Lightening followed by cracks of thunder dashed all but one minute of the second half of the junior varsity Tigers home game with Woodward Monday night.
Unfortunately for Guymon, the Boomers had done enough damage in the first half, scoring touchdowns in each of the first two quarters. The score was 14-0.
Officials stopped the game with 8:47 elapsed on the clock. Ten-minute quarters are played in JV football.
The Tigers came into the Woodward game 0-3, having scored only in one of their previous games.
Woodward ran the same rushing play over and over. It was as if they were saying, âStop us if you can.â The Boomers gained ground with nearly every carry.
Woodward scored first with :22 remaining on the clock in the first quarter. A good 2-point conversion put the Boomers up 8-0 going into the second frame. Woodward scored once again near the end of the half. A conversion failed and the tally stood at 14-0.
âItâs wet, windy and over,â said Guymon JV coach Randy Swain in the field house during what should have been the third quarter.
Despite the score, he was not displeased with his teamâs performance.
âI thought they kids played pretty well,â Swain said.
âThe kids are improving. Thatâs all you can ask,â he said. âIf they keep practicing hard theyâll get to where they need to be.â
