Time for the Saturday Morning Quarterback to break down Douglass’ 20-18 win over Glenpool.
I was expecting a close one, but I wasn’t expecting 103 total rushing yards from Douglass. That would have spelled defeat in my opinion.
But Shon Bridges made a few great throws and Marcus Caddell made big play after big play, particularly the 76-yard kickoff return TD and three interceptions — two in the red zone. It was an unbelievably impressive performance, because the big plays came at the most needed times.
Glenpool didn’t help itself with some critical penalties at horrible times and interesting play calls — like the QB draw on fourth and 15 with 33 seconds left in the game.
Douglass sealed up the 4A-2 title and Glenpool will battle Harrah for the second spot next week.
Each of their opponents in the first round of the playoffs will be decided next week. There’s a tie for third place in 4A-1 between Elk City and McGuinness. Elgin and Elk City play each other next week, while McGuinness faces Guymon.
Douglass OL/DL Cayman Bundage left in the fourth quarter with what appeared to be a knee injury. Hopefully it’s not serious, because Bundage plays a crucial role on the line for the Trojans. I’ll check in with Alexander to see how Bundage is doing later in the week.
Douglass concludes its regular season with senior night against Cleveland, which will be big, because this is the group of kids who came in as freshmen when Willis Alexander became the coach.
