A key stop on a two-point conversion attempt gave the Ludington football team an exciting 21-20 victory over Stockbridge on the road on Thursday.

Ludington quarterback Garret Meeker scored the first touchdown of the game on a two-yard run to end the first quarter. Midway through the second quarter a 32-yard run by Meeker put the Orioles up 14-7.

Stockbridge scored early in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 14-14, then Ludington pulled ahead 21-14 on a 12-yard touchdown burst by Anthony Tenney.

Stockbridge scored with about five minutes left in the game, and decided to go for two points and the lead. Meeker made the key tackle at the goal line to foil the effort and preserve the victory for the Orioles.

Meeker powered the Ludington offense, rushing for 172 yards on 18 carries and throwing for 37 yards on five completions. Tenney finished with 70 yards on 16 carries.

Jevon Robinson had an interception for the Orioles.

Ludington (2-0) heads to Manistee next week to face the Chippewas in a Lakes 8 Conference game.
