The Durant Lions (1-3, 0-1) will hit the road this Friday to play a tough district game against Tulsa Bishop Kelley (3-1, 1-0) with a early kick-off time of 7:00 p.m.
Last week the Lions suffered another heart-breaking loss to district for Skiatook and Bishop Kelley is coming off a blow-out win over Hale, 58-0.
“Bishop Kelley are the returning district champions, they really good. They have a great program, so it will be a big challenge for us,” said head coach Byron Cordell.
However, Tulsa will have their hands full with Durant’s offense. Cordell said that last week QB Zac Cater and WR Skye Lowe set school records.
“He (Cater) set about four school records. Completions, passing attempts, passing yards and touchdowns. I think 16 catches by Lowe is a school record too.”
Cater went 37-52, 427 yards and 6 TDs against Skiatook and Lowe had 16 catches for 183 yards and 1 TD.
But Durant’s defense will have a challenge in front of them with Tulsa Bishop Kelley.
“We are kinda of beat up on defense,” said Cordell, “They are going to spread us out. They have a real good running back, receivers, lineman and quarterback. But we have something to prove from last week and we still haven’t played up to our potential. We haven’t hit on all cylinders yet for four quarters.”
Tulsa is averaging 32 points a game and the Lions defense is allowing 33 points per game.
This should be shoot-out between these two teams, but this time Durant has to get a win in district play.
