Weatherford 28 El Reno 26
The Weatherford Eagles went on the road Friday night to face a much improved El Reno Indians squad. The game went back and forth throughout, and it wasn’t decided until the game’s final minute. Jr. Quarterback Stone Chism found the end zone with 29 seconds left for the game deciding Touchdown. Chism was fantastic all night, carrying the ball 22 times for 82 yards and all 4 Weatherford scores. Head Coach Reagan Roof was pleased, “Proud of the grit and guts. Gutsy win. Proud of the way we responded.” Weatherford improves to 2-1 with their final Non District game coming up at home Friday night against Elgin.
Canadian, TX 45 Elk City 19
A year ago these two teams played an OT thriller that Elk City won 37-36. Friday night wasn’t nearly as close. The Big Elks scored a Touchdown midway through the 2nd quarter to make the score 14-12. Canadian responded with 17 straight to make the halftime score 31-12. The Wildcats thwarted every Elk City advance in the second half that kept the Elks at bay. Sophomore RB Tucker Garza led Elk City with 105 yards on 7 carries. Jr. QB Catch Geno rushed for 43 yards and 2 TDs. Elk City Head Coach Zach Maynard’s still looking for more, “Lot to clean up. Still have guys that have to figure out the game speed. We’re still looking for leaders.” The loss drops Elk City to 2-1. Things don’t get any easier this week with 5A #1 Carl Albert coming to Big Elk Stadium.
Heritage Hall 50 Clinton 43
It was a shootout from the word go on Friday Night inside the historic Tornado Bowl in Clinton. Heritage Hall raced out to a 28-7 first half lead behind an amazing performance from OU Commit Andy Bass. Clinton didn’t give up. The Red Tornadoes put 21 unanswered on the board to tie it at 28 at the halftime break. Eventually in the second half the Chargers were just too much in a 50-43 win. Bass was awesome completing 15/20 passes for 365 yards and 5 TDs. He also ran 4 times for 109 yards and two more scores. Clinton welcomed Zaedon Collins back to the lineup in a big way. Collins toted the rock 29 times for 273 yards and 4 TDs. Kyntavion Hill chipped in with 85 yards on 12 carries with 2 scores. Coach Higbee was happy with the fight his team showed, “Major Improvement. Showed some fight and that shows character.” The Red Tornadoes fall to 1-2. They’ll get this week off before beginning district play in a couple weeks at home against John Marshall.
