Week 8: Three things we learned in Tulsa area...
Hey, Matt Baker of The Tulsa World is back to clue us in on what happened in the Tulsa area last week:
The regular season is winding down, and some schools that were expected to contend for playoff berths (Southmoore, Tulsa Memorial) are out of the picture.
But it ain’t over ‘till it’s over – which is what Union proved last week. And that’s where we’ll start the three things we learned last week in Tulsa:
1. Union’s mystique is hard to stop. That’s the only way to explain the Redskins’ 36-35 win over Bartlesville, which included a 22-point rally. Union also needed a late comebock to escape Broken Arrow
earlier this season.
Union hasn’t lost a district game since 1997 – a remarkable streak. The Redskins should have lost Thursday. Bartlesville needed only to run out the clock to hold onto a win.
But the Redskins have a huge advantage. They expect to win, even if the scoreboard, clock and common sense suggest otherwise. That’s why we should expect to see Union in the state finals, again.
2. Don’t forget about Glenpool. The Warriors are playing with a mission after last season’s first-round playoff exit. For evidence, see Glenpool’s 54-27 blowout win over a good Cleveland team.
