Boneman's Week 3 musings...
By Robert Przybylo
Whew, take a breath and relax. Quick poll, what was your favorite game from last night? I’d like to lean toward McGuinness and Millwood with a Mike Shanahan-like gamble going for two with 33 seconds for the Irish to get the 25-24 win.
But Edmond Memorial winning with a touchdown pass on the final play of the game is not too shabby with a 25-23 victory vs. Del City.
However, I’m going to be bias. With my Shawnee background, I’m going to Chandler and the Lions stunning Clinton, 20-14.
I called Chandler QB Jack Gray like crazy last night, but he never got back to me. Fortunately, coach Neal Bacon did.
I have no issues admitting when I’m waaaayyy off. First thing I said to Bacon was “thanks a lot. You made us all look bad.”
And when Bacon was describing the game, I couldn’t believe it. Six lost fumbles. It’s hard enough to have six fumbles in a game, yet alone six lost ones.
Clinton Delans Griffin had that one big run, a 69-yard touchdown run. Bacon said he felt that woke the team up.
I wish I would have been there. Chandler had 64 plays compared to Clinton’s 38 and 20 first downs compared to 8 for the Red Tornadoes.
Ryan Aber billed it as just hard-hitting, old school game. It sure sounded like it. Congrats to the Lions, but you’d have to be a fool to count out Clinton.
Other interesting tidbits from your “all-powerful, omniscient Friday night narrator.”
- Midwest City is not the best 6A team on the west side. The Bombers are the best team in the state…period. They hit you in the mouth right out of the gate, and you have no choice but to succumb to the pressure.
- Seriously, cloning would have been a great idea last night. I would have loved to have seen the Irish and Falcons. And would have loved even more to see that roughing the snapper penalty on the potential game-tying extra point. And how about them EM Bulldogs? I wouldn’t sleep on Del City, either. Eagles are legit.
- Um, where did Northwest come from? I took logic as a “math” class at OU. If A, then B. If B, then C. Therefore, If A, then C.
Not so fast my friends (TM Lee Corso). John Marshall defeated Northwest, 14-8. Centennial defeated John Marshall, 20-15. So Centennial beats NW like maybe 30-20? No, Northwest won 54-0 and received monster games from RB Jimmy Owens and QB B.J. Holloway.
