OOLOGAH — The Oologah Mustangs tallied 45 points in the first half and raced past the Miami Warriors, 52-13 Thursday night in District 4A-3 action.
After both teams played to a 7-7 tie in the opening stages of the first quarter, Oologah managed to roll off 38 unanswered points (including 28 in the opening quarter) to lead 45-7 at halftime.
