Blanchard bombed Madill 60-7 Friday night as junior running back Braden Stringer rushed for 185 yards on just eight carries.
Stringer had a 66-yard touchdown run on Blanchard's first possession and later added a 39-yard scoring run as the Lions never were threatened.
“Had a good night,” Blanchard coach Jeff Craig said. “We got off to a quick start, and I think some of that doubt started to creep in their heads and it just snowballed on them.”
Blanchard rushed for 379 yards as a team. The Lions now get a home game Friday night against Hilldale in the Class 3A quarterfinals after winning their first two playoff games on the road.
Blanchard (10-1) only played four home games during the regular season because of a bye week.
“Everybody down here is sky high to have a home game. They are tired of driving,” Craig said.
Craig said at the beginning of the season the Lions, who missed the playoffs last year, had the chance to be really good.
“I think we have kind of flown under the radar,” he said. “Nobody really talked about us early on. We feel like we can play with anybody.”
HISTORIC BATTLE FOR CLINTON, ADA
Long before Jenks and Tulsa Union became the dominant forces in Oklahoma high school football, Clinton and Ada held the spot.
Ada has 19 state championships, and Clinton has 15. Clinton has 763 all-time victories — most in the state — and Ada has 762.
The two legendary powerhouse programs will meet Friday night in the Class 4A semifinals at Putnam City High School.
Ada routed Cleveland 41-7 in the quarterfinals, while Clinton pulled off a road upset, 20-10 over Cascia Hall.
The other side of the 4A bracket isn't too shabby, either. Defending 4A champ Wagoner will face last year's 3A champion Anadarko on Friday night at Langston University.
DAVIS OVERCOMES HISTORY VS. MILLWOOD
Davis and Millwood had met three times in the playoffs before last Friday night, and Millwood had won all three. That included a state championship meeting and Millwood's upset at Davis in last year's second round.
Davis finally found a way to take down the Falcons with a 42-28 win, but it certainly wasn't easy Friday.
Millwood jumped to a 22-0 lead in the second quarter, but Davis finally got its run game going.
Braden Ruth rushed for 175 yards on 12 carries with two touchdowns, and quarterback Alec Heatherington added three more scores. The Davis defense added four interceptions to stunt the Millwood offense as well.
Davis will go on the road to Adair this Friday night for a Class 2A quarterfinal meeting between undefeated teams.
