CLINTON – The Tornadoes made quick work of Woodward in District 4A-1 football action at the Tornado Bowl Friday.

Clinton rolled to a 35-0 halftime lead and defeated the Boomers 42-7, sending Woodward to its fifth consecutive loss. The loss also eliminated the Boomers from playoff consideration. Clinton will face Elk City next week with the fourth playoff spot for the district up for grabs.

The Tornadoes scored on their opening two possessions, then got a punt return for a score, and turned a Boomer fumble into another touchdown for a 28-0 lead midway through the second quarter.

Another score came with two minutes left in the half.

The final Tornado touchdown came on the first possession of the second half.

The Boomers avoided the shutout with a 27-yard run by Caleb Reddin that capped a 99-yard, 12-play drive.

That came on the first play of the fourth quarter and neither team really threatened again.

Marquiz Simpkins had a pair of touchdowns for Clinton and Daniel Lopez, Deonte Barker, Wyatt Eaton and Austin Maine each scored one.

The Boomers, 3-6 overall and 1-5 in the district, will try and end their season on a positive note next week as they host Cache for Senior Night.

In other 4A-1 action Friday, Anadarko beat Newcastle to win the district title, Elgin upset Weatherford and Elk City beat Cache.
