Ike scores win at Altus
The Eagles defense produced several turnovers and a goal-line stand on the 1-yard line in its 26-10 win over the Bulldogs on Friday night.
“Extremely proud of our defense making some big-time stops,” Eisenhower head coach Javon Harris said. “Creating turnovers, which was an emphasis for su this week, as well.”
The Eagles defense caught a pair of interceptions, came out with a fumble recovery and blocked a field goal.
Jermaine Veu, a 6-1, 265-pound senior defensive lineman, had a pair of sacks, four tackles-for-loss and an interception return for a touchdown.
“Obviously, we had a much cleaner game than the week before,” Harris said. “Got to see some O-Linemen get some big-time reps with the injuries that have happened in the previous games.”
Ike quarterback Charlie Trachte went 9-14 for 183 yards, ran a rushing touchdown and ran in a 2-point conversion.
Elgin 55, Cache 6
It was a legitimate question whether Cache could provide a test for the Owls ahead of Friday night’s matchup; personally, I imagined it would be a litmus test for how serious Elgin would be in the 5A scene.
The Owls eradicated any questions in their second big win of the year. Through two games, they’re averaging 65.5 points per game.
“I’m proud of the way we came out and played,” Elgin head coach Chalmer Wyatt said. “We had eight drives in the first half and all ended in touchdowns, and we limited [Cache] to three first downs.”
Elgin junior back Matt Lund carried the ball 10 times for 220 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Minco storms into Apache
The eighth-ranked Bulldogs defeated Boone-Apache 33-23 on Friday night.
“It was good to get out of there with the win,” Minco head coach Brock Wardlaw said. “Very ugly at times on our side of things with costly penalties and poor special teams play, but defense stepped up big at times and we made plays on O when we had to go get the win.”
MacArthur wins city title
The Highlanders dominated Lawton 41-7 Friday night at Cameron to take care of the Lawton city round robin title. A week before that, they beat Ike 27-13.
“It feels good,” MacArthur head coach Brett Manning said. “Our team is playing with a lot of excitement and emotion. Our defense has been outstanding through three games and our offense is coming along.”
