Pauls Valley, OK, Pauls Valley Democrat

Similar teams face off Friday in PV — Two teams that have had success over the last 10 years find themselves on the outside looking in as far as the playoffs are concerned. The Madill Wildcats and Pauls Valley Panthers are playing their final game of the year Friday night at Thompson Field.

For both, this will be the last time the seniors will step on the field and emotions will be especially high in Pauls Valley as they honor those senior football players, cheerleaders, pom squad and band members prior to the start of the game.

Madill comes into the game having won two straight in district play. Pauls Valley has won one out of its last two. The teams match up well on paper so this could be a real ‘Cat’ fight.

For Madill, junior quarterback Colton Clement has led the offense the last two weeks with three rushing touchdowns in each win. Madill beat Sulphur two weeks ago 21-7 as Clement had 90 yards on 27 carries and three touchdowns.

Last week n a shoot-out with Atoka, Clement had 69 yards on 11 carries with three touchdowns and threw for 82 yards and another touchdown.

Clement has found the end zone a lot for Madill but it’s been Corbin Larason that’s put up some major yardage on the ground.

Larason had been a backup all season but has started the last two games. He has rushed for over 100 yards both times with 124 against Atoka and 159 against Sulphur. But with all the yardage racked up he still hasn’t found the end zone.

“We have watched them several times and one game they under center in the I-formation and the next week they are in shot-gun with no backs,” PV head coach Bill Green said. “I think they will try and spread us out this week and get the ball to their quarterback and tailback. I believe they will run a lost of misdirection at us.”

The Panthers have been playing better but especially in the penalty and turnover department. They must continue that trend Friday if they expect to finish the season with a “W.”

“We must control the line of scrimmage and control the clock to keep the ball out of their hands,” Green said.

Seniors along with their parents will be honored prior to kickoff Friday night at Thompson Field. Seniors will be honored at 6:45 p.m. and kick off is at 7:30. p.m.
