Sand Springs over Ponca City, 27-14
An impressive win for the Sandites, getting the job done without their starting QB Easton Webb who was sidelines due to an injury suffered in the Bixby game. Big game defensively for Alex Dudley and Gatlin Gunn. Both made huge plays in the secondary.
Edmond North over Enid, 42-27
The Huskies haven’t yet surrendered their offensive momentum a week after a 21-point win against Edmond Memorial. Pryce Bender became Edmond North’s all-time leader in career passing touchdowns. The Huskies are averaging 42 points per game over their last three matches.
Collinsville over Bartlesville, 27-14
The 3-0 Cardinals of Collinsville have a stud in running back Scott Rigby. He broke a big 42-yard run for a TD to put this one away for Collinsville. These Birds are tough to beat with Hudson Henslick on the roster. This kid could find the endzone blindfolded in the dark.
Edmond Memorial over Southmoore, 51-7
After taking a big Edlam loss to crosstown North last week, the Bulldogs rallied to win big on the SaberCats. Kansas commit David McComb is averaging over 390 passing yards per game, spreading the wealth between receivers Ciaran Pedulla, Billy McDown and others.
Lincoln Christian over Shiloh Christian, 20-14
The Bulldogs show they are the real deal with this win over Shiloh Christian, a perennial powerhouse in Arkansas. Lincoln’s Sawyer Brooks in the best kept secret in the class and the Bulldog defense came up big in this one.
Midwest City over Putnam City North, 31-13
An 88-yard Josh Lombard-to-Isaiah Wallace cut Midwest City’s lead to 11 in the fourth quarter, but Jaylan Woody’s 63-yard breakaway run with five minutes to go set up the final.
Coweta over Pryor, 17-8
It was all about the Coweta Tiger defense in those one. Pryor gave up four turnovers. You can’t win giving up that many turnovers. Coweta QB Noah Cooper looked good as well. Important win for the Tigers moving forward.
Guthrie over Tuttle, 20-3
Guthrie’s defense looked spectacular against a talented Tuttle team as the Bluejays took away a big non-district win. Offensively, Jaylen Harper had a big night against a hardened defense, including almost all of the yards and the final score on an 80-yard drive that all but sealed the game late in the fourth quarter.
Glenpool over Fort Gibson, 21-14
This is a huge win for Glenpool. It keeps them in the Power 20, but more importantly they are 2-1 heading into their week 4 matchup with Coweta. That game could have playoff implications in district 5A-3. Nice win for head coach Israel Maselera.
Claremore over Hilldale, 63-13
Claremore dismantled Hilldale to start the season 3-0. As Claremore Progress sports editor Kevin Green pointed out, it’s the first time since 2012 the Zebras have started 3-0.
Blanchard over Shawnee, 34-31
It’s a big win for Blanchard, but it was an almost worse loss for Shawnee. The Wolves will enter district play against Bishop McGuinness next week with two tight non-district losses against two schools of smaller classifications.
Carl Albert over Elk City, 56-14
VYPE+ west expert Aaron Kauk wrote a great piece highlighting the best teams to ever play in Big Elk Stadium. Carl Albert joined that list Friday night.
Wagoner over Grove, 35-14
Revenge is best served cold. Wagoner would not be denied this year as they take out Grove in the Bulldogs home opener. The Dawgs and Witt Edwards are a problem for a lot of teams.
Chelsea over Caney Valley, 52-15
It may not get a lot of run in the newspaper, but congrats to coach Brad Farrow and the Green Dragons. Two tough games to open the season with an 0-2 start, but Chelsea is back on track, picking up a big win at home.
Newcastle over Woodward, 69-7
What’s going on in Newcastle? This team is averaging 46 points a game heading into district play.
