'Neighborhood battle' Friday for OCS, Heritage Hall
By Ray Martin
Friday night’s contest between Heritage Hall and Oklahoma Christian is more than just another game for both schools. Serious bragging rights are at stake.
Many players on both teams know each other well, and OCS’s head coach Tracy Holland left Heritage Hall three years ago to take over at OCS.
“It will be somewhat of a neighborhood battle,” Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert said. “These seniors know coach
Holland really well and many of these kids are friends.”
Heritage Hall is undefeated, and will look to avenge last year’s 12-6 loss to the Saints.
“They (OCS) throw the ball really well,” Bogert said. “It is something we don’t see all the time and our pass defense will have to be really ready for them.”
If the Chargers win, a top playoff seed is pretty much a guarantee. They will face Wellston, Meeker and Bethel in the last three games, none of which should cause them problems.
There are playoff implications for OCS as well. The Saints, Millwood and Bethel each have one district loss. Bethel though, has Heritage Hall and Millwood left on its schedule. The OCS-Millwood game next week could depict second place in 2A-2.
