Ed North vs. Lawton Eisenhower Capsule...
By Robert Przybylo
Edmond North (3-0) vs. Lawton Eisenhower (1-2)
When: 7:30 p.m.
Where: Cameron Stadium
North (W, Santa Fe, 14-13; W, Mustang, 38-28; W, Yukon, 24-14)
Why the Huskies can win: Jeremy Dombek’s club survived its first road test and is prepared for a game like this. Junior QB Travis Townsend has been incredibly poised. Kinda easy to do when you have the running backs he does.
Why Lawton Ike can win: Because nobody impressed me more in the scrimmage part of the season than running back Louis Durant. Against both Santa Fe and McGuinness, he looked and played the part of a special back. He hasn’t let down since.
Key matchup: North running game vs. Lawton Ike front seven. Though Townsend has been efficient, with district play here, should be able to rely on Joe Aska, Qua’Don Henderson and Jared Benway. It’ll be interesting if Ike stacks up the box to force Townsend to make a play.
The pick: North 31, Lawton Ike 17. A major weapon for North is K Austin Brasher. Once the Huskies reach the 30, they’re thinking at least 3 points and that allows you to get creative.
