Seiling Knocks off No. 1 Laverne in Revenge Win 

The Pigskin Preview pegged Laverne as their top team to beat in Class B. Not to be ignored, Seiling was ranked No. 3 behind Dewar despite having lost to Laverne in the state finals last season. Friday night, we got a taste of a huge matchup pitting No. 3 versus No. 1. 

In a revenge victory for the Wildcats, they knocked off Laverne, 46-28. Ironically the score from the state title game last year was, 36-28 Laverne. 

So, what does it mean to win this game, this early in the season? I think it means you have a new No. 1 at the top of Class B. 

Can Woodward Right the Ship? 

Starting the season 0-2 is not the end of the world but know where the panic button is located. The Boomers are looking at their 10th losing season in a row. However, there is hope. New leadership understands the state of affairs and are actively working to right the ship. But coaches can only do so much. The players are the key. They must decide amongst themselves to compete and do whatever it takes to win. Help the younger players develop and grow. Take a piece from the East side playbook and work with the youth kids who will soon be your starters at the varsity level. Coach Ken Gordon understands the formula, execution is next. 

Sharon-Mutual Makes Easy Work of Class B Canton 

Coming out of the smallest football class in Oklahoma, the Trojans of Sharon-Mutual defeated Class B Canton, 42-12. 

Why is this win important for the Trojans? New head coach Tate Beer is changing the culture and expectations at Sharon-Mutual. The Trojans are 2-0 with wins over Beaver and Canton. Last season the Trojans won three game all season. 

We’re not saying they should be crowned champions, but it’s good to see a team with players who buy in to the new narrative under new leadership.
