OKLAHOMA CITY -- Douglass jumped out to an early lead and did not look back, as the Trojans pulled arguably the biggest upset of the first round with a 14-0 victory over defending champion Glenpool.

“We came out and executed our game plan,” Trojans coach Willis Alexander said. “Our kids stepped up to the challenge. We just asked them to do their job. If you have to change what you’ve been doing at this time then you’re not that good.”

The Trojans handed the Warriors their first shutout since September of 2007. But it was not just the Douglass defense that contributed to the shocker.

“Great defensive effort by everybody,” Trojans coach Willis Alexander said. “Not only by the defense but the offense too, they were able to sustain drives and keep [Glenpool] off the field.”

The Trojans will face Wagoner in the second round.
