Facing best in state sets Jags up for future



When it was announced last year that Westmoore would be in the district with Jenks and Broken Arrow on the east side, Langford looked at it as an opportunity.

“I don’t think our groups are going to be intimidated by them,” Langford said. “That’s a big part of it. Usually when Jenks and Union and Broken Arrow walk off the bus, they have a 7- to 10-point lead on you just because of the intimidation factor. I don’t think that is going to happen with our guys — hopefully, never.”

Semifinals set: After two weeks of home playoff games, Norman North fans will face a drive to watch their team face off against Owasso in the state semifinals.

The North-Owasso game will be played on Friday at Tulsa Union. The Class 6A semifinal and championship games are played at neutral sites, alternating between east- and west-side schools every year.

The other semifinal game, Tulsa Union-Jenks, will be played at Broken Arrow High School. The title game will be played at Oklahoma State University.

Wild play spurs key score: Owasso earned its 35-15 victory over Norman High on Friday night by making more big plays than the Tigers. But it was a wacky, rather than well-executed play, that set up the Rams’ second score of the game.

The play came in the second quarter with Owasso already up 7-0. On third down, quarterback Jaylen Lowe dropped back and threw a bullet across the middle of the field to Jake Burd. Burd bobbled the ball and watched it slip out of his hands toward the ground. But the ball happened to bounce off the back of his cleat and ricochet straight up and right back into his hands.

A few plays later Cole Neph caught a 13-yard pass from Lowe to put Owasso up 14-0.
