Eagles’ Season Comes to an End Against OCA

Similar to Watonga’s regularseason meeting with the Oklahoma Christian Academy Eagles, it was the Eaglessquad from Edmond who ran away with the victory in the secondround matchup of Class A Playoffs on Friday, November 17.

OCA (11-1, 5-1) traveled to Watonga led by its two-headed monster, seniors Tommy Imbu and Dre Hill, who were a big part in the Eagles 48-7 victory, as they have been all season. Imbu finished with a game-high 150 yards rushing and two touchdowns (8.3 yards per rush) while Hill came up just short of the century mark with 98 yards (8.9 yards per rush) but finished with a game-high three touchdowns on the ground.

District Champs

The Eagles capped off an incredible run to win their fifth straight game and sixth game in their last seven games as they defeated Sayre 47-21 to win their first District Championship since the 2010 season. In 2010, the Eagles finished district play (2A-1) with a 9-1 record overall and 6-0 in district play before losing in the first round of the playoffs to Crooked Oak 46-34.

 

However, this season, the Eagles finished district play with a 5-1 record and a 6-4 record overall, and if not for a late collapse against Merritt in their first district game of the year, the Eagles would be 6-0 in district play. In the end, the loss proved inconsequential as Cordell defeated Merritt 38-12 to help the Eagles secure the District Title. The 2017 Watonga football squad will get a chance to write their own playoff story starting this Friday night against Okeene as Watonga hosts the Whippets in the playoff opener at 7:30 p.m.

The Eagles Inch Closer to District Title

With a playoff spot already secured, the Watonga Eagles football team moved one step closer to a possible District Title with a huge 21-8 victory on the road over the Hollis Tigers last Friday night. The Eagles can finish no worse than third in the final District A-2 standings after winning four straight games and five of their last six games heading into the final week of the season.

The Eagles will still need some help in order to win the District A-2 Title as the Eagles remain tied for first with the Merritt Oilers and Cordell Blue Devils heading into the final week of the regular season at 4-1. Since Merritt owns the tiebreaker head-to-head against Watonga, the Eagles will need a win versus Sayre this Friday in Watonga along with a loss by Merritt against Cordell. Since Watonga defeated Cordell earlier in the season, the Eagles would finish with the District Title if Cordell and Watonga finished the season tied at 5-1 in District A-2 play.

Eagles Set for Home Tilt with Sayre for Last District Game

The Eagle football team returns home to Watonga Friday evening for the final game of the 2017 regular season. Friday night’s game despite a lopsided matchup will certainly have playoff implications for Watonga as the Eagles need to come away from the game with a victory to secure a potential district title and a home playoff game regardless of how the Merritt and Cordell game goes.

The other Eagles (Sayre), have had quite the difficult season thus far as they have one win in district play (1-4) and just three wins on the season overall (3-6). In district play Sayre has been outscored 60-194, which equates to 12 PPG on offense, while yielding 38.8 PPG on defense. Over the past three weeks, Sayre has been outscored 119-14, including a pair of shutouts to Cordell and Hollis. Sayre’s lone win came in overtime against Hinton, 34-28, a game in which the Eagles blew a three touchdown lead late in the fourth quarter before escaping with a win in overtime.
