Sports THE JOURNAL, Thursday, November 12, 2015 Ba PREGAME Continued from Page B1 Bulldogs owning a 5—3 series advantage. Meeker has a three-game winning streak dating back during the 1991—1993 seasons. P—T’s last win came in 1990 with a 33-20 decision. The first meeting was in 1933 with Meeker winning 14-6. The series resumed the first time in 1978 with a 28- 14 P-T win at Wilhite field. The two schools played annually through the 1985 season. That was followed by a four-year hiatus before the two teams played from 1990-1993. “We are proud to be in the playoffs and like our draw,” said head coach Bruce Wil- liams earlier this week. “Meeker is good at what they do and it will be a tough matchup for us. All the bad teams checked in their gear today (Monday) so we’ll have to come out and play our best game of the season.” The Demons are riding a three-game winning streak and have won four of their last five games. In that final three-game stretch, P-T has scored 110 points and have given up 23 football. It’s safe to say the Demons are playing some of their best football at this point in the season. A big part of that is the rushing of senior tailback Chrys Bell. Following last week’s win at Blackwell, Bell lacks just eight yards to reach the 1,000—yard plateau for the season. After not seeing any action in the season—opener against Lindsay, he had limited carries against Sequoyah—Clare- more and McLoud with two in each game and 12 against Harrah. His first starting assignment came at Cushing and he took advantage of the sit- uation by rushing for 119 yards on 26 car- ries. He followed that with a season-high 232 yards against Oklahoma Centennial on 34 carries. Bell was limited to 26 yards on 11 carries against Heritage Hall but followed with 173 yards on 18 carries against Kingfisher. And what has helped open up the running game has been the passing of junior quarterback Autry Westfall. Since returning from an injury suffered late in the McLoud game, Westfall had already thrown for a season-high 204 yards on 20-of-35 passing. After missing three games, he’s connected on 23—of—49 passes for 308 yards and five touchdowns and two interceptions. For the season, West- fall is 57-of—121 for 743 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has also thrown four interceptions . Westfall has used his feel effectively rushing for 333 yards in the final three games. His season-high is 162 yards on 17 carries came against Kingfisher. Senior Bryce Wells is the leading receiver with 34 catches for 489 yards and PIONEERS Continued from Page B1 field triumph over Bixby’s home turf to open district six touchdowns. Sophomore J axon Swink follows with 23 catches for 290 yards and three scores. Swink has been the hottest receiver of late with a season—high five catches against Blackwell for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, senior defensive linemen Daniel Wall and Jacob Gould lead the way with 59 and 58 total tackles, respectively. Gould has 11 tackles for losses with nine of those quarterback sacks. Wall has five quarterback sacks. Bell is third on the team in tackles with 54 to go along with three tackles for losses and two quarterback sacks. Senior Dillon Longbrake has also logged 51 stops. Meeker finished the regular season with an 8-2 overall record and was 4-2 in the District 3A-2 race. The Bulldogs had district signature wins over Douglass and John Marshall. The two losses came to Bethany and Blanchard. The offense this season has centered around senior running back Jake Standlee. after piloting the offense as quarterback the past three seasons. And he has made the most of the opportunities to carry the football. “He is big, strong, and fast and reminds you of a Jake Peyton in a bigger body,” Williams said. “He’s fast and hard to handle.” Out of the run—oriented Wing-T offense, Standlee has tallied 2067 yards on 261 carries through 10 games. His season-high is 288 yards on 38 carries and two scores against Bethany. He was held to 80 yards on 20 carries against Blanchard. Alto— gether, he’s had six games with over 200 yards of rushing this season. Michael Nolen, son of head coach Lonny Nolen, has had success as quarter— back throwing the ball. He’s completed 65-of-123 passes for 1,046 yards and 14 touchdowns. He’s also thrown eight interceptions. Levi Bagwell is the team’s leading receiver with 20 catches for 51 1 yards and seven touchdowns. Standlee has 29 catches for 428 yards and four scores. V The defense returned seven starters from last year’s 6-4 team. Linebacker Dakota Jackson is the leading tackler with 56 total tackles. Defensive lineman Adrian Wolford follows with 48 stops. Here’s a look at elsewhere around 3A-1 with their 3A-2 opponents. District champion Heirtage Hall will host No. 4 Blanchard. Runner—up Cushing will host Douglass and No. 4 finisher Kingfisher will be at John Marshall. eral players against Bixby, defending Class 6AII State Champions last Friday. Sand Springs’ 5—4 record is deceiving since the San- dites had to forfeit two early season wins over Tulsa Hale and Enid because it used an ineligible player. Sand Springs features talented defensive and offensive lines and a potent ground attack.

But, since that loss the Sandites have steadily improved, defeating Cla- remore (27-7), Sapulpa (44-10), Ponca City (44—21) and Muskogee (34-10). Unbeaten and No. 1 ranked Tulsa Washington used a field goal at the end to trim the Sandites, 17-14, prior to the win over Bixby.

The Maroons scored on the first play of the final period on a 20-yard touchdown pass. The extra point kick failed leaving the score 27-9 at the 11:52 mark of the period. The Demons scored their final touchdown on the ensuing drive. With the help of a personal foul on Blackwell on the kickoff, P-T started the drive from its own 49-yard line. Four straight runs by Bell moved the ball to the Maroons’ 29-yard line. Four plays later, Westfall tossed his career-high fourth TD pass to receiver Bryce Wells to cover the final 19 yards of the drive. Aldridge added his fourth extra point kick for the 34-9 advantage with 8:29 left in the game. Blackwell’s final score came against P-Treserves.
