The Eagles' defense was impressive on Friday night, shutting out Carl Albert.

 

The unit limited star quarterback Stevie Thompson to 2 for 8 passing and held the Titans' rushing attack in check most of the night.

 

“They did what we wanted them to do,” said coach Nick Warehime. “We wanted them to play fast. We we're able to close holes quickly. We have good team speed on defense and great coaches.”

ROSSI SHINES AMID QB BATTLE

Edmond North senior receiver Luke Rossi doesn't have a preference at quarterback for the Huskies.

He caught passes from both Stephen McClernon and Branden Moore on Friday, scoring both touchdowns for the Huskies.

“I feel like this year we've been able to open the offense more,” Rossi said. “Coach (Scott) Burger, he knows a lot about defenses, so whenever he sees something he's really good about getting what we need to do in.

“I think a lot of it's just coming to me and they made some passes out there that were just ridiculous.”

MAMMEN A LEADER  

Edmond Memorial coach Justin Merideth felt that linebacker Jake Mammen was a leader for the Bulldogs. He helped force a fumble, pressure Moore's quarterback and, per Merideth, prepare his teammates for the play.

“He's kind of mentally the guy on defense,” Merideth said. “He's somebody that we're counting on to make sure that we're lined up.”

 

MOORE ELECTS TO PLAY CONSERVATIVELY

Moore purposefully chose to not air out their quarterback's arm much Friday.

“We tried to be pretty vanilla tonight,” Moore coach Todd Watters said.
