The Fightin’ Chicks take the field prior to their game against Cache on Friday in Chickasha.

Chickasha entered Friday’s game 1-0 in a District 4A-1 that seemed wide open after the first week of district play.

The Fightin’ Chicks looked to get to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 in district play Friday with a win over the Cache Bulldogs at home in Chickasha. The Chicks led 13-0 after one quarter and 20-17 at halftime, but Cache ended up pulling away for the 38-20 victory.

The game could not have started any better for the Fightin’ Chicks, a team that has been strong when it comes to getting turnovers. Chickasha earned another turnover on Cache’s first offensive drive of the game, and JT Richie returned a fumble for a touchdown. 

Chickasha found itself leading 7-0 early in the game.

After the defense earned another stop, it was the offense’s turn to score points. On a drive that took up a good chunk of the first quarter, Cayss Lowery found Jordan Jackson in the end zone to give Chickasha a 13-0 lead.

Chickasha held that 13-0 lead heading to the second quarter.

But the second quarter turned to somewhat of a back-and-forth affair when it came to scoring points.

Cache got on the board with a quarterback sneak, but Lowery found Kaden Stephenson behind the defense to answer.

Trailing 20-7, Cache got a touchdown pass and managed to get within six points. The Bulldogs added a field goal to make the score 20-17 in favor of Chickasha at halftime.

The two teams nearly went without a touchdown in the third quarter, but Cache was able to take advantage of a Chickasha turnover.

The Bulldogs capped off the drive with a short touchdown run, taking a 24-20 lead. They took that lead to the final quarter.

In the fourth, Kynel Daniels extended Cache’s lead by catching a pass and taking the ball to the end zone. The Bulldogs added one final touchdown late in the game.

Chickasha travels to Newcastle on Friday.
