Ada vs. Deer Creek Capsule...
By Robert Przybylo
Ada (5-4) at Deer Creek (6-3)
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Where: Deer Creek Stadium, Edmond (I will be there)
Why the Cougars can win: You have to remember that this is the same team that took Guthrie to the absolute limit. Ada only lost that game 13-7. Ada also went the distance with an undefeated McAlester team (21-20). Don’t let the 55-12 loss to Carl Albert cloud that judgment.
Deer Creek (W- Piedmont; L – Shawnee; W – Tecumseh; L – Guthrie; W – Western Heights; W – El Reno; W – Southeast; W- Noble; L – Carl Albert)
Why the Antlers can win: Because the inferiority complex is gone. This team has to believe that it belongs with 5A clubs like Ada. It took too long against Guthrie and Carl Albert. They’ve got one more chance.
I won’t allow it to happen again (slow start). All of us seniors will do whatever we need to do. This is our night.” – QB Alex Christensen
Key matchup: You guessed it, Deer Creek start. I’ma hit you over the head with this because it stands out so much. Antlers need a good start, and they should be able to settle down.
The pick: Deer Creek 24, Ada 18. Think I’ma be seeing a good one. With so much at stake for both teams, cannot wait for this one. Christensen powers his way through the Ada defense for the game-winning touchdown.
Boneman’s Deer Creek prediction record: 9-0.
