The Mavs led 41-19 at halftime, allowed the Wildcats to pull within 12 points after three quarters, but then accelerated through a big fourth quarter to earn the victory.
Mason Vaughn led Meadowdale in scoring with 18 points; Hunter Moen scored 17 points while Cole Nelson added 12 points in the win.
Gage McLeod tallied 12 points to lead Oak Harbor in scoring.
The Mavs will play a home game on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, welcoming the Cedarcrest Red Wolves to Meadowdale High School; tipoff is set for 7:15 p.m.
