Hartshorne 42, Heavener 6
Another week, another class 3A football team dominated by the Hartshorne Miners. Combining an aggressive defense and a multifaceted offense, the Miners easily handled Heavener at home Friday.
“We play attack-style defense so it’s hard to get in rhythm against us,” Hartshorne coach Bill Williams said.
After the Miners’ defense held Heavener to a three-and-out to start the game, Williams said, the Miners orchestrated a 19-play drive that chewed up more than nine minutes of the first quarter and ended in a 3-yard touchdown run by LaMarcus Morris.
Morris added another rushing touchdown later in the game, and fellow running back Dallas Herring ran in two as well. Herring battled ankle issues all of last season, but this season he’s back to full health, according to his coach.
“Dallas played the best game I’ve ever seen him play,” Williams said. “He really ran well.”
Starting at quarterback for the second week, Dylan Pingleton completed touchdown passes to Tyler Lindley and Troy Ray. Heavener’s only touchdown didn’t come until Hartshorne was already leading 42-0 and had subbed in its second stringers.
Quinton 29, Wilburton 6
Though just a two-point game at halftime, Quinton and Wilburton went in opposite directions in the second quarter. Quinton coach Jeremy Reeder said the Savages started “eliminating mistakes,” while Wilburton coach Frank Marsaln said the Diggers started making them.
“We had the ball five times inside the 20, and we self-destructed four times and they made one good play on us,” Marsaln said.
“When you’re trying to rebuild and get going, some things just take a little longer than others.”
Quinton’s Peyton Knell opened the second half with an approximately 65-yard touchdown pass to Quintin Needham that made it 14-6 Quinton The Savages then recovered a fumble, and two plays later Preston Lemons rushed 20 yards for a touchdown.
