Ada pulls away from Idabel

IDABEL —      Ada’s impressive ground attack trumped numerous offensive hiccups Friday night as the Cougars captured their first win of the football season, 41-6 over Idabel.

     The Cougars were never seriously challenged by the 3A Warriors, dashing to a 28-0 halftime lead.

     Running backs Shiloh Windsor and Jeremiah Larry, finding huge openings on the perimeter, both eclipsed the 100-yard plateau and scored two touchdowns apiece.

     Windsor racked up 178 yards on the night, while Larry added 132. Windsor averaged over nine yards per carry, and Larry was even better at 11 per tote.

     But Cougar head coach Matt Weber saw a few things he didn’t like. Ada coughed up three fumbles, threw an early interception and was penalized 13 times for 112 yards in a hot and muggy game that took almost three hours to complete.

     “We had some lulls,” said Weber. “We’ve got to get those turnovers fixed.”

     Still, Ada ran up and down the field for most of the night with 432 yards of net offense, compared to 178 for the home team, which drops to 0-2.

     “It’s nice to be back in the win column,” said Weber.

     The Cougars made it to Idabel’s 6 on the opening drive before turning it over on downs. Ada’s next drive ended when Tryce Prince’s pass was picked off by safety Boochie Threatt, who is also Idabel’s quarterback.

     Ada’s third possession lasted just three plays, with a lost fumble near midfield. But the Cougars took control after that.

     They covered 90 yards in 1:20 with Larry sailing through a huge hole on the right side for a 24-yard TD run. That score came with just seven seconds left in the opening quarter.

     Ada’s next drive covered 40 yards in just three plays. Windsor went around the left side for an 11-yard TD run.

     Jacob Reed recovered a fumble on the kickoff return. Five snaps later, Windsor again tested the left side of the defense and strolled in for a 12-yard score.

     Todd Penick made the PAT – he was a perfect 6-for-6 on the night, although he misfired on a field goal attempt – as the Cougars stretched their lead to 21-0 at the 6:13 mark.

     Ada then scored on its fourth consecutive possession, with Windsor doing most of the damage (four carries for 31 yards). But Larry made it across the goal line on a 3-yard carry for a 28-0 advantage.

     Osahwv Frazier intercepted a desperation pass in the end zone as the first half ended.

     Ada hit a cold spell in the third quarter, with lost fumbles on its first two possessions. Idabel also mixed in a touchdown in that span – a 14-yard run around the right end by tailback Keontric Ricks at the 9:17 mark.

     Twice in that quarter, the Cougars were stopped inside Idabel’s 5 on fourth down.

     “We just didn’t close the door on them,” said Weber.

     But Ada also made a goal-line stand as Halen Ogles, with his heels in the end zone, recovered a fumble on the first play of the fourth quarter at the 2.

     After a Cory Kilby 57-yard punt pinned Idabel at the 3, Kane Moore recovered a fumble in the end zone for a 35-6 cushion.

     The Cougars’ last scoring drive covered 24 yards in four plays. Prince, eluding a rusher from the edge, calmly rolled back to his left and flipped an 11-yard   scoring pass to Montrell Black. Prince completed 10-of-13 passes for 101 yards, while Black finished with six catches for 64 yards.

     Ada actually won the turnover battle 5-4, as Idabel lost four fumbles and threw and interception.

     Ada travels to Durant in Week 3 for its final non-district matchup. The Lions edged Ardmore 9-7 Friday night.
