Around the state

(A glance around the state in Week 7)

- Locust Grove 42, Hilldale 41: Quarterback Chandler Puckett threw for 254 yards and four touchdowns while running for 187 yards and another touchdown, but it wasn’t enough in the Hornets’ second loss of the season. Cory Rhode ransacked Hilldale on the ground for 216 yards and four touchdowns on 27 carries.

- Booker T. Washington 36, Owasso 20: The Hornets struck first and scored 29 unanswered points to begin the game, which led to a 29-7 halftime advantage. Running back Deonta Owens collected 120 yards and three touchdowns for Booker T. Washington.

- Sapulpa 38, Muskogee 21: The Roughers turned the ball over four times en route to another district loss. Muskogee quarterback Quintahj Cherry passed for 258 yards and three scores, but Sapulpa quarterback Sam Gottsch and wide receiver Ben Johnson connected seven times for 176 yards.

- Jenks 24, Westmoore 0: The Trojans amped up their defense to limit Westmoore to 43 yards of total offense. With the win, the Trojans took full control in 6A-2 and now need wins over Muskogee and Bixby in the next two weeks to wrap up the district title.

- Collinsville 35, Coweta 28: The Tigers owned a 28-21 halftime lead, but 14 unanswered points by Collinsville in the third quarter proved to be the difference. Zane McElroy rushed for two touchdowns for Collinsville, including a 34-yard score in the second quarter.

- Pryor 35, Claremore 26: In a battle of the top two teams in 5A-4, the Tigers rode 222 yards and four touchdowns by quarterback Brennon Barth to a surprising victory. In all, Pryor rushed for 279 yards while limiting Claremore’s ground game to 69 yards.

- Shawnee 42, Bishop Kelley 10: John Jacobs scored three rushing touchdowns and threw for a touchdown as the Wolves moved solidly into the second spot in 5A-3 behind McAlester. Jacobs finished the game with 250 passing yards and 89 yards on the ground.

- Cascia Hall 27, Poteau 15: The Commandos scored the first 20 points of the game and held down Poteau long enough to hand the Pirates their first loss of the season. The result now means Cascia Hall, Poteau, Fort Gibson and Sallisaw are all tied for first place at 3-1 in 4A-4.

- Fort Gibson 34, Muldrow 0: The Tigers stymied Muldrow’s offense and limited the Bulldogs to 135 total yards. For Fort Gibson, quarterback J.R. Singleton had a team-high 85 rushing yards to go along with 225 yards through the air.

- Wagoner 42, Oologah 28: Lawrence Evitt piled up 137 yards on the ground, as the Bulldogs won the back-and-forth contest by outscoring Oologah 28-14 in the second half.

- Hollis 40, Thomas 15: The No. 1 team in Class A was upset by Hollis, which has now only allowed 28 points all season. Hollis now has the inside track to the District A-2 title.

- Colcord 27, Kansas 6: Brandon Harper amassed 165 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries for Colcord, which won the time of possession battle, 38 minutes to 10. Kansas was held in check and picked up only eight first downs in the game.
