Boomers fall to Weatherford

Woodward, Okla. — A disastrous first half put the Boomers in a hole they couldn’t dig out of against Weatherford on Friday.

The Eagles took advantage of 3 turnovers and a couple of other miscues to build a 28-0 first half lead and went on the defeat Woodward 28-7 at Boomer Stadium.

Woodward saw its 2-game winning streak end while the Eagles snapped a 3-game losing skid. Both teams are 1-1 in District 4A-1.

Blaine Whitson did the most damage for the Eagles, scoring 3 touchdowns. Whitson scored on a 54-yard reverse, a 40-yard fumble return and a 25-yard pass from Garrett Gaunt during the Eagles big first half. Jacob Hoffman had the Eagles first touchdown on a 10-yard run.

The Boomers turned the ball over on 3 straight possessions to start the game and Weatherford scored each time, going on touchdown drives of 54 and 86 yards and scoring directly on the fumble return.

Weatherford’s other score came on a 35-yard drive after a 6-yard Boomer punt.

The second half was a different story as the Boomer defense limited the Eagles to just 24 yards and one first down while the offense got something going for a while.

After the Eagles failed to convert a fourth-down near midfield, the Boomers went 43 yards in 6 plays to score. A 30-yard pass from Jake Hughes to Kaleb Roach was the big play, then Dakota Taylor powered in from the 3-yard line for the touchdown. Jesus Munoz added the extra point, making it 28-7.

Roach picked off a pass on the Eagles next possession and the Boomers drove inside the 15 but gave up the ball on downs at the 9. That was their last real scoring chance.

Woodward, 2-3 overall, will travel to Elgin next Friday.
