Congrats to our two Osage County high school football teams, as both Pawhuska and Barnsdall have moved on to the Class A quarterfinals with wins this past Friday.
Both will play at home this Friday with a chance to go to the semifinals.
Pawhuska rebounded from a 26-0 deficit to battle back and top previously unbeaten Stroud 34-26. The Huskies reeled off 34 unanswered points to grab the victory. After the road win, Pawhuska will host Ringling on Friday night in the next round.
A contest we will carry for you on 99.1 FM – KPGM. Your home for Huksy football throughout Osage County.
Elsewhere, Barnsdall is going to the quarterfinals for the first time in 40 years, as the Panthers held on to top Gore 29-26. Barnsdall did this in the fourth quarter without its senior quarterback, Joe Cole, who was ejected after a questionable targeting call on defense.Barnsdall head coach Kylee Sweeney.
The ejection could mean that Cole will not be able to play in this Friday’s game. Barnsdall will appeal the suspension this week and will find out Cole’s status in a matter of days. The No. 1 team in Class A, Cashion, will have to come to Barnsdall on Friday night.
That contest will air on KRIG 104.9.
More on both those games throughout the week
