Warriors can sew up title with win



Injury report looking up for Tigers: Norman High must upset undefeated Lawton this week to make the playoffs, but there is some good news for the Tigers on the injury front.

Quarterback Jakcob Dean will start on Friday, as will running back Dupree Young. Neither are completely healthy, but both are well enough to return to the field and start for the Tigers.

Also working in NHS’ advantage is that Lawton quarterback Dallas Sealey may not start. The senior was injured last week and, with Lawton having already locked up the district championship, may not return until the playoffs.

North offense back on track: After scoring just 21 points in a loss to Putnam City North two weeks ago — Norman North’s lowest output of the season — the Timberwolves got back on track a week ago with 49 points against Moore.

It’s a good sign for North, which will host Lawton Eisenhower on Friday with the district title on the line. A win for North will guarantee the Timberwolves the title, while a loss could drop them as far as fourth.

Plenty on line for Royals’ season finale: Community Christian, a year away from officially joining the OSSAA, has suffered through a rough season. There is no postseason possible for the Royals, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing on the line in the season finale Friday at Lexington.

The Royals have a chance to pull to 5-5 with a win this week and avoid their first losing season in years. Lexington (5-4) has already locked up a playoff spot in Class 2A.
