Week 8 area recaps

- Pryor 41, Tahlequah 15:
Pryor continued its District 5A-4 dominance by piling up 355 rushing yards on 44 carries. Pryor quarterback Brennon Barth logged 193 yards and three touchdowns, and running back Matt McGouldrick added 148 yards and two touchdowns to coast at Doc Wadley Stadium. For Tahlequah, its first points came on a safety in the fourth quarter, when it was already behind 28-0.

- Jay 48, Sequoyah 14: The Bulldogs hammered away at Sequoyah's defense, which had been good against three subpar opponents in the weeks leading up to the District 3A-7 showdown. Jay logged 401 yards on offense, including 105 by running back Christian Duffield. Jay led 25-14 at halftime and put the game away with a 16-0 third period.

- Hilldale 54, Keys 20: The Hornets raced out to a 48-0 halftime lead. Hilldale quarterback Chandler Puckett completed seven of eight passes for 123 yards and a touchdown, which went to Bradley Campbell, who had five catches for 77 yards.

- Hulbert 19, Quapaw 6: The Riders' defense stifled Quapaw all night, holding the Wildcats to 98 yards of total offense. Hulbert went up 12-0 in the third quarter and never looked back. The Riders logged 319 rushing yards in the game.



Players of the week

- Justin Owens (Hulbert):
The Riders' quarterback had 103 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.

- Anthony Howard (Hulbert): Leading Hulbert on offense, Howard ran for a game-high 187 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries against Quapaw.

- Seth Fritts (Keys): Fritts, filling in for running back Dakota Matlock, logged 129 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.

- Nick Kingfisher (Sequoyah): Kingfisher was stellar on special teams for the Indians, logging an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. He had 125 yards on four kickoff returns, and he also punted four times for an average of 41.8 yards, including one inside the 20-yard line. He also added a 10-yard touchdown run on offense.

- Kourt McMillan (Tahlequah): The Tigers' wide receiver had 10 catches for 83 yards.

- Colton Wright (Tahlequah): Wright was Tahlequah's leader on offense and defense. He had 74 rushing yards and two catches on offense, while logging seven tackles, one interception and one fumble caused on defense.



Around the state

- Jenks 56, Muskogee 14:
The Roughers scored 14 of the final 21 points in the game. Too bad Jenks scored the first 49. Jenks tailback Cameron Booty had 113 yards and three touchdowns on 11 carries.

- Westmoore 26, Sapulpa 23: Kieron Hardrick scored on a 12-yard run on Westmoore's first play of overtime to propel the Jaguars past Sapulpa. The Chieftains were limited to a 20-yard field goal by Cameron Mortazavi on their possession in overtime.

- Central 39, Claremore 21: D'Angelo Brewer, a Tulsa commit, put on a show for Central, rushing for 226 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries while also recording a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown late in the game. The Braves rushed for 343 yards, including 88 by running back D.J. Daniels.

- Collinsville 55, East Central 34: Quarterback Zane McElroy had 308 yards and six touchdowns for Collinsville, who had 513 total yards on offense. Collinsville moved into second place in District 5A-4 by scoring 27 of the game's final 40 points.

- Guthrie 28, Deer Creek 3: Senior running back Kai Callins had 129 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries for Guthrie, who can wrap up the 5A-2 title this week with a win over Bishop McGuinness.

- McAlester 38, Bishop Kelley 10: Caden Pratt had 189 yards passing and 92 rushing yards while filling in at quarterback for the Buffaloes, who didn't allow Bishop Kelley to score a touchdown until the fourth quarter. McAlester running back Jarome Smith added 151 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries.

- Memorial 25, Skiatook 23: Mike'Quan Deane had 101 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries, while also logging a 27-yard touchdown reception as the Chargers moved closer to a postseason spot.

- Cascia Hall 34, Fort Gibson 28: Fort Gibson failed to score in overtime when quarterback J.R. Singleton was picked off by Cascia Hall's Reece Lambert. Cascia Hall then scored on Cooper Bethel's 6-yard touchdown run to prevail in overtime.

- Wagoner 28, Cleveland 21: Roman Rodriguez scored on a 2-yard run with 41 seconds left to keep the Bulldogs unbeaten. Wagoner running back Lawrence Evitt finished with 202 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries.



They said it

“They really deserve a little success because of all their hard work. I’m happy for them and hopefully we’ll continue trying to get better.” — Hulbert head coach Gary Riley after his team’s win over Quapaw.



Games of the week

- Collinsville at Pryor: The District 5A-4 crown is on the line in this one. The Tigers can clinch the title with a win. But if Collinsville wins, things become a huge mess in the district race.

- Hilldale at Sequoyah: The Indians’ playoff chances are now in peril after the lopsided loss at Jay. A win by Sequoyah would make the postseason a much more obtainable aspiration.

- Booker T. Washington at Union: Only the Hornets stand between the Redskins and a 6A-1 title. Based on Week 10 opponents, the winner here should lock up the district championship.

- Bishop Kelley at Memorial: The Comets looked to be a solid playoff lock a couple of weeks ago. Now, if Bishop Kelley loses this one and loses in Week 10, basketball season will start sooner than expected. Look for this one to be a shootout.

- Claremore-Sequoyah at Metro Christian: The Patriots have give up 17 points all season. Good luck, Claremore-Sequoyah.

- Cushing at Seminole: The winner will have the inside track to the 3A-2 title. Can the Chieftains’ defense shut down Cushing’s star running back Gage Stallworth?

- Kingfisher at Newcastle: Neither team has lost in 3A-3 play. The winner will claim the league crown and feel much better as the playoffs approach.

- Lincoln Christian at Locust Grove: A win by Lincoln Christian solidifies its playoff position. A loss sets up a dicey matchup with Sequoyah in Week 10.

- Commerce at Colcord: A win by Commerce means a district championship in 2A-8.
