But the night belonged to Farmer, who intends to verbally commit to Arizona State on a recruiting visit this weekend. It was first time Farmer has scored five touchdowns in any game from pee wee football to high school football.
“When he gets confident and knowing he can't be stopped, he's hard to stop,” Dombek said.
It was the first time Edmond North (8-1 overall, 5-1 in District 6A-3) has beaten Midwest City (2-7, 2-4) in five tries, with none of the four previous games being closer than 21 points.
The victory ensured that Edmond North will host a first-round playoff game in two weeks. It also eliminated Midwest City, which starts just four seniors, from the playoffs for the first time since 2005.
“It was a big night for us,” Dombek said. “I love our football team. I think we got a lot pieces to the puzzle that translate into playoff wins.
“We run the football well and we are good against the run. We play tough defense. That's a good formula to have.”
