Velma-Alma Comets (10-0) vs. Okeene Whippets (10-1)
The Velma-Alma Comets (10-0) and the Okeene Whippets (10-1) meet in the second round this Friday. This game is going to come down to Comets’ shut-out happy defense and the explosive Whippets offense. Velma-Alma shut out six of their 11 opponents, including a 34-0 victory over Sayre in the first round. The D held the Eagles to only 84 total yards. While the defense excelled against Sayre, the offense struggled at times. If the Whippets find how to exploit those moments, they can capitalize on offense. The Comets’ quarterback, Dillon Morgan, connected on only five of his nine passes, throwing two interceptions. Velma-Alma also gave up a significant amount of yards with penalties. They’ll have to clean up their play if they want to preserve field position against the Whippets. Okeene’s strength lies in their offense, led by Derrick Miles. The senior wide receiver posted three touchdowns for the Whippets in their first-round matchup against Oklahoma Bible Academy and rushed for 194 yards. The Comets will have to find a way to keep him shut down all four quarters.

Woodland Cougars (10-0) vs. Elmore City-Pernell (10-1)
Woodland (10-0) has remained undefeated in large part due to their defense. The Cougars will look to hold their round two opponents, Elmore City-Pernell, to the 7.8 points on average they’ve managed to hold the rest of their competition. It certainly will be no easy task though, as the Badgers (10-1) are on a roll after blanking Central Sallisaw in round one. ECP ended the game with just under 120 yards passing and rushed for 264 yards. The Woodland’s defense, though, may shine if they can pounce on the weaker point of the Badgers’ first playoff game -- turnovers. Elmore City-Pernell had three turnovers by the end of the game, which could easily result in points for the top-ranked Cougars, whose offense posted 40 points in their round one shutout of Porter.

Ringling Blue Devils (8-2) vs. Cashion Wildcats (10-1)
Ringling will travel to Cashion with the odds stacked against them, but if the Blue Devils can utilize all their strengths -- pull out all the tricks -- they may be able to produce the upset. The Wildcats (10-1) will be a huge opponent for Ringling, ranked at No. 2 in Class A. They’re only loss came at the hands of Watonga in week six. They’re quarterback, Jeremy Seaton, looks polished and precise and happens to be backed by one of the strongest O-lines in the class. Cashion also boasts Taylor Cochran, whose 216 yard night in round one last week provided the Wildcats with three touchdowns. In order for the Blue Devils to have a chance, they’ll have to come out early and come out focused. They took a dominating lead in their first round matchup against Apache. L.T. Pemberton finished the game with two touchdowns for Ringling (8-2) and rushed for 194 yards. They’re quarterback, Tyler Shores, used his quick feet to pick up an additional 33 yards for the Blue Devils.
