Mustangs go for playoff berth

ENID, Okla. —  Pioneer can secure its first playoff spot since 2006 with a win. The winner will finish fourth in District A-3. Both teams are Cinderella stories. Pioneer started the season 0-7, but came back with wins over Carnegie and Crossings Christian. Minco has won its last three games after losing its first three district games. Minco quarterback Tyler Mitchum has thrown for 1,834 yards and 17 touchdowns. Pioneer quarterback Jett Jobe accounted for three touchdowns, including a 95-yard run against Crossings Christian. Minco leads the series 2-0, including a 62-14 win last season.

Chisholm (2-3, 5-4)  at Tonkawa (3-2, 4-4) — The victor goes to the playoffs. The loser stays home. Chisholm is seeking its first postseason appearance since 2002. Tonkawa leads the series 5-3 and has won the past four meetings.

Garber (6-2, 7-2) at Medford (1-7, 1-8) — Medford is coming off its first win of the season, 30-22 over Waukomis, last week. Garber has clinched third place in District B-1. The Wolverines have scored 140 points over the past two weeks. Medford leads the series 16-13 since 1970, but Garber won the last meeting, 12-6 in 2009.

Canton (2-6, 3-6) at Waukomis (0-8, 1-8) — Waukomis’ seniors play their last home game at Lovell Field. Canton allowed a season-high 67 points in a 67-34 loss to Pond Creek-Hunter last week. Canton leads the series 7-5.

Covington-Douglas (4-4, 5-4) at Seiling (3-5, 3-6) — Covington-Douglas, coming off an upset loss to Merritt last week, will need some help to make the playoffs. They must beat Seiling and hope Ringwood beats Merritt. Gage Smith has scored 22 touchdowns for Covington-Douglas. Seiling is coming off losses to Pond Creek-Hunter (47-6) and Laverne (50-0). The series is tied 1-1.

Cherokee (7-0, 9-0) at Kremlin-Hillsdale (2-5, 2-7) — The Chiefs, with a win, would assure themselves of their second undefeated regular season in the past three years. Cherokee clinched the District C-3 championship with a 64-16 win over Prue last week, the eighth time this season Cherokee has scored 50 or more points in a game this season. Josh Argraves has scored 17 touchdowns for the Chiefs. Tanner Bowman has scored 17 touchdowns, while passing for 13 more. Kremlin-Hillsdale leads the series 5-3 since 1988, but the Chiefs have won the past two meetings.

    Two games, just over 12 percent of the 16-game regular season. Two games for hitting a woman hard enough to knock her out cold.
    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
