The Oklahoman's Class B rankings: Pond Creek-Hunter stays in top five after loss to No. 1 Laverne

Sometimes a loss just doesn’t deserve punishment in the rankings. And in Class B this season, just about any loss to Laverne falls into that category.

Pond Creek-Hunter held its spot at No. 3 in the rankings this week, after holding Laverne to its second-lowest scoring output of the season in the 40-6 contest.

Likewise, Keota held its spot at No. 8 after hanging tight with No. 2 Wetumka on Friday. Dewar, which narrowly escaped in its game against Weleetka, was jumped by Davenport in the poll this week, though trying to make a case for either team over the other is nearly impossible. They might be the two most evenly matched teams in any poll in any class.

Dewar has the head-to-head win, but in comparing the total body of work, and comparing other common opponents, Davenport got the edge this week.

Here’s The Oklahoman’s Class B top 10:

Rank, Team, Record (Prev.)
1. Laverne, 10-0 (1)
2. Wetumka, 10-0 (2)
3. Pond Creek-Hunter, 9-1 (3)
4. Rejoice Christian, 9-0 (4)
5. Alex, 10-0 (5)
6. Fox, 9-1 (6)
7. Coyle, 8-1 (7)
8. Keota, 8-2 (8)
9. Central Marlow, 8-2 (9)
10. Davenport, 8-2 (NR)
Dropped out: Dewar, 7-3 (10)
