TULSA, Oklahoma – Booker T. Washington extended its winning streak to seven after a 66-0 win over the Will Rogers Ropers Friday night.

Class 5-A’s top ranked team led 52-0 at halftime and didn’t slow up in the third quarter. Backup quarterback Dalshawn McFayden juked a couple of Ropers, broke a few tackles and sprinted in for the Hornets’ eighth touchdown of the night.

Jermaine Williams capped the scoring with a short touchdown run late in the fourth quarter. The win makes nine in a row in district play for the Hornets dating back to last season.

Booker T. has shut out teams in five of their last six games.

“It’s a big win,” said quarterback Jordy Albert.

Rogers’ disappointing season hit a new low point against the Hornets. The 66-point loss was the team’s worst of the season and the worst since Booker T. beat them by the same score in 2008.

Booker T.’s 66 points are more than Rogers has score all year. The Ropers have only scored 60 points this season, but their offense is much improved from last year’s overall season point total (34).

The Ropers have allowed 40+ points in all but one game this season. They will finish their season next week at home against Hale.

The Hornets’ dominance against the Ropers continued. Coming into the night, BTW had outscored Rogers 237-13 in their past four meetings. The Hornets improved to 3-1 at home this season.

With the win, the Hornets secured themselves a shot at an outright district title with a win against McAlester next week. Both teams enter the game undefeated in district play.
