GLENPOOL, Oklahoma – The Glenpool Warriors scored touchdowns on each of their first three possessions to put away the Claremore-Sequoyah Eagles, 47-21 Friday night. The offensive explosion comes one week after the Warriors were held scoreless against Cascia Hall.
Quarterback Connor Ferrell and wide receiver Auhsten Jones led the way for the Warriors on offense. The duo hooked up for Glenpool’s first two scores on the night. Ferrell found Jones in the corner of the endzone on 4th and goal from the 5-yard line in the first quarter to give Glenpool a 6-0 lead. They connected for a 25-yard score on the team’s next possession.
The rough start to the season continued for Claremore-Sequoyah. The Eagles finished 10-3 a year ago but has now lost its first three games to start the season.
The Eagles hurt themselves in the first quarter. In its first three possessions of the game, Sequoyah fumbled, was intercepted and fumbled again. Glenpool converted 21 points off those turnovers.
The Eagles had no answer for Ferrell running the football. The junior ran for two scores in the first 13 minutes.
Ferrell broke loose for a 29-yard touchdown on a 3rd and 15 on the team’s third possession. He followed that up with a 65-yard score on Glenpool’s opening drive in the second quarter. That score put the Warriors up 26-0.
Glenpool avoided getting shut out for the third time in four games dating back to last season. The Warriors were without their best player against the Eagles.
Defensive back and Oklahoma State commit Isaac Maselera cheered on his team from the sidelines with a boot on his right foot. The senior strained some ligaments in that foot in the Week 2 game against the Commandos. Maselera says he should be ready to go for the Warriors’ next game.
The Eagles’ worst season in recent memory was in 2004 when the team finished 6-6. With a 0-3 start, Claremore-Sequoyah will have a lot of catching up to do to avoid another .500 record.
Claremore-Sequoyah wraps up a 3-week road stretch in Week 4 against Inola. Glenpool will play a third consecutive home game next Friday against McLoud.
