The Bombers (1-5, 1-2) started the season having won 37 consecutive district games. They have now lost two of their first three district games and with undefeated Edmond North among the teams remaining on the schedule, the Bombers need to turn things around quickly to avoid missing the playoffs for the first time since 2005.

The Panthers' win was their first over Midwest City in the last five meetings.

“They're still Midwest City,” Wilson said of a team that was No. 6 in the preseason rankings. “They're a young team, but they have a lot of tradition. We've got tradition, too, and we're trying to get back to that.

“We've had some great battles with them over the years, and it's still special to come into Rose Field and get a win.”

Moore finished with 187 rushing yards on 19 carries and added a 30-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter.

Larry Butler had a 60-yard touchdown reception on a shovel pass and returned a kickoff for a touchdown.

Butler's return — the opening kick of the second half — was one of two for TDs by North.

Qualan Johnson had 106 yards rushing and a touchdown for Midwest City.
