The Mustangs demolished Lewiston 82-0 to earn a spot in the state playoffs against Lyons-Decatur Northeast on Halloween. Kick off is at 5 p.m.

It took just under three minutes for Meridians offensive engine to ignite.

Once the Mustangs got their offense rolling, Lewiston had no answer on how to slow down the high-powered machine.

Meridian started fast and never let up on either side of the ball en route to steamrolling Lewiston 82-0 Friday evening in the Mustangs regular season home finale.

The Mustangs offense erupted for 440 yards of total offense while their defense limited Lewiston to 70 total yards of offense.
