Teams across the state will be vying for playoff spots this week.
Chickasha is one of the teams that can either extend its season or see its football season come to an end Friday. Chickasha is scheduled to play at Anadarko.
Chickasha moved to 5-4 on the season and 3-3 in 4A-1 last week with a 29-13 win over Clinton, giving the senior class one last win at home.
“Senior group wanted to come out one last time and get (it) done … proud of those guys,” head coach Jerry Don Bray said after his team’s win over Clinton. “They’re just great kids. I’m just proud of them.”
A win over Anadarko this week would give the senior class a win over a rival in the group's final season and could extend the high school careers of the class.
Chickasha could find itself in the playoffs for the first time since 2013 by the end of the night.
Chickasha finds itself playing winning football at the right time of the season. After losing three games in a row, Chickasha has won its last two games. The Fightin’ Chicks defeated Elgin prior to the win over Clinton.
Chickasha can now finish as high as third in the district if results go its way.
But everything starts with Chickasha having to beat Anadarko this week, meaning Chickasha will have to snap its losing streak to the Warriors.
The Warriors enter the matchup with a record of 4-5 on the season and are 2-4 in 4A-1 this season. Anadarko lost three games in a row before beating Elk City 38-10 last week.
Anadarko — like Chickasha — is still fighting for a playoff spot out of 4A-1.
