Guide to No. 1 Millwood at No. 6 Meeker

by Jacob Unruh Modified: November 29, 2013 at 1:10 pm •  Published: November 29, 2013

When: 7:30 p.m., Friday

Where: Meeker High School

Records: Millwood 12-0 (6-0 District 2A-2, first); Meeker 12-0 (6-0 District 2A-5, first)

Last week: Millwood 60, Hobart 6; Meeker 20, Nowata 14

Players to watch: Millwood — Alfonzo McMillian, WR/DB. The senior had a pick-six last week and is a huge part of the Falcons’ impressive secondary.

Meeker — Leven Hendley, RB. The senior was held out of the end zone last week, but still has 15 touchdowns this season for the balanced Bulldogs, who feature a three-headed attack on the ground.

Storylines: Millwood — The Falcons’ have been one of the top offensive teams in the state, averaging more than 52 points per game. Meeker, though, has allowed just 7.6 points per game. Something has to give.

Meeker — Get the ground game going well and keep the ball away from the Falcons, eating the clock and helping the defense deal with the extremely athletic stars Millwood boasts.

The pick: Millwood 35, Meeker 21
