• Southeastern picked up its first win of the season Saturday night with a 40-27 victory over Oklahoma Baptist. The Storm came close in each of their first two contests, finally making it over the hump against the Bison. But they had to hang on. SE had a 23-0 lead late in the second quarter, but the Bison didn’t go quietly, getting to within 10 early in the fourth.
• Oklahoma Panhandle, however, also took the zero out of the win column this weekend with a 40-35 win over Langston. It was the first victory over the Lions since 2004 and it didn’t come easily. Like SE, OPSU also got up early and was up 31-0 at halftime. Langston stormed back to take a 35-34 lead midway through the fourth quarter. The Aggies’ Devyn Williams returned the ensuing kickoff 57 yards and then had a 30-yard run in for the touchdown that would be the game winner.
• With those wins, only Bacone, Central, Northeastern State, Oklahoma Baptist and Southern Nazarene remain winless in 2015. And losses are continuing to mount for NSU and SNU.
Northeastern State’s losing streak is now at 14, dating back to a victory over rival UCO to close out the 2013 season. The RiverHawks have had fourth quarter leads in the past two games, but haven’t been able to close out.
Southern Nazarene’s streak is now at 25. And the signs of life aren’t as discernible. The Crimson Storm’s last win was the season finale of the 2012 campaign when they blanked College of Faith, 42-0. This year, SNU has struggled again to put points on the board and have been outscored 173-14, including shutouts at Harding and at East Central in the past two weeks.
• Points were abounding at Tyrone on Friday night. Cherokee, the 2014 Class C state runner-up, was scoring prolifically, but the Bobcats wouldn’t quit at home trying to stay up with the Chiefs. The final score was 90-64, as Cherokee moved to 3-0 on the year in a game that provided the most points combined this season.
• Oklahoma Wesleyan is still undefeated in men’s soccer. The Eagles are now 6-0 in 2015. OKWU knocked off No. 17 Hastings, 3-0, on Saturday. Jack McGowan had two goals in the win. The Eagles host John Brown on Tuesday.
And Rogers State pushed its winning streak to five with a 3-2 win over Oklahoma Baptist on Saturday. The Hillcats (5-1) got a goal and an assist from Niall Masterson in the victory over the Bison in their fourth straight win over a GAC school.
• And finally, the Cameron volleyball team remained undefeated after last week’s game. The Aggies defeated Texas A&M-Kingsville on the road, 3-0, in their first Lone Star Conference match of the season. It was the first sweep of the Javelinas since 1991. Jenna Gillean had 13 kills and Tori Luckenbill had 16 assists. Cameron’s next fives matches are at home and four of the five are LSC contests.
