Laverne, Sharon-Mutual stay perfect on year

Woodward, Okla. — Laverne and Sharon-Mutual continued their perfect campaigns with victories Friday in week 8 of the high school football season.

Laverne had little trouble in beating Merritt 46-0 in a game that ended early in the third period.

Sharon-Mutual, though, had one of its toughest tests of the season, rallying from a halftime deficit to win 34-22 at Balko.

Here is a roundup of area action on Friday.

Laverne 46, Merritt 0

Tucker Rolf hit Dalton Birch for a 30-yard touchdown pass just 2 minutes into the game to start a 24-point first quarter that pretty much decided the issue.

Rolf scored twice in the quarter on runs of 30 and 4 yards.

In the second quarter, Birch scored on a 57-yard pass from Rolf and Trevor Harris got free on a 35-yard touchdown run.

The final score came on a fumble recovery for a touchdown by Lane Fanning at the 10:42 mark of the third quarter.

The Tigers rolled up over 400 yards in offense. Merritt had 76 total yards.

Both teams had a touchdown wiped out by a holding penalty.

Sharon-Mutual 34, Balko 22

The Trojans trailed Balko 8-6 at halftime, but scored on every possession in the second half to win the game.

Jordan Busch scored Dakota Jackson got the conversion for an 8-0 Balko lead in the second quarter.

The Trojans answered on a  10-yard run by Cooper Free, but missed the conversion.

Justin Custar's 30-yard run in the third period gave the Trojans the lead for good. Free scored from the one to make it 20-8 early in the fourth quarter.

Balko answered with a 1-yard run from Busch, but the Trojans came right back on Free's 20-yard run.

Grady Frantz scored to cut the Sharon-Mutual lead to 28-22, but Free added a late score for the final margin.

Sharon-Mutual's powerful rushing attack rolled up 386 yards not the night and the Trojans were able to control the clock in the second half.

Sharon-Mutual is tied for the top in District C-1 with Shattuck, a 54-8 winner over Goodwell on Thursday night.
