Boomers push Anadarko to limit

Warriors escape with 18-15 victory on home field

Woodward, Okla. — ANADARKO – R. J. Sink's 3-yard touchdown run gave the top-ranked Warriors an 18-15 win over No. 8 Woodward in District 4A-1 football here Thursday night.

Sink's score, his second of the game, allowed the Warriors to turn away the Boomers determined upset bid.

Woodward led 7-6 at halftime, then took the lead again with 5 minutes left in the game on a 22-yard pass from Kale Hixon to Kaleb Roach. Hixon passed to Austin Ludwyck for the 2-point conversion and 15-12 Boomer lead.

Anadarko, though, answered with a touchdown drive and got the score with 58 seconds left.

The Warriors improved to 7-0 overall and 4-0 on the season and quite possibly wrapped up the district title. The Warriors have games left with Piedmont, Weatherford and Elgin and will be solid favorites in all of them.

The Boomers are 5-2 on the season and 3-1 in the district. If form holds - they will be favored over Cache and Elk City the next two weeks - the Boomers are in line to host Clinton in week 10 with second place in the district and the chance to host a playoff game up for grabs.

On Thursday, Anadarko scored first as Sink went in from 10 yards out in the first period. The extra point kick was blocked.

The Boomers answered late in the first half on an 18-yard run by Hixon. Jason Alexander kicked the extra point.

Anadarko regained the lead in the third quarter on a 50-yard pass from Brandon Pollard to Josh Parton. A 2-point conversion attempt failed and the Warriors led 12-7.

It stayed that way until the fourth quarter fireworks.

The Boomers finished the night with 191 yards in total offense while Anadarko had 341 yards.

Woodward goes to Cache next Friday then will be home for the final 2 regular season games against Elk City and Clinton.

In another district game on Thursday, Weatherford hammered Elk City 44-14. The Eagles improved to 2-2 in the district. Elgin also improved to 2-2 with a 44-34 victory over Cache.

Clinton plays tonight at Piedmont.
