The Trojans topped Cushing 55-6 last season, but found themselves trailing 16-0 at halftime on Friday. Chris High scored on the first Douglass possession of the second half, but the Trojans hardly touched the ball the rest of the game.
Douglass had one possession in the fourth quarter. Cushing was unable to score in the second half, but controlled the time of possession to put the game away. Cushing (3-3, 1-2) has played other teams close this season, including a one-point loss to Glenpool in Week 5.
Douglass (4-2, 2-1) will try to get back on the winning track this week against McLoud.
