HOOKER — Jaden Valles scored two touchdowns and John Godfrey another as the Hooker Bulldogs gave defending Class A state champion Hollis all they could handle, but fell late, 28-20, Friday night at Bulldog Stadium.

“They’re the defending state champs, they haven’t lost a game in a long time, I don’t think they’ve had a close game in a long time,” said Hooker head coach Bill Patterson. “We gave them everything they wanted, and more.”

Valles scored one rushing touchdown and scored another off a pass from Dayton Metcalf, while Godfrey’s score came on the ground.

Guymon to battle Liberal in home-opener

September 10, 2014

GUYMON — For the Guymon Tigers, last week’s 31-22 setback at Hugoton was
not as bad as the score might seem. It was a loss, but in a way it was a win because the Tigers proved their new offensive scheme can produce points, the team has bought into it, and the players didn’t roll over and
play dead after they lost an early lead on a rainy night in Kansas.

Hugoton holds off Guymon in the rain, 31-22

September 5, 2014

HUGOTON, Kan. — The changes the Guymon High School coaching staff made in the off-season were obvious Friday night in Hugoton.

The defense was swarming and the offense showed improvement on a rainy night in Kansas.

But the Tigers not only had to overcome the weather and a quick Hugoton offense led by quarterback Parker Titus, but what can only be described as questionable officiating in a 31-22 loss.
