No. 5 Elgin scores 54 in route over El Reno, remains perfect
Friday night was a “below average” night for the Owls offense, which is torching competition on over 56 points per game this year.
“Big win on the road to start out 1-0 in district,” Elgin head coach Chalmer Wyatt said. “El Reno is tough up front, and I’m proud of our resiliency and effort. I thought our offense was explosive.”
The Owls won the turnover battle 3-0 en route to a 4-0 record.
“It’s great to get off to the start we have, but we have to continue to improve,” Wyatt said. “We have to stay focused knowing we have big games coming our way starting with Ardmore. We have to hold ourselves to our standard every week.”
Junior running back Matthew Lund took 11 carries for 185 yards and two touchdowns, plus two catches for 84 yards and a touchdown.
Minco keeps Cashion off the scoreboard
Class A No. 6 Minco defeated Cashion 45-0 on the road Friday night. Minco scored 38 points in the first half alone.
“[It] feels good to be 5-0,” Minco head coach Brock Wardlaw said. “It is crazy we are already halfway through the regular season. Good to get that first district win versus Cashion, and now on to the Watonga Eagles.”
MacArthur downs Duncan
5A No. 8 Lawton MacArthur tabbed another W on the board Friday night in a district win over Duncan, 59-28 at Cameron.
“We are happy to be 4-0 and 1-0 in district,” MacArthur head coach Brett Manning said, “But we still have a lot of work to do. We have a tough district schedule and our goal is to get better each week.”
Boone-Apache stuns Mangum
Don’t call it an upset. Apache took down Class A No. 9 Mangum 49-28 on the road Friday night. The Warriors moved to 3-1 while the Tigers dropped to 4-1.
[I’m] really proud of everyone,” Apache head coach Tanner Koons said.
Koons commended the performances of Matt Beavers, Sammy Serbanic, Brandon Lindsey, Zack Roberts and Dayton Scott.
With Apache surging near the halfway point of the season, could the Warriors enter the “contender” conversation? They’ve dropped only one loss to sixth-ranked Minco on Week 1.
