Outlaws soar past Rockets

MARLOW — A week after not having its best performance, the Marlow High School was back to business, taking control early against Mount St. Mary at home Friday en route to a 31-7 victory.

“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.

The Outlaws had five possessions in the first half and scored on all of them. Mount St. Mary was able to move the ball at times but could never find a rhythm until the second half. By that point, the Outlaws had the game well in hand.

Marlow’s first touchdown came in the first quarter after a 16-yard run by Kagan Blackburn. After the Outlaws forced a fumble on the Rockets’ next drive, Trey Coffman scored on a 16 yard-run. Marlow led 13-0 after the first period.

In the second quarter, Outlaw quarterback Braeden O’Dell found plenty of room to run and took the ball 85 yards for a touchdown. Blackburn would follow with a big play of his own, scoring on a 62-yard run. The Outlaws added another score late in the second quarter after O’Dell hooked up with Coffman on a 16-yard pass.

The Rockets got on the board in the third quarter after freshman Gavin Smith broke loose for a 22-yard touchdown run. St. Mary threatened to score early i the fourth, but the Outlaws forced a fumble, then got a five-play drive that was finished with a 51-yard touchdown run by Blackburn.

“We were more physical, got after it right away and we did good job of not getting off the gas pedal,” Renshaw said.

But he added, “We’ve got bigger fish to fry. We get Blanchard next week.”

Blanchard, the defending Class 3A state champions, will host the Outlaws Oct. 11.

Poll

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.
