Millwood rolls over Cascia Hall
Millwood coach Darwin Franklin and his coaches timed Marcus
Major’s 40-yard screen pass he took to the end zone Friday night against Cascia Hall.
They clocked him at 4.3 seconds. “He looked like he was floating,” Franklin said. “He was moving.”
While the measurement was possibly not the most accurate, the result of Class 2A No. 1 Millwood (3-0) at Class 4A No. 5 Cascia Hall (1-2) really never was in doubt as Millwood outgained Cascia Hall by 173 yards to 12 in the first half, and kept rolling in the second half for the 52-15 victory.
“We are feeling good but we are not dwelling on it,” Franklin said. “We need to keep getting better and improving and doing what we need to do to get better and always be improving.”
In addition to the touchdown catch by Major, Millwood quarterback Montrell Wilson also threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Kittakone Sirisombath. The Falcons also scored on a blocked punt by Dezmond Howard.
JOHN MARSHALL HAPPY WITH IMPROVEMENT AGAINST SULPHUR
Coach Rashaun Woods said he knew replacing several starters from last year’s playoff semifinals team wasn’t going to be easy. But through three games he’s happy with the Bears development.
As Class 3A No. 3 John Marshall (2-1) defeated Class 3A No. 6 Sulphur (3-1) 35-18 on Friday night, Woods credited a few new guys for stepping up.
“Trey Eason played really well,” Woods said of the transfer from Anadarko. “Che’Don Caldwell stepped it up on defense too. We lost a lot of leadership so it’s been good to see new guys stepping up.”
After a rough start to the season, a 21-point Week 1 loss to Heritage Hall, Woods said his team has steadily improved each week.
“We weren’t happy with the way we executed in week 1 or 2,” Woods said. “So I think we were happier with how we did in week 3 but we still have plenty to work on.”
MARLOW BEATS WASHINGTON IN DOUBLE OT
Down 14 late in the fourth quarter, Class 3A Marlow (1-3) needed a spark to have a chance of making it a game against Class 2A Washington (3-1.)
They got it on defense as senior defensive back Blaise Voight intercepted a Washington pass and returned it deep into Washington territory, eventually setting up a 1-yard touchdown run by senior quarterback Will Coffman to make the game 21-14 with three minutes remaining.

Overshine then recovered an onside kick and on the first play, Coffman hit receiver Dawson Huddleston for a 44-yard bomb to tie the game at 21-21, sending it into overtime.
After both teams exchanged scores in the first overtime period, Washington got the ball first to make it 35-28. Marlow was able to answer when senior running back
Owen Waxell scored on a 5-yard run and then Marlow decided to end things right there as Coffman hit Huddleston again, this time on a 2-point conversion in the corner of the end zone to win 36-35.
