Marlow football took care of business against Little Axe in a 55-21 victory Friday.
All that stands in the Outlaws’ (4-3, 2-3) way of that fourth playoff spot is Bridge Creek. The domination allowed Marlow coach Rob Renshaw to not ask too much from his offensive players as senior running back Trey Coffman had nine carries and sophomore quarterback Braeden O’Dell only ran three times. Combine that with Kagan Blackburn and the return of Kelby Richardson, it was a long day for Little Axe (3-5, 1-3) on defense.
“We’ve been doing that all year,” Renshaw said. “They can’t just focus on one person. That helps makes our offense a lot more diversified.”
Coffman finished with 55 rushing yards on just nine carries with a touchdown. Blackburn was the shining star with more than 100 rushing yards. O’Dell worked his magic to get the team up and down the field, according to Coffman, and the team took advantage of three early turnovers to win easily.
Logan Knox returned an interception for a touchdown to start the game, which propelled the team off to its fast start.
“He was pumped,” Coffman said. “He came out of nowhere and just picked it. Everyone got in front of him and led him all the way down.”
Up next for the Outlaws is that game against Bridge Creek (1-6, 0-4). The Bobcats have scored just six points in their last three district games and lost 56-6 to Little Axe two weeks ago.
