Private schools: Week 8 Recap...
By Robert Przybylo
A couple of teams took big steps up while some took a step back. Coming down the stretch with only two weeks left.
Bishop McGuinness (6-2, 4-1)
I predicted 34-7. In actuality, it was 34-0 for the Irish at Guymon. That’s what you’re supposed to do against a weaker opponent.
The most notable thing in Week 8 happened at Moses F. Miller Stadium when Weatherford beat Douglass. I talked to Jameel Whitney on Saturday, and he said they were getting their hopes up.
A Douglass win would have made a three-way tie. But with the Eagles win, Weatherford is in the driver’s seat to claim the 4A-1 title. Irish are looking at second as have head-to-head edge on the Trojans.
The Irish take on Southeast on Friday.
Heritage Hall (5-3, 5-0)
Another team that put itself in control of its own destiny for a district crown. The Chargers had their most impressive game of the season in a 49-7 win against Newkirk.
Sterling Shepard is playing with a lot more confidence at quarterback and that is crucial if this team is going to make a run.
The rich get richer as sophomore Quintaz Struble has been cleared to play. The only question is when he will suit up.
Heritage hosts John Marshall (6-2, 3-2) on Friday.
Casady (7-2, 3-2)
Knew it would be a battle with Houston Episcopal. It was 17-15 HE in the fourth quarter when HE put the game out of reach.
