Outlaws soar past Rockets

MARLOW — The Outlaws had a better week of practice and it showed.

Marlow High football took control early in Friday’s homecoming game against Mount St. Mary, winning 31-7 in District 1-3A play.

“It was totally different,” said Outlaw coach Rob Renshaw, in comparing his team’s performance a week earlier against Jones, to its showing against the Rockets.

Renshaw had remarked a week earlier that “you play like your practice,” and that the team didn’t have some good practices prior to its Sept. 27 game at Jones, a 15-14 district loss.

That wasn’t the case this past week, according to senior running back Kagan Blackburn.

“We practiced a lot harder during the week,” said Blackburn, who rushed for 190 yards on 16 carries. “The week of Jones, on Monday and Tuesday, practice was intense. We had that intensity this week.”

Blackburn’s final touchdown run of the game was evidence of that effort the Outlaws showed. He broke a pair of tackles and evaded several other defenders on a 51-yard run to the end zone.

The Marlow senior added a 16-yard touchdown run in the first quarter and a 62-yard run in the second.

The Outlaws tallied 411 yards rushing on 38 carries. That’s 10.8 yards per carry. Blackburn praised the offensive line for its blocking.

“As running backs, we get the credit, but they (the linemen) are the ones who help our cause in every game,” he said.

Senior Trey Coffman had 115 yards rushing on 18 carries, including a 16-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Braeden O’Dell had four rushes for 106 yards, with an 85-yard touchdown run to open the second quarter. The sophomore passer completed four of six passes for 50 yards, including a 16-yard touchdown pass to Coffman.

“I liked the way we were physical,” Renshaw said. “Kagan and Trey did a better job of hitting the holes and our special, save for the missed extra points, did a great job.”

The Rockets got 241 yards rushing on 46 carries but had four turnovers, three which led to Marlow touchdowns.

There was much for the Outlaws to be happy about.

“We were more physical, got after it right away and we did good job of not getting off the gas pedal,” Renshaw said. “(But) we’ve got bigger fish to fry. We get Blanchard next week.”

Blanchard is the defending Class 4A state champion and is undefeated (5-0) this season. The Outlaws (4-1) head to the Lions’ field this Friday for a district showdown — a showdown the Outlaws are already focused on.

“As of Sunday, after we watch the film, our minds are off this game and on Blanchard,” Blackburn said.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
