Week 10 area recaps
- Collinsville 33, Tahlequah 23: Brandon Conrad scored on a 12-yard run with 3:55 left to get Tahlequah within 26-23. However, Collinsville answered 14 seconds later on Zane McElroy’s 68-yard touchdown pass to Keenan Hamilton to put the game away. McElroy ran for 127 yards and Ryan Haymaker rushed for 112 yards for the Cardinals.
- Lincoln Christian 35, Sequoyah 14: The Bulldogs scored the first 21 points of the game and left little doubt about Sequoyah’s playoff prognosis early on. The Indians were within 28-14 with 9:32 left in the third quarter, but Cody Hooper’s 80-yard kickoff return would be the final points of the night for Sequoyah. Lincoln Christian’s offense torched Sequoyah in every facet of the game: Micah Wilson passed for four touchdowns, Justin Flewellen rushed for 127 yards and wide receivers, Tim Schwoegler and Alec Davidson, had 126 and 109 yards receiving, respectively.
- Locust Grove 54, Keys 24: Breezing to its 10th win of the season, Locust Grove had the game put away by halftime with a score of 54-8.
- Ketchum 21, Hulbert 20: The Riders led 20-7 in the third quarter, but Ketchum scored the final 14 points of the game. The Hulbert coaching staff failed to report any statistics or any additional details of the game.

Games of the week
- Booker T. Washington at Broken Arrow: The winner here has a solid chance of meeting up with Union in the semifinals.
- Skiatook at Pryor: A come-from-behind victory over Bishop Kelley propelled Skiatook into the playoffs, and now the Bulldogs get to face Brennon Barth and Pryor’s high-powered running game.
- Del City at Carl Albert: Del City dealt Lawton MacArthur its only loss in district play, but the Eagles slipped all the way to third in 5A-1. Now tough first-round test awaits in at Carl Albert, which is roughly seven miles from Del City High School.
- Bishop McGuinness at Ardmore: McGuinness’ only two losses in district play were to Guthrie and Carl Albert, and Irish get a Ardmore team that lost to MacArthur last week.
- Fort Gibson at Wagoner: In 2011, Wagoner won the Class 4A state championship. That year the Bulldogs started the playoffs with a win over Fort Gibson in the first round. That’s a good omen.
- Sallisaw at Oologah: Sallisaw’s only two losses were to Greenwood (Ark.) and Poteau (4A-4 champion). Oologah’s three losses were to 4A No. 2 Wagoner and two 5A teams (Claremore and Collinsville). Basically, one solid team will have to bow out of the playoffs after only one game.
- Lincoln Christian at Stigler: Is three-headed monster of Micah Wilson, Justin Flewellen and Tim Schwoegler enough to get the Bulldogs past Stigler?
- Claremore-Sequoyah at Beggs: Daniel Moniz has returned as Claremore-Sequoyah’s quarterback, but now the Eagles will have to deal with Beggs’ pair of 1,000-yard rushers, Kerry Daniels and Lane Bouse.
- Cushing at Jones: The Tigers have suffered back-to-back losses and now have to venture out onto the road for the playoffs. The key will be getting Gage Stallworth back in high gear.
- Colcord at Nowata: The Ironmen’s offense has been in full throttle lately, but Colcord’s defense is allowing an average of 10 points a game.
