in conference play. McGehee has a bye in the first round of the playoffs next week.
Dewitt didn’t pose much of a threat to the Owls during the game and the mercy rule went into effect early in the third quarter. The second string saw some playing time and the Owls took a knee on the 1-yard line in the fourth quarter to avoid running up the score.
Dewitt finishes its season with a 2-8 record.
