“It looks like it'll come down to the district points matchup,” Wofford said. “We've got to take care of our end and win the games we can.”


Derrick Moore has been putting up huge numbers for Wetumka all season.

Thursday night, though, it was Chase Williams whose numbers were eye-popping.

Williams had 11 touchdowns — 10 rushing and one receiving — in Wetumka's 92-46 win over Bowlegs.

The junior did it with just 19 touches, rushing for 343 yards on 15 carries and catching four passes for 131 yards. All-in-all, Williams scored 70 points for Class B's No. 2 team.

Williams' performance wasn't the only big-time performance in Class B.

Garber's Jordan Avantz ran for nine touchdowns in its 68-56 win over Covington-Douglas.

Avantz ran for 425 yards on 28 carries and also completed six of his eight passes for 104 yards.


Wagoner junior running back Lawrence Evitt had yet another monster game for the defending Class 4A champions in a 40-24 win over undefeated Cleveland.

Evitt ran for 336 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 25 carries.

He's already nearing 2,000 yards for the season.

It was Kerwin Thomas who turned then the even bigger game for Wagoner, with 240 total yards and four touchdowns.

Thomas, No. 24 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the state's top recruits for the 2013 class, was hurt in the final minute and will reportedly miss the rest of the season after suffering an injured sternum.
