After missing the opening playoff game against Del City due to a health issue, Carl Albert lineman Caleb Holland returned last week against Claremore.
VIAN DOMINATING THROUGH 12 WEEKS
After averaging more than 60 points per game during the regular season, Vian's offense has been even more powerful the last couple of weeks.
In two playoff games, the Wolverines are averaging 77 points per game. Vian beat Haskell 78-8 in the opening round and Kansas 76-26 last week.
Amazingly, the win over Kansas was one of the Wolverines' closest games of the season. The closest came in the season opener, when Vian beat Spiro 55-7.
This week, though, things figure to be significantly tougher as Vian hosts two-time defending Class 2A champion Hennessey — the last team to defeat Wolverines.
The Eagles (10-2) have won nine consecutive games since a 1-2 start that included losses to fellow powers Jones and Kingfisher.
Hennessey gave Class 3A No. 1 Kingfisher its toughest game of the season, falling to the Yellowjackets 21-20 on Sept. 14.
Hennessey beat Vian 18-7 at home in the 2A quarterfinals last season.
