Postseason begins with a road trip for Jags

MOORE — Westmoore doesn’t have time to dwell on its regular season finale loss to Broken Arrow. It now has to hit the road and face Sand Springs in the first round of the 6A state playoffs.

The Sandites (6-4) and Westmoore (8-2) will kickoff at 7 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. All tickets are $5. It’s their first home playoffs game since 1997.

Sand Springs is coming off a 21-16 win against Enid Friday.

The Sandites will have to slow down the duo of quarterback Cody Hale and receiver Jacob Sigmon. Runningback Tre Betts also figures to be a factor in the balanced offensive attack.

Despite only two defeats, the Jaguars have had their share of problems coming down the stretch. Injuries to the offensive line as has slowed down the potent offense. Both the run game and passing attack have seen a drop in production since earlier in the season.

“They just have to keep working and trying to get better every day with their technique,” Westmoore coach Billy Langford said. “We still have a bunch of new kids up there, first-year starters that are still trying to learn and trying to improve and get better. We’ve gotten better from day one and we’re still going to get better.”

Westmoore’s side of the playoff bracket features Jenks and Lawton High, the only two undefeated teams in 6A. Yet, the Jags are still confident they can make some noise in the postseason.

“We just need to execute the tiny things,” Dahu Green said. “The little tiny things. Holding that block for a half a second longer and stuff like that.”
