Stratford rushes past Caddo, 25-13

Stratford —      Two Stratford running backs — Kyle Qualls and Kyler Wade — ran for over 100 yards as the Bulldogs successfully opened District A-5 football action with a 25-13 victory over Caddo Friday night.

     Qualls gained 128 yards on 17 carries and scored a touchdown off a 48-yard run, while Wade netted 125 yards on just 10 attempts and scored TDs off runs of 8 and 4 yards.

     Quarterback Chase Bradstreet also had a 1-yard TD plunge for Stratford, which improved to 3-1 on the season and went to 1-0 in district play.

     The Bulldogs trailed 7-6 at halftime but scored 19 unanswered points before Caddo picked up its final score of the night with 7:40 to go off a 70-yard pass from Wyatt Wright to Corey Savoy.

     “It’s always good to get a district-opening win. We came out and played a great second half. We’ve just got to figure out how to play four quarters,” said Stratford head coach Michael Blackburn.

     All 304 of the Bulldogs’ total yards came on the ground as they compiled 12 first downs. Meanwhile, Caddo was limited to 187 yards of total offense with 106 coming on the ground.

     Defensively for Stratford, Montie Thomas registered 12 tackles and had a fumble recovery, while Isaac Miller ended up with nine tackles and recovered Caddo’s other lost fumble. Kyle Wright finished with eight tackles for the winners.

     The Bulldogs opened the scoring on Wade’s 8-yard run with 9:42 to go. The point-after kick failed.

     Caddo then took the one-point halftime advantage after a Tanner Grace 6-yard TD run with 10:41 to go in the second quarter. The PAT was good as Caddo led 7-6.

     Wade’s 4-yard scoring run with 10:44 remaining in the third put Stratford up by a 12-7 count.

     A little over three minutes later, the Bulldogs padded the lead with the long 48-yard scamper by Qualls. Clay Armstrong’s PAT made it 19-7 with 7:18 left in the third.

     Then in the fourth, Bradstreet’s 1-yard run closed out the Stratford scoring with 8:57 to go, creating a 25-7 cushion.

     The Bulldogs are home again next Friday night as they entertain Marietta for homecoming.

  • Whitworth resets Ada's 3-point record

    As senior Walker Whitworth was bombing in the final five 3-point shots of his remarkable Ada High career, he was resetting the school’s triples record at 151. Across the way at the A-Town Barber Shop, barber Erick Gray did not even know he owned the record of 146, much less that someone was breaking it.
