Oklahoma high school football: Friday night takeaways
Here are some highlights and observations from The Oklahoman's high school sports reporters about the games they covered Friday night.
It wasn't just Carl Albert quarterback Ben Harris who had an impressive performance in the Titans' 56-35 win against McGuinness. Junior running back Kentrell Bizzell had 12 carries for 160 yards and three touchdowns. His longest touchdown run was for 49 yards.
Not to be overlooked
McGuinness' Cole Limber played one of his best games of the season. He opened the game with a 67-yard touchdown catch and run. He finished with five catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns. He also grabbed an interception in the first half.
Washington defense dominant in victory
Washington allowed just 284 yards in its 37-8 win at Community Christian. The Warriors also scored two defensive touchdowns. Kobe Scott returned an interception 58 yards for a score, and Kelton Schultz picked up a fumble and ran 7 yards for another.
Wilk returns for Washington
Washington's Emitt Wilk ran for two touchdowns in the first half against CCS. He had been out since sustaining an injury against Lindsay on Sept. 11. Wilk was the starting quarterback at the beginning of the season, but Jaxon Hendrix got the start on Friday. Wilk still made an impact as he played quarterback and wide receiver.
No mistakes for Midwest City
Midwest City played a clean game in its 19-10 win over Del City. Despite controlling the ball most of the game, the Bombers finished with zero turnovers. They also had only three penalties for a combined 15 yards to Del City’s 10 for 45 yards.
