Game time is 6:30 p.m. for the girls with the boys contest following.

It is also homecoming night for the Boomers with ceremonies planned at halftime of the boys game.

Woodward’s boys cracked the top 10 in Class 4A this week and carry a 13-1 record into their second meeting of the season with Clinton.

In the first game, the Boomers used a big fourth quarter to pull away for a 57-45 decision. It was the first game back for Woodward after a long holiday break.

Clinton has just 2 wins this season, over Classen and McLoud. The Tornadoes have only had one other chance at a win but lost to Weatherford in overtime.

Woodward has won 5 in a row.
