A weekly look inside high school football across the state


They said it

“I’m not worried about [the defense giving up over 40 points three straight games]. When you’re winning by 40 does it really matter that you gave up 40?” -- Locust Grove head coach Matt Hennesy after 80-41 win over Lincoln Christian (via Pryor Times).

Games of the week

- Sequoyah at Lincoln Christian: The Indians need to win by more than five points to make the 3A playoffs. Lincoln Christian needs to win to hold on to the No. 3 spot in District 3A-7.

- Broken Arrow at Westmoore: Neither can catch Jenks in 6A-2, but the winner gets a home playoff game next week as the district’s No. 2 seed.

- Bixby at Muskogee: The Roughers need a win and a Sapulpa loss to somehow squeak into the playoffs with three wins this season.

- East Central at Pryor: The Tigers are hurting after Collinsville handed them a one-point loss and injured quarterback Brennon Barth along the way. Pryor, though, can still win the 5A-4 title with a win and a Collinsville loss at Tahlequah.

- Lawton MacArthur at Ardmore: Double-edged sword for MacArthur. A win means a 5A-1 crown; a loss means slipping to third and playing Carl Albert in the first round of the playoffs.

- McAlester at Memorial: If both offenses get going in this one, they could combine to score more than 100 points.

- Fort Gibson at Sallisaw: The loser of this one likely plays Wagoner in the first round of the playoffs. So, that’s plenty to play for right there.

- Douglass at Ada: The 4A-2 title is on the line in this one.

- Berryhill at Metro Christian: The 3A-5 title is up for grabs between two clubs that have only given up a combined 143 points (in 18 games) this year.

- Spiro at Checotah: A Checotah win could creative a jumbled-up mess atop the 3A-8 standings.

- Tuttle at Blanchard: Blanchard had a bye in Week 9 to prepare for the 3A-1 showdown.

- Salina at Kansas: With a win, Salina finishes second in 2A-8. A loss for the Wildcats could send them to fourth place and a first-round playoff matchup with Adair.

- Kiefer at Morrison: Kiefer prevailed over Morrison and claimed the District A-7 crown last season. Now Morrison gets a chance to return the favor.
