FMQ: Duo of Kameron Doolittle and Ry Huff get it done...
By Robert Przybylo
We’re still a long ways from Week 10 against Yukon, but my mind is already running wild with playoff scenario situations for Edmond Memorial.
Seriously, I’ve done at least like 10 different scenarios at this point. Maybe I should just wait until after Week 9, huh? It just feels right now Memorial could be the best team to not make the playoffs (Southmoore would have a good claim, too).
A lot can change in a week. And if you watched the Bulldogs against Norman North, you see why coach Justin Merideth has been so excited about his team the whole year.
Memorial 31, Norman North 14
Set the tone early. First play from scrimmage for Memorial was a nine-yard run by Kameron Doolittle. It announced, “I’m back. I’m a force and good luck stopping me.”
Doolittle actually wasn’t as big of a factor later in the game, but that first quarter was where he made his mark. The Bulldogs fed off that momentum and that offensive line was extremely pumped up.
But give a lot of credit to Ry Huff. A really good game plan by Merideth of using Doolittle early, and then countering with Huff for most of the the final three quarters.
Huff threw a couple of really nice passes, but what the combo does more than anything is give a defense too much to think about. Each can run and/or pass. And heck, we saw one play where Huff threw to Doolittle.
But the turning point of this game was early in the third quarter. Norman North forced a fumble on the first play and was trailing 10-7 with a chance to tie or take the lead.
The field goal was no good. Memorial goes 80 yards in 12 plays and takes a 17-7 lead, and there ya go.
North had Emilio Gatewood at QB at times. Found ways to get it to Daniel Davis and Raymond Demby. Real good scheme as well from Lance Manning, just kinda got caught in the fourth quarter.
