OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma -- Expectations vary from school to school. At Millwood High School winning is expected and usually accomplished. On Saturday, Millwood (11-2) will meet Kingfisher (11-2) in the 2A semifinals. The Falcons will try to win their second Gold Ball in the last four years. Millwood took home the big prize in 2006.

Title talk for the Falcons started back in the summer.

"It's one of those things every year; we want to end with a Gold Ball," head coach Tony Henry said.

The Millwood offense is led by junior quarterback Kevonte Richardson. Experience is on his side, as he has started more than 30 games for the Falcons. Richardson and the Falcons are averaging more than 36 points a game this season.

Both schools come into their playoff matchup red-hot, each riding an eight game winning streak. Millwood and Kingfisher collide on Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at Yukon High School.
