Keys can’t keep up against Eagles

CLAREMORE — What a difference a year can make.

Last year, the Keys Cougars averaged almost two passing touchdowns per game. After a Week 1 31-10 loss to Claremore Sequoyah Friday night, they’re still waiting for their first, as senior quarterback Trevor Eubanks went 5 of 17 for 33 yards and threw three interceptions.

The Cougars’ lone touchdown came late in the fourth quarter, when sophomore back-up quarterback Riley Radomski ran for 50 yards.

Originally a defensive slugfest peppered with two lost fumbles, a Seth Alsenay sack and a handful of penalty flags, the only offensive score for either team in the first quarter was a J.J. Ozturk field goal late in the period, which gave the Cougars their only lead of the night.

On the ensuing kickoff, Claremore-Sequoyah’s Colton Graves scored on 95-yard return, putting the Eagles up for good.

After holding the Cougars to two first downs in the second and third quarters combined, Claremore Sequoyah’s offense took over late in the third quarter, driving into Keys’ territory and setting up a 37-yard field goal to open the fourth quarter. The Cougars gave up rushing touchdowns on the next two possessions en route to yielding 166 yards on the ground.

Keys (0-1) travels to Checotah (1-0) Friday. Checotah opened its season with a 19-7 home win over Morris Friday night.
