Jaguars believe in themselves

MOORE — It was a game-changing play. With Westmoore trailing 6-0, Jhames West had driven his team down to Broken Arrow’s 2-yard line with just seconds left in first half.

Normally, coach Billy Langford would just run the ball behind his huge offensive line and pick up the two yards needed with ease. But this time he went away from his team’s bread and butter and called a pass play. It’s a call he most likely wants to take back.

The Tigers’ Ryan Alger intercepted West’s pass at the 1-yard line and returned it 99 yards for a touchdown. BA took a 13 -0 lead into halftime and the Jaguars were unable to make up the lost ground and fell 26-13.

“We still had chances in the second half,” Westmoore coach Billy Langford said. “Had it cut to seven. And just can’t quite get over the hump. Big challenge this week. We will see what happens.”

The loss dropped Westmoore (6-4) to third place in District 6A-2 and prevents them from hosting a first-round game in the upcoming playoffs. Instead, it will now travel to Tulsa on Friday to face No. 1 Union (8-2) at 7:30 p.m.

“I hope our guys understand that Jenks Union, Broken Arrow and Owasso are probably about the same,” Langford said. “I think all those teams are pretty much very comparable. Hope it will give ours guys confidence to go if we play a good, clean game, and make the makes we need to make and execute the right way, we will have a good chance to win.”

However, the road has not been kind to Westmoore this year. In four games away from Moore Stadium, the Jaguars have compiled a 2-2 record.

However, it’s two wins came against teams with a combined record of 7-13. Its losses were to No. 1 Jenks and No. 3 Broken Arrow.
