High school football: Southmoore gets first win of season

Southmoore quarterback Jaedyn Scott scored three touchdowns to help the Sabercats win their first game of the season Friday.

Southmoore won 24-17 at Edmond North behind 193 total yards and the three Scott touchdowns. Scott, a senior who moved back to quarterback after beginning the year at wide receiver, was pivotal with his leadership in the win on a blustery night, coach Jeremy Stark said.

"He wasn't getting the ball enough at wide receiver," Stark said. "We knew the ball needed to be in his hands, and we thought putting him at quarterback was the best way to do it."

Only two seniors started on each side of the ball for Southmoore (1-7, 1-4 District 6A-I-2). Stark praised the effort of his underclassmen, saying they have kept striving even with the difficult start.

Southmoore hosts Tulsa Union (4-4, 3-2) on Thursday before heading to Norman North (1-7, 1-4) for its season finale in Week 10.
