Minco wins third straight, eyes playoffs

— The Minco High School football team won its third game in a row, beating Burns Flat-Dill City on Friday night.

The Bulldogs beat Burns Flat 42-14, and improved to 5-4 this season and 2-3 in district play.

Quarterback Tyler Mitchum went 17-for-23 for 219 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.

Ringo Garrett carried the ball 10 times for 68 yards and he ran for one touchdown, a 22-yarder.

Jacob Overton caught seven passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one interception.

Joseph Mitchell and Brandon Fletcher also had one interception each, and Bryce Main was the team's leading tackler with 12.

Head coach Clint Warren attributed the team's recent success to hard work, and also a bit of an easier schedule.

"Not playing Cashion, Crescent and teams like that," Warren said. "We're just working hard every day to get better."

With one game remaining in the season, Minco faces a must-win situation against Pioneer. The Bulldogs are fourth in their district, and need to win in order to make the playoffs.

"We're focused on just winning, because we've got to win," Warren said. "We're fourth in the district right now, but if we don't win Friday we're out."

He said the players weren't feeling any added pressure leading up to the game.

"They're fine, they're too young to know the difference," Warren said.

Minco will play Pioneer on the road at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
