Round one of Class C was full of blowouts; seven of the eight games decided by 20 or more points, but when the highest of the high-powered offenses come together the scores should be higher and the contests should be tighter.
Seiling Wildcats (10-1) at Waynoka Railroaders (8-2)
Neither of these teams had any trouble in the first round of the playoffs. Seiling beat Sasakwa 51-0 and Waynoka cruised by Temple 48-14, the top-seed from District C-2.
It’s a classing matchup of high-scoring offense and shut down defense when the Wildcats visit the Railroaders. Seiling is scoring more than 49 points per game, while Waynoka is holding opponents to 15 points per contest. Something has to give Friday night in Waynoka.
Deer Creek-Lamont Eagles (9-2) at Shattuck Indians (11-0)
The Indians started their run for an eighth straight Gold Ball with a convincing 26-0 win over Thackerville, but it cost Shattuck their second quarterback this season due to injury. Earlier this season Shattuck was able to set the all-time 8-man football win streak, and doesn’t plan to end that streak any time soon.
Deer Creek-Lamont dominated Midway 42-20, and that has been its M.O. all season. The Eagles have averaged more than 47 points per game, easily one of the top offenses in the class, taking on a defense that has held opponents to single digits in six contests this season.
Forgan Bulldogs (7-4) at Covington-Douglas Wildcats (7-4)
Covington-Douglas is riding high after their round one upset over top-seeded Maud 34-14, while Forgan cruised to victory over Victory Life Academy, 46-0.
It’s another matchup of offense against defense in Class C. Forgan held opponents to 17 points per game, while Covington-Douglas averaged over 50 points during its current four-game win streak.
The winner of this game catches a tough matchup, playing the winner of Waynoka-Seiling.
Tipton Tigers (9-2) at Timberlake Tigers (11-0)
Timberlake continued its path of domination with a 59-0 drubbing of Claremore-Christian, while Tipton just barely got by Boise City 30-22.
Timberlake is not only putting up crazy offensive numbers, it is keeping opponents from getting on the scoreboard themselves, holding opponents to just over a touchdown per game.
Tipton is averaging 37.6 points per game offensively, but they need to play mistake free football if they want to derail the Timberlake train.
