Game: Played Friday December 3, 1982 at Sweet Water
          Darryl Landrum scored four times and rushed for 134 yards on 23 carries to lead the Sweet Water bulldogs to their third state championship in five years. Akron turned the football over four times to assist the Bulldogs on their way.
          Akron got on the scoreboard first on their second offensive play when Walter Bryant ran 65 yards for a touchdown with 10:56 remaining in the first quarter. The Bulldogs answered with a long drive and a one yard run by Landrum for a 7-6 lead. It would be all the points Sweet Water need on the evening.
          The Bulldogs score twice in the third quarter and twice in the final stanza to put Akron away.
