Inola pounds Okmulgee, 43-14

INOLA — Inola senior quarterback Mason Stookey got the Longhorns back in the win column Friday night, scoring four touchdowns in a 43-14 win over Okmulgee.

The Longhorns opened District 3A-6 play with a bang, relying heavily on the legs of Stookey.

Stookey put the Longhorns ahead 6-0 in the first quarter on a 1-yard touchdown run.

The Longhorns’ lead increased to 12-0 on Koltyn Morel’s 1-yard touchdown run.

Shortly thereafter, the Longhorns forced a safety in the end zone when the snapped sailed over the head of the Okmulgee punter to make it 14-0.

Stookey’s second touchdown in the first half — another 1-yard run — carried the Longhorns into halftime with an impressive 20-0 lead.

Okmulgee finally got on the board in the third quarter as Brad Bell scampered in for a 6-yard touchdown run to cut the deficit to 20-6.

An 18-yard touchdown pass from Bell to Kyle Shores to open the fourth quarter narrowed Inola’s lead to 20-12.

The Longhorns, however, tallied 23 points in the fourth quarter to pull away from Okmulgee.

Stookey’s 3-yard touchdown run and Nick Ariaz’s 28-yard interception return for a touchdown increased the Longhorns’ lead to 35-14.

Stookey’s final touchdown — a 40-yard run — pushed the Inola lead to 43-12.

Okmulgee’s final points of the game came on a two-point safety late in the game.

The Longhorns improved to 1-0 in district and will return to action on Friday night at Hilldale.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
