HOOKERâIt appeared that the Bulldogs were going to skin the âSkins Thursday night until Hooker gave up two touchdowns in the final four minutes of play dashing the shutout.
It was still ugly for the Liberal junior varsity and a stellar offensive and defensive game for Hooker.
The Bulldogsâ offensive attack included 290 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. Taylor McBee recorded four, Joe Bean scored two and freshman Dayton Metcalf scored one. Hooker only gained 71 yards passing.
The final damage for Liberal was 46-14.
GOODWELLâThe Eagles got a 28-0 drubbing from Satanta, Kan., in the home opener Thursday night.
The game marked the first home game the Eagles have ever played at night under the lights at Goodwell High School. New lighting was recently installed at the field in Goodwell. The Eagles had traditionally played at Carl Wooten Field on the campus of nearby Oklahoma Panhandle State University
âWeâve got to take care of the ball. We canât go down the field and turn the ball over,â said Goodwell head coach Jason Pierson.
âWe had three turnovers in the end zone and one other turnover,â he said.
HOOKERâThe Lady Bulldogs tamed the Lady Bobcats with an 18-3 win Thursday.
The game was called in the bottom of the third inning when Hooker scored the 18th run, creating a 15-run deficit for Tyrone and invoking the 15-run mercy rule.
The Lady Bulldogs came out fighting in the bottom of the first frame. While Tyrone led 2-0, Hooker quickly tied the game and took the lead with two more runs scored by Shania Miller and Kyra Cathcart.
TEXHOMAâThe Red Devil junior varsity produced offensive and defensive attacks that stymied the Guymon JV Thursday night.
The final score was 30-0 Texhoma over the Tigers.
The tally was 22-0 at halftime and the remaining eight points came in the third quarter. Statistics were not kept.
Texhoma head coach Aaron Witten credited quarterback Dylan Koehn for playing a good game.
âHe rushed for a touchdown. He threw for a touchdown and ran in a two point conversion and threw for a two-point conversion,â Witten said.
Macy Pritchard caught several Lady Bulldogs looking and others swinging at the air as she fanned 11 batters pacing the Lady Tigers to wins on both ends of a doubleheader played at Guymon Tuesday night.
The Lady Tigers won the games over Hooker 6-5 and 13-1. Pritchard had six strikeouts in the first game and five in the second. She allowed minimal hits and walks.
It was Pritchardâs best pair of pitching performances yet.
The 14-year-old freshman didnât get the familiar âitty-bitty freshmanâ chant from her teammates when she batted but they did chant, âLetâs go rookie.â

Texhoma made it into the semifinals and Guymon, Goodwell, Hooker and Tyrone made it as far as quarterfinal play in the 2012 Guymon Softball Tournament played Friday and Saturday.
The defending 2011 tournament champion, the Guymon Lady Tigers, had their hopes dashed Saturday afternoon by a Colorado team that is ranked No. 5 in that state.
A few hours later, the Lamar, Colo., Lady Savages won the tournament championship with a 5-0 win over Forgan.
Lamar emerged from semifinal play earlier on Saturday with a 13-0 win over Texhoma, eliminating the Lady Devils from the tournament.
Will the defending 2011 Guymon Softball Tournament champion, the Lady Tigers, repeat at they 2012 tournament? That cannot be answered without knowing all of the results from pool play on Friday.
As the second and final day of play begins at 10 a.m. today, Texhoma has emerged the leader from Pool B with wins in all four games played Friday.
Pool A final results were unclear late Friday night because attempts to reach several coaches were unsuccessful.
TEXHOMAâA three-way scrimmage last night showed Texhoma head coach Aaron Witten that the Red Devils are ready for the football season, now just days away. On the other hand, the scrimmage was a reminder for Guymon head coach Bryan Ballard that the Tigers still need work with just five days remaining before the season opener.
âWe played really well,â Witten said.
