Jaguars vs Trojans headline big week

MOORE — Week 7 is filled with a number of Class 6A clashes that could alter the playoff race and shake up the top 10.

The most closely-watched game will undoubtedly be Jenks at Westmoore, which will take plac at 7 p.m. Friday at Moore Stadium.

The Jaguars are coming off a nail-biting 16-14 win over Putnam City. It took a last second interception to preserve their unbeaten record.

Several coaches in the area believe Jenks’ team this season is the most talented the Trojans have fielded in years. With the major east-side schools already marked off the schedule, Westmoore is the biggest remaining obstacle in the regular season, and Westmoore has been tabbed as the West’s best chance to defeat Jenks before the postseason.

The other marquee game on the slate is Lawton-Edmond Santa Fe, one where the Wolverines will enjoy home-field advantage. Ranked No. 3 and No. 6 respectively in the American’s top 10, the clash of two high-power offenses features the only two west-side teams besides Westmoore widely expected to threaten the East’s top teams in the playoffs.

Norman High and Norman North both have huge games. The Tigers face a must-win against Southmoore if they want to make a playoff run, while the Timberwolves can take a huge step toward securing their second straight District 6A-3 title if they can defeat Edmond North.

Despite losing to Eisenhower last week, Moore is also sticking around the playoff hunt. With Yukon’s loss to Edmond North last week, the Lions can actually move a game up on Yukon and several other teams if they can defeat the Millers.

Area: There’s still no official word on the status of Norman North quarterback and Alabama commit David Cornwell, but in the meantime the Timberwolves are looking toward a future with junior John Kolar under center.
