Jaguars wants to turn potential into reality against Broken Arrow

Westmoore's Garrett King runs with the ball during the Jaguars' game against Bixby in Week 4 at Moore Stadium.

EDMOND — Westmoore will be tested six days from today when Broken Arrow visits Moore Stadium.

Three weeks after that, it should happen again when Jenks comes calling.

There are other games, too, of course, yet those don't look like the real challenges.

Those games look like they might be more like what happened Friday night at Wolves Stadium, where Edmond Memorial was no challenge at all.

Though the Bulldogs hit a couple big plays after the half — “Twos can’t get in their and do bad, man,” Westmoore coach Lorenzo Williams complained of Memorial’s 21-point third quarter — it was nonetheless another example of the Jaguars’ west-wide dominance.

Westmoore prevailed 55-28 and it was as though it could do whatever it wanted offensively.

Yet again, Jaguar running back Braxton George took the first play from scrimmage into the end zone.

This time it was just a 37-yard burst, paving the way for a 10-carry, 143-yard, three-touchdown night.

Meanwhile, his quarterback, Braxton Bohrofen might have been even more prolific, not only completing 11 of 18 passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns, but catching one, too, delivered by younger brother Jace Bohrofen on the back end of a pitch-reverse-pass that went 45 yards to paydirt.

“We’ve been working on that play since the Moore War,” Williams said. “It’s kind of like a set-up for some things we’re going to do down the road.”

Only the Jaguars’ first District 6AI-1 contest of the season, they remained unebeaten, moving to 5-0. Memorial, which played a Zero Week game against Ponca City, fell to 1-5 and 0-2, dropping its fifth straight contest.

“It was a balanced attack tonight,” Braxton Bohrofen said.

That it was.

In all, Westmoore ran for 301 yards and three scores and and threw for 262 and four.

Even special teams got into the act, with kicker Ryan Knight making all seven of his extra points as well as field goals from 40 and 33 yards.

As Westmoore looks forward, knowing it can attack on the ground and through the air has to be a good feeling.

The plan may not have been to be so balanced Friday, but that’s what happened.

“It depends on the situation. We’ve got a lot of weapons,” Williams said. “When it comes down to it, if we need to run the ball, we can do that and if we need to throw it, we can do that.”

In addition to the starting quarterback, Damoriea Vick, James Palmer and Jacob Clark each caught a touchdown pass for the Jaguars.

Memorial finished with 226 passing yards and 91 running.

Quarterback Blake Burgess was productive but not efficient, completing just 13 of 31 attempts.

Brendan Mitchell caught two for scores and four overall for 85 yards.

That was about it for the Bulldogs

Next week, it’s Broken Arrow at Moore Stadium.

“We’re excited to play an east-side team,” Braxton Bohrofen said.

The Jags have certainly put themselves in a fine position.
