When: 7:30 p.m., Friday
Where: Ardmore High School
Records: McGuinness 6-4, 5-2 District 5A-2 (third); Ardmore 8-2, 6-1 District 5A-1 (seoncd)
Players to watch: McGuinness — Jacob Lewis, QB. The senior accounted for eight touchdowns last week — earning The Oklahoman’s Player of the Week honors — and has stifled the turnover bug that plagued him early in the season.
Ardmore — Jarred Hall, QB. Hall led a comeback that fell just short last week against Lawton MacArthur. What does he have in store for the Irish?
Storylines: McGuinness — Was last week’s win one that could propel the Irish in the playoffs? McGuinness has a similar feel to Carl Albert last season, overcoming a slow start to get hot in the playoffs.
Ardmore — Slow down Lewis. Deer Creek didn’t have an answer for the dual-threat QB, but the Tigers have a stronger defense that can limit him.
The pick: Ardmore 21, McGuinness 20
