After close wins a week ago, Barnsdall and Pawhuska enter this Friday's contest undefeated for the annual Osage County Clash. The Panthers had to fight their way back from a 19-point halftime deficit to defeat Hominy 36-33 a week ago and Tre Harper got a late interception to preserve Pawhuska's 20-12 victory at Morrison.
The Panthers have 14 seniors on their roster and nine of those players have been starting since they were freshman. Pawhuska coach Matt Hennesy knows that experience will benefit them, but he hopes Pawhuska's tempo will wear the Panthers down as the game wears on.
Barnsdall coach Kylee Sweeney believes the Hominy win was a major confidence booster for his team and adds that the Panthers are confident they can go take care of business on Friday night.
With the many connections the two towns share, Sweeney knows both teams will be well-prepared for Friday night.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. from Ormond-Beach Memorial Stadium in Pawhuska. Coverage can be heard on Sportstalk KPGM FM 99.1.
