  • DOUBLE COVERAGE

    The Bombers started the game with a force. Running backs RJ Goodman and Tre’jon Sherffield seemed to have their way running the ball early on, picking up several first downs.

    Although the Bombers got close several times, they failed to score early on.

  • DOUBLE COVERAGE

    “They whipped us.”

    That’s all Carl Albert coach Gary Rose had to say about his team’s 18-0 loss to cross-town rival Midwest City last Friday night at Jim Harris Stadium, and frankly, that’s all there really was to say.

  • Del City was outplayed by Lawton Eisenhower (Ike) to the tune of a 40-13 loss in Friday night’s game.

    Down 20 points at the half, due largely to a slow start and repeated turnovers, Del City finally scored on their second run of the second half and held their own from then on out. It was, however, too-little-too-late and Del City took their first loss of the season.

     
  • After a shaky start, the Choctaw Yellowjackets found their rhythm Friday night against the Putnam City Pirates, running away with the win, 34-3. Even after their victory, Choctaw Head Coach Todd Dilbeck was looking ahead for ways to keep the momentum going.
