SaberCats in the heat of a playoff race; all-staters named

MOORE — The Southmoore football team is in perfect position. After defeating Choctaw Friday 35-14, it now controls its own destiny.

Heading into Friday’s regular season finale at Mustang (5-4, 3-3), the SaberCats (6-3, 4-2) are in second place in District 6A-4. They are tied record wise with Edmond Memorial, but have the head to head win over them.

A win over the Bronchos would give Southmoore a home playoff game in the first round of the postseason, which starts next week. A loss could drop them to fourth or even out of the playoff race.

Southmoore has put itself in this position by turning itself into a ground attack offense. Against Choctaw it was Pierce Speed who did the brunt of the work. The senior carried the ball 29 times for 219 yards and a touchdown. As a team, the Cats racked up 348 yards on 47 carries.

Quarterback Conner Uselton was 8-for-15 for 80 yards and two scores. One of the TD passes went to Jalen Adams, who had five catches for 36 yards.

But Southmoore’s defense has always raised its level. Keaton Bell led the Cats with 14 tackles and one sack against CHS. Quindon Lewis and Corey Keys also reached doubled digits in tackles.

Southmoore and Mustang kick-off at 7 p.m. Friday at MHS.

Cross Country: The class 6A state cross country championships were held Saturday at Edmond Santa Fe. Norman North took the girls title while Jenks captured the boys championship.

The Westmoore girls took eighth place overall with 197 points. They were three points ahead of Broken Arrow.

The Jaguars were led by Ashtyn DeRoin, who ran the 3,200 meter course in 12:27 for a 25th place finish. Savannah Waddell, Elizabeth DiSalvatore and Elizabeth Redlinger all finished in the top 40 of the 107 person race.

On the boys side, Southmoore’s Gaven Kanske was the highest placing area runner. He completed the 5k in 16 minutes and 36 seconds, which was good enough for 16th place. He was 1:06 behind Union’s Ben Barrett, who won the individual title.
