Sixth-graders gather for all-star game in Marlow

MARLOW — Stephens County Youth Football League sixth-graders got a sampling of what it will be like playing junior high football.

The young players came together at Outlaw Stadium for an all-star game Monday night.

The league plays the bulk of its games at Abe Razien Park in Duncan, at which the fields are 80 yards long and 40 yards wide. The all-star game was the first time the sixth-graders played on a 100-yard long field.

The Marlow Outlaws and Woodrow Wilson Hornets combined to form the Marlow team, while the Plato Pirates and Horace Mann Falcons combined to form the Duncan team. It was a competitive game with just eight points separating the two teams going into the final period.

Marlow then scored twice in the fourth quarter to seal a 36-14 victory.

Following the game, youth football league president Stan Morris praised the players for a great game and their good sportsmanship.

“We will be watching you all in the crowds on Friday one day,” Morris told the players.

Marlow’s Peyton Ladon scored on a pair of runs — one for two yards and the other for six — in the second quarter. Following his second score, Donovan Jackson ran the ball for a two-point conversion. That gave Marlow a 14-0 lead.

Duncan scored on its next possession, courtesy of a 5-yard run by Jaivian Dangerfield. Marlow answered quickly with Tyler New returning the kickoff 75 yards for a touchdown, with Laden running the two-point conversion.

But Dangerfield answered right back with a 62-yard sprint to the end zone. Jaxon Gregston then passed to Tag Allen for a two-point conversion.

In the fourth quarter, Laden returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown, followed by Jordan Duncan running the two-point conversion. Late in the game, Laden passed to New for a 27-yard touchdown.

Laden was named Marlow’s most valuable player on offense while Seth Aguiler was named the team’s defensive MVP. For Duncan, Dangerfield was the MVP on offense, and Brayden Hancock got defensive MVP.

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.
