High school football: Noble beats Altus for first time

Noble beat Altus for the first time in history Friday night. 

The Bears won 40-17. Noble sits atop the District 5A-1 standings at 3-0 in the district and 5-1 overall. Noble is now 1-5 against Altus.

Noble jumped off to a quick lead, scoring 14 unanswered points in the first quarter. Altus (3-3, 1-2) bounced back in the second quarter, and Noble went into halftime with a 20-17 lead. In the second half, the Noble defense didn't allow a Altus to score again.

The Bears' defense was led by Gavin Yeager who had 10 tackles and two sacks for Noble and returned a fumble for a touchdown.

Noble will look to continue its district domination Thursday as it takes on Western Heights (3-3, 0-3).
