Area prep football playoff roundup and next week's schedule


Phoenix Staff Reports

Keys 42, Spiro 7

PARK HILL – Cody Cole rushed for 199 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries as Keys blasted Spiro at Cougar Stadium on Friday night.

"He ran tough," Keys coach Gary Willis said of Cole, who added two catches for 31 yards. "That's what we wanted him to do coming out, especially with this wind. We didn't want to pass the ball much tonight, and thankfully we didn't have to."

Keys quarterback Trevor Eubanks chipped in 104 yards on 19 rushes as the Cougars advanced to the second round of the Class 3A playoffs, where they'll take on Metro Christian.

Keys (7-3) scored on all five of its possessions in the first half, as the Cougars would eventually lead 33-0 at halftime.

Eubanks scored Keys' first two touchdowns of the night, one on a 3-yard run and the other on an 11-yard scamper. Cole followed with 26-yard score of his own in the first quarter, and Eubanks added Keys' fourth touchdown on a 1-yard run midway through the second quarter.

Then, Eubanks and Cole connected for a 22-yard touchdown pass-and-catch to add to Spiro's misery before intermission.

Mistakes also killed Spiro. The Bulldogs turned the ball three times (all lost fumbles) and the Cougars capitalized every time.

The Cougars — after getting throttled in their last three games at home — finished the night with 319 rushing yards. Eubanks also added 59 yards through the air. Spiro's lone score — Trevon Mitchem's 10-yard pass to Knifeis Carter — came after it found itself down 40-0 in the fourth quarter.

D.C.-Lamont 60, Webbers Falls 24

WEBBERS FALLS —  The Warriors saw their season come to an end for the second straight year in the first round of the playoffs.

Webbers Falls (7-3) amassed  338 yards of offense but could not keep up with DC-L (8-3) which finished with 461 yards, 378 of which came on the ground. The Warriors also committed four turnovers.

“They are a well-balanced team,” said Webbers Falls coach Shawn Dismuke. “We just couldn’t keep up with them.

“It’s sad to see the season come up short of expectations.”



Wynnewood 67, Gore 15

WYNNEWOOD — Gore, finishing at 6-5 with back-to-back losses, struck first, but the No. 1 Class A Savages (10-0)  roared back and as expected, advanced to the second round.

Robert Clark’s pass to Logan Ohl covering 23 yards gave the Pirates an 8-0 lead with 8:30 on the opening quarter clock. Wynnewood tacked on 10 unanswered scores, three before the end of the period, and finished with 743 yards of offense to Gore’s 329.

Clark threw for 185 yards for the Pirates.



Stigler 55, Jay 28

STIGLER – The 3A-8 champion Panthers (9-2) put up a school-record 628 yards of offense in taking down Jay (7-4) in the 3A first-round contest.

Cade Shearwood was 9-of-12 for 252 yards and five touchdowns, three going to Colton Shearwood. Seth Sandlin, back at full health, had 10 carries for 150 yards  and three catches for 157 yards and two touchdowns, one of 80 yards and the other of 67.

Stigler had 390 yards of offense at the half.

“We can throw it well,” Stigler coach Chris RIsenhoover said. “It was one of those nights everything timed up really well. Cade did a good job putting the ball on his receivers. Jay was geared to stop our running attack. When we ran the play action, we hurt them.”

Christian Keith threw for another score and also ran 42 yards to paydirt.

Stigler hosts Berryhill in the second round of the playoffs next Friday night.
