Friday's 7 p.m. games include Crooked Oak vs. Northeast at Douglass, Del City vs. Southeast at Crooked Oak and Heritage Hall at Star Spencer.
YUKON'S PLAYOFF HOPES STILL ALIVE
The chances of Yukon making its fifth straight playoff appearance appeared to be dead after the Oct. 24 loss to Midwest City.
But with Lawton Eisenhower's upset of Putnam City North on Friday night, the Millers are still alive for the postseason.
There are several scenarios left to play out, with Midwest City, Edmond North and Putnam City North tied for second place in District 6A-3 with 4-2 records. But Yukon, at 3-3, has one fact to take care of: win.
