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.”
