Week three of high school playoffs kicks off Friday night, and a couple of former champs, and defending champs are looking to go all the way.

The Trojans won by 17, 29-12.
7th ranked Muskogee has advanced in the playoffs starting with an upset of the defending 6A champs, Union. The Redskins missed a field goal in the closing seconds that would have won them the game. Muskogee squeaked by round one with a 20-18 win.
The quarterfinals weren't as close; Muskogee's defense was too much for Norman North. The Timberwolves line couldn't protect the QB; he was sacked 7 times. Muskogee won by 28, 38-10.
