Cushing's rally comes up short against No. 3 Seminole

SEMINOLE, Okla. — After falling behind early, the Cushing Tigers rallied in the fourth but came up short in a 20-14 loss to the Seminole Chieftains Friday.

“To be down three scores and come back and get two scores and two onside kicks and have a chance was good,” coach Barrett Shupe said. “We just got to execute next time.”

Seminole (9-0, 5-0) jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first half. The Tigers were able to drive into Chieftain territory a couple of times but came up empty. The second half was a different story.

Cushing (8-1, 4-1) got on the board early in the fourth quarter and got an onside kick. Quarterback Ian Jones connected with Jai Conley for another touchdown to cut Seminole’s lead to six. The Tigers recovered another onside kick but Jones threw an interception to end the rally.

The Tigers conclude the regular season at home with Bethany in hopes of clinching second place. Seminole clinched the district title and will host Chandler on Friday.

Chandler 56, Perkins-Tryon 26

PERKINS — The Perkins-Tryon Demons’ playoff hopes took a major blow as Chandler racked up more than 500 yards in a 56-26 loss at McIlvain Field.

“Big plays hurt us tonight,” P-T coach Lloyd Wertman said.

The Lions (5-4, 2-3) opened the scoring on a 63-yard touchdown pass. After a P-T punt, Chandler scored again from 40 yards to increase its advantage to 14-0. The Demons trailed 28-7 in the second quarter before they rallied. Tyler Taff scored on a 30-yard run and Matt Waitt scored from a yard to cut the Demons deficit to 28-19 at halftime.

Chandler put the dagger in during the second half with Heath Gray scoring on runs of 56 and 55 yards to put the Lions up 49-19 after three.

The Demons close the season hosting Okmulgee in a non-district game and will have to hope for a three-way tie with Chandler losing to Seminole and Bristow beating Prague.

Hominy 42, Yale 20

HOMINY — The Yale Bulldogs weren’t quite able to get enough going as they fell to the Hominy Bucks Friday.

“They got a couple big plays against us,” coach Craig Ellis said. “Everytime we thought we were going to come back, we would throw an interception or turn it over on downs.”

The loss eliminated Yale (4-5, 2-4) from playoff contention and will close the regular season at Regent Prep Friday.

Morrison 42, Foyil 20

MORRISON — The Morrison Wildcats gave their younger players an opportunity to play in a rout over the Foyil Panthers Friday.

The Wildcats (8-1, 5-0) scored the first 42 points of the game. Jordan Quinata got the scoring started with a 50-yard punt return for a touchdown. The sophomore quarterback also threw for a touchdown and rushed for a score. Quinata finished with 104 yards passing and 75 yards rushing. Scott Van Dorn rushed for one touchdown and returned a kickoff for another. Van Dorn rushed for 46 yards and converted two 2-point conversions.

Morrison will host Kiefer at 7:30 p.m. Friday for the district championship.

“It’s a big game on Friday and hopefully we will have a packed house,” coach Cory Bales said. “It should be a lot of fun.”

Perry 28, Pawnee 14

PAWNEE — The Maroons extended its win streak to two games with a victory over the Black Bears.

It was a competitive contest with the game tied at seven after the first quarter. Perry pulled away in the second quarter as quarterback Dustin Padilla threw touchdown passes to Drake Dale and Joe Rupp, giving the Maroons a 21-7 halftime lead.

Both teams exchanged touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Pawnee quarterback Marlon Houston Jr. scored on a 1-yard run to cut the lead to seven. Perry finished off the Black Bears with a 48-yard run by Darreal Williams.
