Running back showdown in Edmond Friday

When Warren is carrying the ball in Friday night's Lawton-Edmond Memorial game, be ready for a big play — whether it's Memorial's Warren Wand or Lawton's Mike Warren.

The two are among Class 6A's best running backs and will go head-to-head at 7 p.m. Friday at Central Oklahoma's Wantland Stadium.

Coming off a big game against Deer Creek, Wand has rushed for 546 yards and five touchdowns, averaging 182 yards per game. Warren is averaging 218.2 yards per game with 655 yards and eight touchdowns on just 62 carries.

PIEDMONT EARNS FIRST WIN

The Piedmont offense finally got the jump-start it was looking for after a slow beginning to the season. After having scored just three points total in the first two games, the Wildcats got going Friday in a 42-12 win over Western Heights.

The Piedmont ground game accounted for four touchdowns and more than 200 rushing yards. Darrius Burris rushed for 83 yards, and Lucas Richert threw for 141 in the victory.

In its final season before moving up to Class 5A, Piedmont opens district play Friday at Woodward.
