Tishomingo turns back Konawa, 33-13

Konawa —      The Konawa Tigers received 184 yards rushing on 31 carries from Seth Walker, but committed a pair of turnovers and managed just 269 total yards in dropping a 33-13 District 2A-4 football decision to Tishomingo Thursday night.

     Konawa, which fell to 3-4 on the season and 1-3 in the district, had just two touchdowns — a 14-yard pass from Chance Yellowfish to Tanner Wood in the second quarter and a 3-yard scoring run by Colton Gentry in the fourth.

     Yellowfish had 30 passing yards while connecting on 2-of-7 attempts with the one TD. Michael Troglin caught the other pass from Yellowfish for 16 yards.

     The Tigers play at Okemah next Friday night.

Sulphur 19, Pauls Valley 14

     PAULS VALLEY – Quarterback Ryan Rackley ran for a pair of touchdowns and passed for another while Sulphur made a big defensive stand late in the game as the Bulldogs knocked off host Pauls Valley 19-14 Thursday night in a District 3A-4 football clash.

     Rackley ran for 190 yards on 27 carries and had TD runs of 3 and 41 yards while hooking up with Wyatt Jones on a short 5-yard scoring pass for the victorious Bulldogs (3-4, 2-2).

     Pauls Valley was knocking on the door late in the game, driving the ball deep into Sulphur territory. But the Bulldogs’ Tanner Watson forced a Panther fumble and teammate Cameron Babb made the recovery at the 6-yard line to turn back the Panthers’ go-ahead touchdown bid.

     The statistics were as close as the final score, as Pauls Valley had a slight 382-378 edge in total yards.

     In the passing department, Rackley was 9-of-20 passing for 123 yards with no interceptions and one TD as he accounted for 313 yards in the contest.

     Nick MaGruder caught four passes for 35 yards, and Cole Palmer ended up with three receptions for 41. Jones’ only catch was the 5-yarder for the touchdown, and Ray Trent had one grab for 41 yards.

     The Panthers took a 7-0 advantage on Junior Meave’s 6-yard scoring run and Manny Colarnales’ point-after kick with 11:39 to go in the second quarter.

     Sulphur tied it up at 7-7 on Rackley’s 3-yard run and kicked PAT with 9:03 to go before halftime.

     The Bulldogs went on top, 13-7, with 7:14 left in the third on Rackley’s short 5-yard scoring toss to Jones.

     But Pauls Valley went up 14-13 with 2:21 remaining in the third on Carter Tate’s 1-yard touchdown run and Colarnales’ kick.

     Then with 7:20 to go in the contest, Rackley busted loose a 41-yard TD run to give Sulphur the five-point margin. The 2-point conversion pass failed.

     Jace Elkins ran for 138 yards on 16 carries for the Panthers, and Tate was 8-of-9 passing for 115 yards and ran for the one score.

     The Bulldogs are at home next Friday night against Madill.
