Bulldogs, Highlanders battle for MEC title

3:48 am | November 1, 2013

An Elvis Presley reincarnation couldn’t draw the fans to John Orr Field the way that Hampton and Cloudland will tonight in a battle of the conference unbeatens.

It will be “Heartbreak Hotel” for the loser, with the Mountain East Conference championship on the line. They’ll be no “Hound Dogs” running ’round, but you can bet the Bulldogs and Highlanders will try and be cruel to one another — leaving fans “all shook up” before the night ends.

Undefeated Cloudland (5-0, 9-0) and ranked No. 2 in Class 1-A look to knock off Hampton (5-0, 6-3) for the first time in a decade. Cloudland’s last win came in 2003, and this time a whole lot is at stake.
