Mustang over Yukon, 49-21
Mustang has been far and away the west-side’s best big-school team by the eye test en route to a 4-0 start. After trailing by a touchdown early to rival Yukon, it dominated the Millers scoring five unanswered touchdowns.
Broken Arrow over Southmoore, 52-7
With so many things going against the Tigers in the first three games, you felt as though this game was a coin flip between two teams struggling to find an identity. Both teams were 0-3 and scoring points was an issue. Southmoore had to punt on their first drive, which was returned for a touchdown, essentially opening the flood gates for the Tigers who posted 45 points at halftime. Will this win be enough to get the Tigers back on track?
Bixby over Norman North, 60-2
What can you say about Bixby that hasn’t already been said? Yes, they are good. Yes, they are the favorite. Norman North was supposed to be one of or the best team from the West, but now it appears they will certainly drop in the ranks while Jenks and Union will move up. The performance by Bixby is impressive, but it’s what we’ve come to expect.
Norman over Edmond North, 34-28
This result was outright shocking and added to the confusion of where each team stands in the metro rankings. This result begs the question, is Norman better than expected, or is Edmond North worse than expected?
Westmoore over Moore, 37-33
Once again, the Jaguars own Moore War. After the Lions shot out to a 24-10 lead, Westmoore came back to earn its 23rd win over Moore in 24 years.
Union over Owasso, 55-22
A big bounce-back win for Union after losing the Backyard Bowl to the Trojans. QB Shaker Reisig showed why he may be the top quarterback in the state. Barry Lewis of the Tulsa World reported Reisig threw for 322-yards and was 22-of-27 passing with 5 TDs. Tough game for the Rams who are now 2-2 heading into their game with Mustang at Owasso.
Sapulpa over Durant, 56-0
What? Sapulpa explodes for 56! This Sapulpa team woke up on August 26th, the day after losing to Sand Springs, and said, “nope, we’re not going out like that.” Prior to this game with Durant, Sapulpa was all-in on shootout type games, but this week the defense stepped up and shut out the Lions. Big win for a program that has a QB capable of doing some big things this season.
Noble over Ardmore, 28-27
The Bears edged the Tigers by one. Ardmore’s 0-4 to start the year. That’s unlike coach Josh Newby, whose Tigers have been a powerhouse in Class 5A in recent memory.
Adair over Sequoyah-Claremore, 39-36
This one goes down as one of the biggest upsets in the state Friday night as Adair gathered its first win, in the process dealing Sequoyah-Claremore its first loss.
Cascia Hall 29 over Holland Hall 27
The Hall Brawl! Is that still okay to say? Anyway, this was a hard-fought, nail bitter to the end. Cascia Hall hangs on for the win, but the Dutch gave everyone in attendance a great show towards the end of the game. QB Trey Burleson hits Julius Wilson on a 60-plus yard pass for a TD, but the two-point conversion was stopped with just a little more than two minutes on the clock. The win marks number 300 for coach Joe Medina.
Seminole over Stigler, 24-22
This upset gives the aforementioned 2A-8 showdown a run for its money as Seminole, which has struggled through the early season, took down No. 4 Stigler on Friday night.
Perry over Blackwell, 42-2
Another final ending in a team scoring 2-points. The Battle of the Maroons wasn’t much of a battle as Perry found a way to jump on Blackwell early and never look back. Perry is now 2-2 and better than most people think. A tough one next week will help determine where this team will finish in district.
Regent Prep over Wetumka, 55-48
Can we start talking about Regent Prep? The Rams are 3-0 and feature an offense that loves to score points. They have 165 points in three games. Wetumka is a tough opponent and proved they were game, but the Rams were able to pull out a big win and set themselves up for a run at a district title.
