Elgin is expected to ask for the athlete to be reinstated at the Nov. 7 meeting of the OSSAA's Board of Directors. The school is also expected to propose self-imposed sanctions.

In that same session, Sequoyah-Tahlequah is expected to appeal the an OSSAA ruling on 12 of its players and coach Brent Scott.

The players won a temporary restraining order granting them temporary eligibility in last week's game against Hilldale and this week's game against Lincoln Christian ahead of the hearing. Scott was not covered by the restraining order and missed last week's game and will not coach this week.

Elgin's forfeiture was initially reported by The Piedmont Citizen.

HOME PLAYOFF GAME IN REACH FOR STAR SPENCER

Just getting back to the playoffs would be a significant accomplishment at Star Spencer this season.

The Bobcats had only two wins — and two coaching changes — in the two seasons following their last playoff appearance, when they won the Class 4A state title in 2009.

But entering the final week of the regular season, the Bobcats even have a shot at a home playoff berth, should they be able to knock off Heritage Hall Friday night and get some help with a Newcastle win over Bethel.

Should the Bobcats lose to Heritage Hall, they're still in moderately good standing for a playoff berth, though it could come down to a points tiebreaker between them, Bethel and Newcastle.

MUSTANG-SOUTHMOORE LIVE ON NEWSOK FRIDAY

Both stuck in a crazy four-way tie for third place in District 6A-4, each desperately needing a win, Mustang and Southmoore will fight for a potential playoff berth live on NewsOK.com Friday.

The SaberCats host Mustang at 7 p.m. Friday, and the game will be broadcast live via NewsOK and ZPreps.com.
