Big plays carry Douglass past Oologah

Cobb finished with 138 yards on 15 carries, scoring twice, and Washington rushed seven times for 50 yards, breaking multiple tackles on his 24-yard TD run. Quarterback Shon Bridges completed all five pass attempts for 57 yards, including a 36-yard TD toss to Donnell Ward.

Ultimately, it was the Douglass defense that carried the load.

“When the offense turns the ball over, we don't have a choice but to live on our defense,” coach Willis Alexander said of a unit that has allowed more than 18 points only once all season. “The defense played well tonight. We've got to do a better job of holding onto the football if we plan on going any further.”

Going further is definitely in the plans for a Trojan team that lost the 4A title to Star Spencer last season at Oklahoma State's Boone Pickens Stadium.

“After the first half, the coaches kept telling us we needed to turn it up, so that this wouldn't be our last game,” McKinney said. “We want to get back to Stillwater. That's all that matters.”

Douglass will face top-ranked Broken Bow (12-0) at an undetermined neutral site next week. The Savages beat Elgin 33-13.
