EDMOND — The old idiom that lighting never strikes in the same place twice may sound like sage advice to some, but to the Midwest City Bombers it’s nothing more than an empty cliche.

After Thursday night’s 46-0 defeat of District 6A-2 rival Edmond North at Wantland Stadium, the top-ranked Bombers are looking like the same team that finished 12-1 and went the state semis last year.

Midwest City (7-0, 4-0) scored on its first play, a 74-yard run by running back Timothy Flanders. The senior made it look easy, carrying 13 times for 152 yards and two touchdowns. Overall, the Bombers rushed for more than 270 yards.

"Our defensive staff did a great job getting our kids ready to play this week,” coach Steve Huff said. "Our guys seemed like they were in good position tonight, and I think they did a really good job chasing the football.”

In addition to the Bombers’ smothering run defense, the team intercepted North’s Brandon Lewellen three times. One of those picks turned into a 31-yard touchdown run by sophomore defensive end Trey’von Lewis.

"All I could think of was getting in the end zone” Lewis said.
