Broncs looking for more consistency

ENID, Okla. — Kremlin-Hillsdale’s 62 points against Waukomis Friday were the most points by a Broncs team since a 64-28 victory over Bartlesville Wesleyan on Oct. 15, 2009.

And the Broncs still lost 68-62.

First-year head coach Jeremy Breshears doesn’t see a hangover from that game when Kremlin-Hillsdale visits Deer Creek-Lamont Friday in the District C-3 opener for both teams.

“We have good morale, we’re pumped up and ready to play ball,’’ Breshears said. “Every Friday night is a new game for us.’’

The Waukomis game had a definite Dr. Jekyl-Mr. Hyde feel to it. The Broncs trailed 34-8 at halftime, only to score 54 points in the second half.

“I told the boys we have to play four quarters, not two,’’ Breshears said. “The big thing was that we played with heart and intensity the whole game and didn’t give up. We just dug ourselves too big of a hole to get out of.’’

The Broncs did all that without tailback J.J. Stubblefield, who went out early after getting a “stinger’’ in his neck. He is expected back against DCLA.

Hayden Bonine ran back two kickoffs for scores. Quarterback Andre Lizar and fullback Cass Bittle ran well, thanks to the offensive line opening up big holes, Breshears said.

“We played well as a team on offense,’’ Breshears said. “We did a lot of things right.’’

Defensively, the problem was simple.

“We didn’t tackle well enough,’’ Breshears said.

DCLA opened its season with a 56-6 loss to Class B’s No. 2 Pond Creek-Hunter. The Eagles, a year ago, were trounced by the Panthers 60-14, but came back to beat K-H 52-12 the next week.

“DCLA has a lot of tradition, they are accustomed to winning,’’ Breshears said. “I told the boys we just need to get better at what we do and just play football.’’

The Eagles have 11 straight wins over the Broncs. Kremlin-Hillsdale’s last win in the series came in 2001, 18-14.

Kremlin-Hillsdale leads the series 17-14.

The district opener may have a little more urgency with the district down to seven teams.

“I don’t know if it’s any bigger than any of the other games,’’ Breshears said, “but each game is more important now. There’s less room to stumble.’’
