Morrison dominates Depew in District 7-A opener

STILLWATER, Okla. — Before Friday’s game against Depew, Morrison coach Cory Bales was confident in how his team matched up on the offensive and defensive lines. Friday night, the Wildcats showed why in a 54-8 victory over the winless Depew Hornets (0-4, 0-1).

“We played well up front both offense and defense,” Bales said. “We had 470 yards rushing to 78. We got to do what we were good at and did a good job.”

All three of Morrison’s victories have been by at least 34-points with Friday being the largest. Bales said the Wildcats made some big strides.

“We got better up front,” Bales said. “We were able to get movement on the line and create gaps and break long runs. We kept drives moving.”

Bales said his running backs made solid contributions.

“The running backs had a lot of carries because the game got out of hand quickly,” Bales said. “We were good up front especially with the strong side. (Kyle) Collins, (Jordan) Quinata and (Scott) VanDorn scored touchdowns.

The Wildcats (3-1, 1-0) travel to Hominy on Friday.

The Bulldogs finally got the monkey off their back — the first win of the season in a 72-20 rout of the Warriors Thursday.

“It was good,” Davis said. “We played all right. It was a good feeling.”

Carney scored more points Thursday than in its first three games, scoring 11 touchdowns. Davis, who got his first win at Carney said the offense played well.

“Our offensive line played well,” Davis said. “The receivers got open and it made the difference.”

Quarterback Ty Wiseman threw for five touchdowns. Receiver Trevor Miller caught five touchdowns and rushed for three. On defense senior Chase Ellison got pressure on the quarterback and was also a leader on the offensive line.

The Bulldogs travel to Deer-Creek Lamont on Friday.
