So Huff elected to go with the Austin-Cortrez Colbert combo again, and it paid off. Austin found his receiver open over the middle with a 9-yard bullet, and the celebration for Midwest City began. Midwest City improved to 5-0 overall and 2-0 in District 6A-1.
"We know we've trailed in every game, but we also know we have a chance to be a good club," Huff said. Our goal is to peak around week eight and nine and go from there."
The unranked Panthers (2-3, 1-1) looked sharp throughout after coming off a big win over then-No. 7 Edmond Memorial last week.
Their spark plug was wide receiver Covin Conrady and a defense that racked up six sacks on the night and kept Bombers' explosive tailback, James Flanders, in check.
Conrady finished with nine catches for 230 yards and touchdown.
Flanders wound up with 158 yards on 30 tough carries and two scores. He went over 100 yards in the first quarter but had to work for the rest.
PC North welcomed back Holman, who had a pair of touchdowns and 64 yards after missing the first four games with a knee injury he suffered on the first day of fall camp.
"This was a good game, and maybe down the line it will help the kids," Huff said.
"I just hope I don't have a heart attack before that."
