NEWCASTLE - Deer Creek found itself in a three-time lightning delay at Western Heights Friday night.
Nothing new, the Antlers battled through the same conditions in a competitive game at Stillwater at the start of the season.But the pesky Jets took advantage of a pair of fumbles — one at the Western Heights six-yard line and the other at midfield — and held a 9-7 lead on the Antlers at halftime.

The Antlers forced the Jets to a three-and-out to begin the second half and went on to a 28-9 come-from-behind victory.
