Nathaniel Ocran and Tae Moore each went over the 100-yard rushing mark, and Moore scored two touchdowns.

“We were gonna hit them with the runs all day and switch it up and pass to keep them guessing,” Moore said. “It was just about executing and getting in the end zone.”

Hunter, typically a blocking back on offense, also found the end zone twice, once on a run and once on a pass. Quarterback John Robert Simon was 6-of-10 passing for 59 yards and rushed for a score.

Now, the Panthers turn their attention to road game against a struggling Midwest City squad that got its first win of the season Thursday night at U.S. Grant.

“Coming into Midwest City off a win will be a good feeling,” Moore said. “We know they're gonna come out and hit us. We won't back down, we'll hit them, too. We ain't gonna hold nothing back. We want to go to the playoffs.”
