Filling the gaps
Qualan Johnson, Midwest City
The Bombers' new running back made his biggest play on Midwest City's final drive, when he bounced away from a hit in the backfield on third down and turned it into a first down.

The run was one of two Johnson had on third down in the series, which was capped by a touchdown in the final minute to help the Bombers pull off a 7-7 tie against Carl Albert.
Kilby McGuire, Midwest City
McGuire, taking the spot that was expected to be filled by Joel Davis, was uneven in his second scrimmage as the Bombers' starting quarterback.
“He played like a first-time starter,” Midwest City coach Darrell Hall said. “He got antsy in the box sometimes, even when he got good protection.”
But McGuire did get a big lift in the final minute, throwing a 12-yard touchdown pass to Zac Brannon in the final minute to salvage the tie against Carl Albert.
Steven Thompson and Bryan Williams, Carl Albert
The quarterback/running back tandem turned in a good performance against their crosstown rivals.
“They did what we wanted them to do,” Titans coach Gary Rose said. “Bryan's got to get in shape, because we've got to use him on both sides, but overall it was much better than last week.”
Mostly sticking to the ground, Thompson and Williams hurt Midwest City with the zone read, though Rose said there was still plenty of improvement to be made.
