But Friday, in its final nondistrict contest, Stillwater fell behind 33-0 at halftime in an eventual 36-14 loss at Mustang.

“I told them at halftime that we're gonna find out what they're made of in the second half,” said second-year coach Tucker Barnard. “I think we came out and kept fighting.”

Stillwater opens district play Friday at Ponca City.

“We wanted to establish that we aren't gonna stop; we just have to keep fighting,” Barnard said of Friday's second-half resolve. “I didn't want to learn that lesson tonight, but sometimes that's how it goes. We've gotta get better. (Mustang) out-coached us and they outplayed us.”


Jones freshman Ty Hughes has been seeing playing time on the Longhorns' defensive line but was limited last week against OCS.

Hughes suffered a foot injury in the Longhorns' win over Hennessey. He tried to play against OCS, but only made it through a handful of plays.

Jones coach Dave Martin said Hughes' absence was part of the reason OCS had success running the ball late in the game after the Longhorns shut down the Saints on the ground for three-plus quarters.

“(Linebacker) Taylor (Bilyeu) was able to have plenty of space for most of the game to make plays, but that space went away there late,” Martin said. “He had more people in his lap there near the end.”

Jones opens Class 3A play on the road at Marlow on Friday.
