Oklahoma high school football: Oklahoma Christian Academy overcomes slow start, tops Hinton

Oklahoma Christian Academy had an old-school matchup Friday against Hinton.

Both teams run the triple-option flexbone offense and rarely pass.

After a slow start, OCA ran its offense to perfection in the second half and played lockdown defense to earn an 18-10 home win in Edmond.

The Eagles (1-3, 1-0 District A-3) trailed 10-0 at halftime but bounced back after the break, running for three scores. Antone Prince led the team with two touchdowns.

The victory against Hinton (1-3, 0-1) gives OCA some confidence as it prepares for Friday’s game at second-ranked Cashion (5-0, 1-0).

“We’re super young,” OCA coach Grey Powell said. “We will return 10 starters from tonight next year on offense. We only had one senior on the field.”
