Offensive line key to Outlaw victory

MARLOW — By Bob Morris

The offensive line and special teams were both big factors in a decisive season-opening win for the Marlow Outlaws in Friday night high school football action.

The Outlaws won on their home field 61-21.

Marlow coach Rob Renshaw said the O-line’s play allowed the Outlaws to run the football well. Trey Coffman finished with 254 yards rushing on 19 carries and scored four touchdowns.

And then there were the special teams play that made a big difference.

“We had a punt blocked, a punt return for a touchdown and a kick return for a touchdown,” he said. “We were hitting on all cylinders.”

Quarterback Braden O’Dell didn’t have go to the air that much, but when he did, he was effective. He completed 4-of-7 passes for 56 yards and one touchdown pass.

Kagan Blackburn scored three touchdowns, two on rushes and one on a 68-yard kickoff return.

In other area action:

Central High 36, Mountain View-Gotebo 20

Bronchos coach Keith Burton said his team came out “a little too up for the game” and it resulted in the Tigers scoring on their opening drive.

But after that, Central High took control of the game.

“We settled down after that,” Burton said. “We played better once we got over that first series on defense.”

The Bronchos led 30-6 at halftime.

“For our first game, we played pretty well,” Burton said. “We kept our composure when things weren’t going well.”

Quarterback Kade Taylor threw for 223 yards on 17-of-28 passing with two touchdowns. He added 35 yards rushing on nine carries and two scores.

Kevin Harris rushed for 48 yards on eight carries and one touchdown and caught five balls for 58 yards. John Repp led in receiving with 134 yards on seven receptions and a pair of scores.

Empire 48, Snyder 12

As Bulldog coach Tony Roberts put it, “I told our kids at halftime that I don’t think we played very good” even though the Bulldogs led 48-0.

“It was a little sloppy early,” Roberts said. “We turned the ball over on the opening kickoff.”

The Bulldog defense made the difference, giving up just one big play for 60 yards, but otherwise keeping Snyder in check.

Roberts said he likes the attitude and work ethic the players bring to the team.

“We got 28 kids and I like every one of them, from the freshmen on up,” he said.

Dylan Twigg rushed for 237 yards on 13 carries with three touchdowns, including a 94-yard touchdown run. Steven Price added 137 yards rushing on 16 carries with two touchdowns.

The Bulldogs had 476 yards of total offense, with 412 of those yards coming from the ground game.

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.
