In the battle for second, Ardmore finished first.
The Tigers controlled the lines of scrimmage, holding Duncan to one score in a 21-7 win at Noble Stadium on Friday. The victory was Ardmore’s fifth in a row and ensured the Tigers (6-3, 5-1 District 5A-2) the No. 2 spot in the district with one game to go.
Duncan fell to 5-4, 4-2 in district, an unsavory spot to be in as the Demons will likely face defending state champion Carl Albert in the first round of the playoffs. Duncan had a chance to cut the deficit to one score late in the fourth quarter, but Ardmore stuffed the Demons four times within the 2-yard line for a turnover on downs.
Seniors answered the call for the Tigers on Senior Night. Andra Brown rushed for 119 yards on 13 carries and Trey Cohee was 7-of-9 for 140 yards and three touchdowns (one passing, two rushing) for Ardmore. Elijah Cary kicked a 32-yard field goal in the second quarter to put the Tigers ahead for good at 9-7.
Carl Albert beat Deer Creek 31-7 Friday, setting up a battle for the No. 3 spot in District 5A-1. The winner of the Deer Creek-Ada game in week 10 comes to Noble Stadium for the first round of the playoffs on Nov. 12.
Plainview 27, Madill 24, 2OT
MADILL — Plainview overcame a 21-7 third quarter deficit as Blake Campo scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns, and two overtime field goals by Sam Waters turned out to be the difference as Plainview clinched the District 3A-2 championship on Friday night at Alumni Field.
Campo was a workhorse. The junior running back rushed 55 times for 276 yards — he also had a 20-yard reception in the first quarter and a 40-yard kickoff return in the third — and scored all three touchdowns for the Indians (6-3, 6-0 District 3A-2).
With the exception of three plays, the Plainview defense held Madill in check. Madill’s Caleb Muncrief scored two TDs — a 3-yard catch and a 66-yard run — and finished with 90 yards on seven carries. Spencer Bond had 12 rushes for 24 yards and completed 6-of-9 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown.
Ethen Hoedebeck caught a 73-yard touchdown pass from Bond in the second quarter to give Madill a 14-7 lead.
Lone Grove 48, Dickson 14
DICKSON — Lone Grove quarterback Jacob McClennahan rushed for 156 yards on just 10 carries and scored three touchdowns to help lead the Longhorns to victory over the Dickson Comets at Ernest Moore Field.
In addition to McClennahan’s rushing yardage, he was 4-of-11 through the air for 97 yards and two more touchdowns. Lone Grove tailback Dalton Keeton had 159 rushing yards on 23 carries and one touchdown.
Defensively, Lone Grove shut down the Comets’ offense completely. Dickson was held to just 20 net rushing yards on 23 carries and another 17 yards through the air for just 37 offensive yards and three first downs. Both of the Comets’ touchdowns were scored by their defense.
The Longhorns, who improved to 4-5 overall and 2-3 in District 3A-2, still have an outside shot to make the playoffs with a win against Purcell next week. Dickson fell to 1-8, 0-5.
Sulphur 49, Pauls Valley 6
SULPHUR — It was a rebound game for Sulphur against Pauls Valley, as the Bulldogs rolled up at 30-0 halftime lead en route to victory.
Sulphur (3-6, 2-3 District 3A-2) kept itself in the playoff race. If Lone Grove falls to Purcell next week or Sulphur wins against Dickson, the Bulldogs can wrap up the No. 4 spot in 3A-2.
Kingston 46, Marietta 20
MARIETTA — After two-and-a-half seasons of futility, Kingston is nearly playoff bound.
The Redskins scored a key win against Marietta on Friday. Kingston (3-6, 3-3 District 2A-4) has won three straight after starting the season 0-6.
Kingston led 30-14 at the break and picked up critical district points with the win by more than 15. The Redskins close with a non-district game against Plainview next week.
Marietta (4-5, 2-3) must win at Tishomingo in order to have a shot at the postseason. That would set off a three-way tie between Kingston, Marietta and Tish which would come down to district points for the No. 3 and 4 spots.
Tishomingo 33, Konawa 27
KONAWA — Tishomingo put itself in good position to make the playoffs out of District 2A-4 with a win Friday.
If the Indians (4-5, 3-2) beat Marietta, they’ll lock up the No. 3 seed. If they lose, the seedings come down to district points.
Ringling 28, Healdton 7
HEALDTON — Ringling scored 13 points in the fourth quarter as they pulled away from Healdton to clinch second place in District A-4.
Ringling (6-2, 5-1 District A-4) led 7-0 at halftime before Healdton tied it up midway through the third quarter. Ringling added a touchdown to take a 13-7 lead late in the third.
Healdton (6-3, 3-2) dropped to third in the district and will be on the road in the first round of the state playoffs, while Ringling earned a host spot. Velma-Alma is the district champion.
Fox 58, Macomb 0
MACOMB — Chris Spigner, Sean Newell and Dillon Langley each had two touchdowns, leading Fox to an easy win over Macomb.
Fox (7-2, 7-1 District B-2) had 306 yards of offense to Macomb’s 93, and the Foxes picked off two passes and recovered two fumbles.
Bryan Garza, Justin Cornelius and Taylor Townsend added scores for the Foxes, who are second in District B-2 behind Davenport.
Other scores: Wilson 49, Elmore City-Pernell 0; Southwest Christian Academy 48, Thackerville 20
