#1 Charles Page (2-1, 0-1) District 1
#5 Bartlesville (4-0, 1-0) District 1
The Sandites were on fire in the first three games of the season, but were no match for their district-opening matchup against Bartlesville. In years past, the Sandites have lost games due to sloppy mistakes and inconsistency. This was not one of those games. CPHS gave a solid performance on all fronts that would have been a beat down on any other team. Bartlesville was reported to have the best offense in the state going into the game; the Sandites are known to have the best defense. The Bruin defense, however, was grossly underestimated, putting up major stops against the Sandites through the whole game and held them to only 7 first downs.
My pick was CPHS 46, BHS 35.
The final score was BHS 24, CPHS 7.
#2 Bixby (3-1, 1-0) District 1
#10 Claremore (2-2, 0-1) District 1
Bixby has been the team to beat this season, and it looked like Claremore might actually pull it off. The Spartans were without their star running back, Nic Roller, and leading receiver, Cade Cabbiness. The Red Zebras not only kept neck-and-neck with the defending state champions, but even lead 24-21 midway through the third, before the Spartans found their mojo and scored 23 unanswered points to end the game.
My pick was Bixby 52, Claremore 3.
The final score was Bixby 47, Claremore 27.
#3 Booker T Washington (3-0, 1-0) District 1
#9 Ponca City (1-2, 0-1) District 1
The BTW Hornets rained hellfire down on the Wildcats, ruining their homecoming and bringing a total slaughter. The home team managed only nine first downs for one touchdown, while their visitors accumulated nearly 500 yards of total offense for their best score of the season.
My pick was BTW 42, Ponca 13.
The final score was BTW 68, Ponca 7.
#4 Midwest City (3-1, 1-0) District 2
#14 Eisenhower (0-4, 0-1) District 2
The MWC Bombers easily dominated Lawton Ike, taking a 22-0 lead before the game was stalled for an hour due to lightening. It's unfortunate for the Eagles that the game wasn't cancelled all-together.
My pick was MWC 28, Ike 6.
The final score was MWC 47, Ike 8.
#6 Choctaw (3-1, 1-0) District 2
#12 Enid (0-4, 0-0) District 2
Enid fared better than expected against the Chcotaw Yellowjackets than I expected them to, but were still unable to break their season-long losing streak. Darian Groins threw for three touchdowns and at one point closed the gap to 23-21 before the visitors pulled away for the win.
My pick was Choctaw 38, Enid 12.
The final score was Choctaw 37, Enid 28.
#7 Muskogee (1-3, 1-0) District 1
#13 Sapulpa (1-2, 0-1) District 1
The Rougers finally registered their first win of the season in a district opener at Sapulpa's homecoming. Sapulpan Senior Tom Schadel suffered a broken leg that will sideline him for the season, along with Trey Bilby who broke his in week 1. The Chieftains scored first on a 24 yard run by Dae Williams, but Muskogee returned 34 straight points before Williams found the endzone again.
My pick was Muskogee 35, Sapulpa 12.
The final score was Muskogee 41, Sapulpa 29.
#8 Putnam City West (1-3, 0-1) District 2
#11 Lawton (2-1, 1-0) District 2
PCW has been on the rebound as a team from previous awful years, and managed to stay neck and neck with the Wolverines in a first quarter shootout, but after Lawton's Levi Cain picked off a pass from Trey Gooch, there was no stopping them from reasserting themselves as a dominant power in District 2 after a rocky start to the season.
My pick was PCW 31, Lawton 28.
The final score was Lawton 57, PCW 20.
#15 Stillwater (1-3, 0-0) District 2
Stillwater was the only team not to start distrcit play this week, instead taking on U.S. Grant for Homecoming. Both teams entered the game win-less, but Stillwater asserted themselves as the dominant force early on and hopes to ride that momentum into district play next week.
My pick was Stillwater 29, Grant 14.
The final score was Stillwater 49, Grant 6.
