Coyle falls at home in first round of playoffs

COYLE, Okla. —

Coyle High School running back Gary Hunter scored two touchdowns and the defense held Davenport to just one second-half score, but it was not enough as the Bluejackets saw their season come to an end with a 22-12 loss in the opening round Class B state playoffs Friday.

“We had a couple opportunities to score, but had a couple of dropped passes and a few penalties,” Coyle coach Shane Weathers said. “We held them to one score in the second half. They were just a little bit bigger than we, but we had a little more speed. We just couldn’t quite get over the hump.”

Despite playing in its first home playoff game at its new field, Weathers said nerves weren’t really a factor, as Coyle trailed 16-6 at halftime.

Hunter’s second touchdown in the third quarter gave the Bluejackets (8-2) some hope, but Coyle never could complete the comeback.

“They kind of hit us in the mouth and we came back and really fought back,” Weathers said. “We made the right calls. We just didn’t quite have enough time on the clock.”

Hunter finished with 135 rushing on two touchdowns to lead Coyle, which set a season high in wins.


BLANCHARD — The Perkins-Tryon Demons were no match for the top-ranked Blanchard Lions in a first-round playoff loss.

“We had too many turnovers,” coach Lloyd Wertman said. “Blanchard was well deserving of being No. 1. We allowed too many big plays. (Braden) Stringer is a quality back.”

Scoring for the Demons was Jacob Peyton and Shawn Crosby. Senior Matt Waitt added an extra point. The Demons finish the season at 5-6 and lose several seniors including, Waitt, quarterback Shelby Reese, running backs Clark Crotty and Tyler Taff, defensive end Kyle Richards and tight end John Sasser.


JONES — The Cushing Tigers end their season on a three-game losing streak after a first round loss to the Jones Longhorns in a Class 3A playoff matchup. The Tigers fell behind 20-0 and weren’t able to rally.

Cushing loses several seniors including star running back Gage Stallworth, wide receivers Jai Conley and Daniel Hood, defensive lineman Trevor Hubble and offensive lineman Shelby Tallman.
