MIDWEST CITY — The Norman North first-teamers likely didn't need a shower before picking up their dates after Friday night's demolition of Midwest City.

North seemingly walked its way to five first-quarter touchdowns en route to a historic 66-27 Class 6A football win over a Bomber team that offered little resistance in the first half. Midwest City's proud football tradition took two punches to the jaw at Rose Field — the Bombers had a 37-game district win streak snapped, and the 66 points were the most any Midwest City team has allowed in history.

The 1973 Midwest City team surrendered 55 points to Tulsa Washington.

Norman North (3-1 overall, 1-0 district) scored on the first play from scrimmage on Jordan Evans' 63-yard touchdown run. Two more TD runs from Evans and touchdown passes from Peyton Gavras to Jake Higginbotham and Payton Prince rounded out a 35-0 first quarter. Running back Bryan Payne added a 20-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and Midwest City was staring at 0-4 and 0-1 records in the face before halftime.

Midwest City, off to its worst start to a season since 1998, looked demoralized early in the game. Botched snaps to the punter, fumbles and interceptions gave Norman North short fields.

The Bombers rallied a bit, ending the second quarter with touchdown runs from Kameron Martin and Qualan Johnson. But Norman North quickly answered with 24 straight points.

Johnson added a 20-yard TD run and a 60-yard run-and-catch for a touchdown late in the game against Norman North reserves.
