High school notebook: Anadarko knows rematch will be tougher

by Ed Godfrey and Ryan Aber and Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Published: November 28, 2012

After beating Clinton 28-21 on Oct. 5, Anadarko expects winning a second straight state championship to be even tougher in the rematch.

“That's going to be a good game,” Anadarko running back R.J. Sink said. “I'll tell you right now, I kind of think that they want some revenge.

“They're going to play us, like, 10 times harder. We know that, so we've got to step our game up and play harder too and get that state championship again.”

In the first meeting, Anadarko led 14-0 at halftime before holding off Clinton's comeback attempts. It was the first big hurdle Anadarko cleared this season.

“Clinton was a huge win,” Anadarko coach Kent Jackson said. “Before the season started, I thought that Weatherford and Clinton would probably beat us — just going off junior-high scores — and then maybe Chickasha.”

However, Anadarko won all three games and is currently on a 28-game winning streak.

Anadarko and Clinton meet at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium.


Cashion quarterback Ty Reasnor knows his grandparents will be in the stands for his game Saturday afternoon. And Kingfisher running back Landon Nault knows his grandparents will be at his game on Saturday night.

That means it's a busy day for Jim and Twilla Nusz.

Nault's mother and Reasnor's mother are sisters, and daughters of the Nuszes.

Nault and Reasnor are close, usually talking before and after football games. And their grandparents attend Cashion and Kingfisher games on a regular basis.

They got lucky with the Class A and 3A semifinal schedules this week. Cashion takes on Wynnewood at 1:30 p.m. Saturday in Norman, then Kingfisher faces Seminole at 7:30 Saturday night at Putnam City Stadium.
