It was a game that Westmoore needed. And that is exactly how they played.

The Jaguars plastered Eisenhower 52-7 at Cameron Stadium Friday. The victory raised their record to 6-3 on the season and 4-2 in District 6A-2.

The win also secured their spot in the upcoming postseason. Regardless of what happens this week at Norman, the Jags are the No. 3 team out of the district.

It didn’t take long for Westmoore to let everyone know that they were not overlooking the struggling Eagles (2-7, 06). After the defense forced Ike to punt on its first possession, Dertaveus Hervey took the punt return back 34 yards for the game’s first touchdown. Only 1:38 had ticked off the clock.

The Jaguars forced a fumble on the next series. Craig Ralls scored three plays later to put Westmoore up 14-0.

That was pretty much the end of the game. As they racked up 38 more points, Westmoore could turn its attention to the Tigers this week.

NHS is coming off a devastating 28-23 defeat to Yukon.

Yukon got started quickly. In the first 7 1/2 minutes, the Millers scored twice — once on a 2-yard run by Joey Davidson and the other on a 36-yard pass from quarterback Clay Garrett to a wide-open Zach Harris.

NHS struck back in the second quarter. Kicker Chad Pullium hit a 37-yard field goal and Ade Okewole ended a nice Tiger drive with a 1-yard touchdown run right before the half.

NHS had another chance to get back in the game when, after another Yukon score, Alec Wilkenson caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Tiger quarterback Greg Perkins. But NHS couldn’t stop Yukon on third-and-long, then took a big 15-yard facemask penalty on another third down that would have forced the Millers to give the ball back with just over a minute remaining.

If Norman (3-6, 2-4) had won, they would have been playing this week for a spot in the postseason.

As it stands, the two squads that lost no games in the first nine weeks of the 2006 regular season and played for the district championship, are now regulated to second tier status for one week. District leaders No. 3 Midwest City and No. 4 Putnam City battle for the top spot Friday.

However, while this will be the Tigers’ last game of the season, while Westmoore will be playing next week.
