The biggest game of the year just got bigger for the Ada Cougars. Though the high-powered Cougars have displayed their wares all year long, the lack of quality opponents stifled much of the statewide publicity. That ended Monday with the naming of the Ada-Oklahoma City Douglass game for the District 4A-2 championship as the No. 1 game in the state by The Oklahoman, overshadowing even the Deer Creek at McGuinness contest, also for the title in 5A-2.
Ada, No. 4 in the state, and Douglass, No. 6. are both unbeaten in district play and square off for the championship Friday evening at Moses F. Miller Stadium in Oklahoma City with a rare 7 p.m. kickoff. The new Miller Stadium opened late in the 2007 season.
Ada is also unbeaten on the season, while Douglass has opening losses to 2A No. 5 Millwood (8-1) and 6A Tulsa Washington (5-4).
From the opener with normally tough Ardmore to Idabel, Durant and District 4A-2, Ada has roared past all challengers by close to a 50-12 average. Douglass has averaged 33.4 points and an even stingier defense, 10.2.
It will also be the rubber match for two of the most prestigious programs in the state over the decades.
