This fall, the Grand Lake Area has countless matchups that will make for exciting games. Here is a closer look at the matchups that stand out the most.
Claremore @ Wagoner 8/24
The season opener for Claremore will be against the reigning 4A State Champions. There will be a lot of talent and energy on the field. This game will be a very exciting way to kick off football in the Grand Lake Area.
Quapaw @ Salina 8/25
This game is a must-watch. Last season the final between the two was 41-40 in favor of Quapaw. Will Salina avenge their loss or will Quapaw come out with another win?
Claremore @ Bartlesville 9/1
This game will be the season opener for Bartlesville. When the two met last season, Bartlesville reigned victorious. Can Claremore change the result or will they again fall to the Bruins?
Oologah @ Claremore 9/8
This game has the potential to be one of the games of the year. When the two clashed a year ago, Claremore came out on top 35-33 after a 4th quarter comeback. Will Oologah flip the script or will Claremore have back-to-back wins?
Bristow @ Jay 10/12
Last season, this matchup ended in a 35-34 victory for Bristow. This game will be exciting, to say the least. Will Jay fall short again or will they come out on top?
Oologah @ Miami 10/19
This game is between two teams from the Grand Lake Area. In last season’s battle, Oologah would get the better of Miami, beating them 22-18. Which Grand Lake Area team will come out victorious?
Muskogee @ Bartlesville 10/27
This game will be a district matchup between the Bartlesville Bruins and the Muskogee Roughers. The Roughers were 11-2 last season and one of their wins was against Bartlesville. Will Bartlesville again fall to Muskogee or will they come away with a win?
