MOORE — Drama.

It’s what sports fans crave. And this year’s high school football season has brought about as much drama as any in previous years.

While Norman High and Norman North took care of business and have secured a playoff spot, they just await their first round opponent.

That is not the case for they other 6A schools in the area who have postseason aspirations. Southmoore and Westmoore head into the final week of the regular season still not sure what the future holds for them.

The Jaguars (6-3, 4-2) clinched a playoff spot with its 56-0 win over Tulsa Edison on Friday. It’s tied with Putnam City for the No. 3 seed in District 6A-2. But both teams are only one game out of the No. 2 seed, where Broken Arrow resides.

Westmoore and BA will conclude the regular season against each other Friday in Broken Arrow. The Jaguars can finish anywhere from No. 2 to No. 4 in the district.

Heading into last week, Southmoore (6-3, 3-3) and Mustang were tied for fifth place in District 6A-4. They both trailed Edmond Memorial and Lawton High by one game. However, Mustang beat Lawton and Memorial lost to Santa Fe to make it a four-way tie with one game left in the season. Only two of them will advance to the postseason.

The SaberCats and Edmond Memorial are the odd teams out right now. Even though Southmoore lost to the Bulldogs, it sits at No. 5 due to points.

No matter what scenario, Southmoore has to win Friday in order to make it into the postseason. The rest of it is out of its hands.

“All we can do is execute and do what we can do to get that spot,” Southmoore senior Jonathan Martin said. “If we fall short, we fall short. But we can do everything in our own power to help us secure that spot.”
