Kingfisher is making a name for itself this season with defense, but it turns out the Yellowjackets have a pretty good offense, too.
Kingfisher continued its thus far perfect season with a 35-0 win over Heritage Hall Friday night at Pop Murray Memorial Field. Its defense limited Heritage Hall to 39 rushing yards and another 90 through the air while forcing a pair of turnovers.
But the real punishment was dished out by senior running back Landon Nault who carried 25 times for 190 yards and four touchdowns. Nault saved his best run for last, a 65-yard touchdown straight through the heart of Heritage Hall's defense.
“That was my favorite play,” Nault said. “The guys blocked perfect up front and I just kept running.”
Nault said preparation continues to be one of Kingfisher's greatest strengths.
“We feel like we can have a great offense,” he said. “We had a plan and a scheme for this game and we executed. That's what practice is for. We work until we feel everything is where it should be. It's not just about what happens on Friday nights. The real work starts early in the week.”
When Nault wasn't running, Kingfisher's defense was busy smothering Heritage Hall's offense. The Chargers had nine plays that went for zero or negative yards. It was Kingfisher's third shutout this season. Brady Smith also returned an interception 35 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter for Kingfisher.
Heritage Hall never seriously threatened to score. The Chargers had a pair of 15 yard runs from running back Terrell Love but were never able to sustain a drive.
