Clinton 31 @ Woodward 13
A week after a shocking loss on the road at Cache, the Clinton Red Tornadoes took care of business in Woodward on Friday night. Clinton took control early and cruised to a 31-13 win which carried with it another district championship in the storied tradition of Red Tornado football. Clinton scored the first 31 before the halftime break then were able to get a bunch of young guys some playing time in the second half. Darius Hicks was the star on the ground for Clinton running 6 times for 103 yards and a TD. Cooper Sulley completed 4/6 for 65 yards with a TD and an INT. Head Coach John Higbee still sees room for improvement, “Still looking for fixing mistakes. Feel way better this week than last week.” Clinton wins the district and possibly gets to stay home inside the friendly confines of the Tornado Bowl for the first two weeks of the playoffs. The Red Tornados finish 6-3, 5-1 in the district and host Bethany in the first round of the 4A playoffs. This one is a rematch from the first round of last year’s playoffs. It was a thriller a year ago in Clinton with the Red Tornadoes emerging with a 34-27 OT victory against the Bronchos.
Elk City 34 @ John Marshall 6
It was a similar result in Oklahoma City with Elk City visiting Taft Stadium to face John Marshall. The Elks got the ground game rolling early and often to put the Bears away by halftime of a 34-6 Week 10 win. The Elks rolled up 131 rush yards on the first two possessions that both ended in the John Marshall end zone. The next two scores before the break were long TD passes of 51 and 61 for a 27-0 halftime advantage. QB LoganWebb completed 2/3 for 132 and two TDs. Jayden Wynn led Elk City on the ground with 114 yards and 2 scores. Head Coach Zac Maynard was pleased with the improvement the Elks showed in Week 10, “I feel like we got better. You see some things technique wise that we needed to get better at. I think you saw some of that.” Elk City finishes the season 7-3 overall and 5-1 in the district. They’ll host Newcastle inside Big Elk Stadium in Round 1. This is also a rematch of a first round game last season that saw the Elks hang on to beat the Racers 28-21.
Cache 21 @ Chickasha 16
For the second straight season Cache and Chickasha met in Week 10 with the fourth and final playoff spot in district 4A-1 on the line. A year ago Chickasha went to Cache and knocked off the Bulldogs in a 34-28 thriller. This year Cache returned the favor on the road at Memorial Stadium in Chickasha. The Chicks led 16-14 at halftime, but Cache scored in the 3rd quarter to make it 21-16 then made that lead stand up all the way to the end. Cache finishes 6-4 overall and 4-2 in the district. Chickasha’s season ends with a 4-6 overall record and 2-4 4A-1 mark. Cache heads to Blanchard this week for the first round of the 4A-1 playoffs.
