The fourth-ranked Ada Cougars will face a team with a little swag in their step when the Tecumseh Savages visit Norris Field for a Week 5 District 4A-2 matchup Friday night.
Tecumseh (2-1) suffered its first loss of the season last week — a 40-20 setback to No. 8 Douglass. But the Savages played the Trojans — one of the Class 4A preseason favorites — to a 20-20 deadlock at halftime. The Savages still trailed by a single score heading into the fourth quarter before Douglass finally pulled away for a 40-20 victory.
"They're playing with a lot of confidence right now. They just played Douglass 20-20 at half," Ada head coach Matt Weber said. "They're excited. It was a really good game. It looked like Douglass kind of finally wore them down. But up to that point it was nip and tuck."
Tecumseh head coach Greg George was proud of his team's moral victory over the highly-touted OKC squad.
