That is one way to describe Claremore Christian’s treatment of Porum last Friday night as it racked up 30 first-quarter points on the way to a 54-8 home victory. Tyler Stephens threw three touchdown passes in the opening frame and finished with four total, completing 10 of 14 throws for 158 yards.
Peyton Abbott got some reps at quarterback as well, tossing 88 yards with a score on 6-of-8 passing.
Deaken Abbott, who was also the team’s leading rusher with 39 yards and a score on six carries, was the top target. He hauled in nine passes for 141 yards and four touchdowns. Aiden Phillips also had a receiving touchdown, as well as an interception on defense.
Ian Feary found the end zone on the ground early with 2:55 remaining in the first quarter, increasing the Warrior lead to 24-0.
Summit Christian 53, Foyil 8: The Panthers managed a second-quarter touchdown and a 2-point conversion, but that was about it.
Wyatt Austin tossed four touchdown passes – three to Jacob Langebartels – on throws of 8, 9, 49 and 47 yards while also recording a 16-yard touchdown run to help Summit Christian hand Foyil its 13th-consecutive loss. Nick Baker had the other receiving touchdown.
James Logan rushed for a touchdown and caught a score from Carson Banham.
As indicated by the score, the Panthers struggled offensively. They managed only 14 yards total on 39 plays and lost three fumbles along the way.
Foyil did, however, force two turnovers itself.
Commerce 40, Chelsea 12: Although the defense forced three turnovers, Chelsea couldn’t find the offensive success to complement those takeaways.
Without star running back Cash Ramsey, the Green Dragons were held to 93 yards rushing on 43 carries and 194 yards total. Quarterback Chase Smith, who completed 10 of 17 passes for 101 yards, scored the offense’s only points on a 1-yard keeper in the third quarter, trimming the deficit to 27-6.
Daniel Comiford, who led the team in rushing with 89 yards on 16 carries, recorded the other touchdown in the fourth on a 90-yard kickoff return, which was the final score of the game. Commerce managed a kickoff return for a touchdown as well when Eric Cunningham rumbled 82 yards to the end zone following Smith’s score.
Austin Lake was responsible for most of the Tigers’ yards, tallying 103 yards and three touchdowns on the ground via nine carries — 11.4 yards per carry —while adding another 55 through the air. He scored on runs of 44, 46 and 3 yards.
Commerce also registered touchdown runs of 18 and 68 yards.
Inola 19, Salina 12: In a special Thursday night game, it was Jace King who served as the hero for the Longhorns.
King’s 4-yard touchdown run in the third quarter served as the game-winner as Inola survived another close game to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2015. Those three victories came by a total of nine points.
King scored on a 3-yard run in the second quarter as well, finishing with 61 yards on nine carries. However, Peyton Jones led the team in that category with 102 yards and an 8-yard touchdown on 17 carries.
Jones’ score gave the Longhorns a 12-6 lead in the third, but the Wildcats responded immediately with a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Inola quarterback Tucker Ford didn’t throw any touchdown passes, but he completed 9 of his 14 throws for 87 yards.
Fort Gibson 52, Catoosa 21: Catoosa’s first offensive play of the game resulted in a pick-six, and things didn’t get much better from there.
The Indians had minus-14 yards at halftime and trailed 45-7. Colyn Treat had the team’s only touchdown of the first half, scoring on an 8-yard run with 1:40 remaining in the second quarter.
Treat managed a 12-yard touchdown run in the fourth as well, and Russell Dugger, who led Catoosa with 62 yards rushing, scored from 13 yards out with 7:02 remaining in the third.

Meanwhile, Owasso held the Tigers to 199 yards, intercepted a pass and forced seven punts.
Pryor 35, Gravette 14: Leo Lovins finished with 117 yards and three touchdowns on 12 carries, leading Pryor to a win over an Arkansas opponent.
The Tigers were so potent, in fact, they led 35-0 at halftime. Brunk Gray tossed a 63-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Belew along the way, and capped the team’s scoring with a 5-yard keeper the next possession.
Collinsville 43, Skiatook 7: Star quarterback Andrew Carney left the game early with an injury after completing 4 of 5 passes for 79 yards and a 22-yard touchdown to Oscar Hammond, but Brayden Gilkey ensured his absence wouldn’t affect the outcome.
Gilkey rushed for four touchdowns and 145 yards on 15 carries, scoring on runs of 2, 14, 17 and 3 yards. Even backup quarterback Kaden Rush got in on the action, giving Collinsville a 27-0 lead in the third quarter with an 8-yard touchdown run.
Rush finished with 55 yards through the air on 2-of-3 passing.
Lincoln Christian 49, Vian 13: It was the Easton Rogers and Max Brown show as Lincoln Christian easily handled a good Vian team.
