No. 1 Tipton thrashes No. 4 Mountain View-Gotebo
As it has all year, Tipton’s football team dominated Mountain View-Gotebo 60-14 Friday night, likely claiming the District C-2 championship in the process. The defending Class C champions have defeated district competitors by an average margin of almost 37 points this year.
“We played well. A little shaky on defense in the first quarter,” Tipton head coach Travis White said. “Then we made a few adjustments and that helped. We played well on offense the whole night.”
Mountain View dropped to 6-2 with the loss while Tipton jumped to 8-2.
“I don’t have the stats done yet, but we scored 54 in the first half. One of them was a TD off a defensive stop with 16 seconds left in the half. Hit our RB on a speed out and he took it 60 for the TD. We had probably seven or eight different people score a TD or a 2-point.”
The Tigers will play Corn Bible Academy (4-4) at 7 p.m. Friday.
Elgin 48, Duncan 7
The Duncan Banner’s web headline after the Demons fell to 5A No. 4 Elgin on Friday night read, “Despite loss, Duncan holds Elgin to 48 points.” That was the second-lowest point total a 5A-I team has held Elgin to this year.
The Owls’ perfect 8-0 record and 55.5 points per game remains one of the top stories of the year. Elgin’s defense has allowed only a score or less in every game this year but one.
“We feel we are right where we thought we could be,” Elgin head coach Chalmer Wyatt said. “Now, we have to prepare to beat the two best teams on our schedule.”
The Owls close the regular season with games against MacArthur and Midwest City.
Lawton MacArthur 46, El Reno 7
Against the same El Reno offense that scored 68 points and shattered the state running record three weeks ago (and hasn’t been held to one score since Week 2), questionably unranked MacArthur surrendered only a touchdown and put 46 points on the board Thursday night.
Cache 49, John Marshall 8
Cache remains in the playoff hunt after routing John Marshall on Friday night. The Bulldogs (4-4) are sitting comfortably at fourth in District 4A-I behind Clinton, Elk City and Weatherford.
Cache plays No. 7 Clinton at 7 p.m. Friday night.
