Chicks scalped by Warriors

Tuttle, Rush Springs drop first games

GRADY COUNTY —

The first game of Chickasha’s football season was more like taking a big, oddly shaped, bitter pill and having to swallow it first thing in the morning, as rivals Anadarko showed why they are the team to beat in 3A with a 73-14 demolition job.

RJ Sink, one of Oklahoma’s top high school running backs, put on a show with 128 yards off 13 carries and two touchdowns to his name. He was almost impossible for the Chickasha defense to handle.

Anadarko began the game predictably, handing the ball off to Sink. After a few short runs, he broke through the Chickasha defense and 40 yards downfield to the Fightin Chicks’ 5 yard line. Later it was Sink again, who broke through for the opening touchdown. It was 7-0 with just over two minutes gone.

Chickasha’s defense was able to get after Sink and quarterback Brandon Pollard on Anadarko’s next drive. Lindbergh Carey, who had switched to linebacker, ran down the Warriors quarterback for a five yard loss. That forced them to try a fourth down pass that was batted down.

But Chickasha’s offense was unable to move the ball far and forced to punt. Taking over from the Chickasha 47, Sink once again ran amok and eventually in for a 12 yard touchdown to make it 13-0 with 10:49 in the second quarter.

Strong Warrior defense proved ruthless once again, and this time they helped the offense take over from the Chickasha 32. They waisted little time before wide receiver Josh Parton ran seven yards on a wrap-around rout and in for the touchdown. Another missed extra point made the score 19-0 Anadarko.

Another short field for Anadarko gave Pollard his first rushing touchdown of the game with a 21 yard run to make the score 26-0. Then, Chickasha’s offense finally got something going. A 28 yard pass to Carey on third down kept the drive alive, and a roughing the kicker call on the Chickasha punt saw some luck go the visitors’ way for once. Unfortunately that luck turned around on them, with Chickasha fumbling the ball and the Warriors taking advantage.
