Monday Morning Quarterback: Week 9

DUNCAN — Every Monday during football season, I will take some time to examine the week that was.

Playoff Bound

After nine weeks, most area teams have already determined their postseason fate. Three, however, won’t know until the final horn has sounded on the regular season if they will have a Week 11.

For Central High, it’s pretty simple, a win equals a postseason berth. Two teams in District B-2 have locked up spots, leaving Paoli, Cyril and Central High to fight for the last two. Paoli plays Geary and will more than likely win to clinch a spot, leaving Cyril and Central to duel for the final spot.

Marlow can do nothing to help or hurt itself as it plays a non-district game. The Outlaws fate will rest on Mount St. Mary (0-5 in District 3A-1). Marlow needs Mount St. Mary to upset Little Axe to get into the postseason.

Comanche’s chances are slim, but it can force a three-way tie for the final playoff spot in its district if it beats Hinton and Hobart loses to Frederick. The tiebreaker would come down margin of victory for Comanche, Hinton and Hobart.

 

Comic Relief

With Del City driving late in a close game that put the district title on the line, fans, players and refs couldn’t help but laugh at the scene taking place at midfield.

As players separated at the end of a play, two players didn’t want to separate. Check that, two players couldn’t separate.

Duncan senior lineman Derek McKnight had his fingers stuck between two bars of an opponent’s face mask, and they were in there good.

After attempts to pull out his fingers were unsuccessful, referees grabbed a screwdriver and tried to pried apart the bars on the facemask so McKnight could pull his fingers out.

The whole scene took about 2 minutes and McKnight was not penalized for illegal hands to the face. I suppose the sore pinky was punishment enough, though.

  • Duran Duran has one obstacle left: State

    Midway through her sophomore year, Comanche’s Alexis Duran had her athletic life taken away from her, but this spring she got it back in spectacular fashion.
    An ACL tear in basketball kept the three-sport star out for a full year before she got to compete again in track as a junior. Duran didn’t just show up and run, she pushed for medals and came just shy of making the state tournament, finishing one spot away by a tenth of a second.

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.
