WW, Stratford to tangle at Blackburn Field

marie@pvdemocrat.com — A big battle awaits Blackburn Field Friday night as the No. 2 team in Class A, Wynnewood, travels to Stratford to face the Bulldogs.

Since week one, Wynnewood has been on a roll. Stratford also lost an early game but was on a roll until last week’s loss to Wewoka.

“They are very much improved over last year,” Wynnewood head coach Brad Osteen said. “Coach Blackburn has done a great job with them. They are young but they are playing hard.”

This is a very important game for both teams as Stratford looks to keep their home playoff hopes alive.

A win would go a long way and even though a loss doesn’t put them all the way out of a home playoff game it wouldn’t help matters in a tight district race.

A win for the Savages would put them in control of their own destiny with only two weeks remaining in the regular season.

Kyle Qualls leads the Bulldog rushing attack with over 850 yards this season. Qualls is averaging over 8 yard per carry and has scored 10 touchdowns.

Kyler Wade and Montie Thomas have also had some big games on the ground, they have 10 touchdowns between the two of them.

“We heard they lost one of their tailbacks,” Osteen said. “We haven’t confirmed that so we are preparing like he is going to play.”

Chase Bradstreet guides the offense for Coach Michael Blackburn’s squad under center at quarterback.

Bradstreet has over 500 yards through the air with 6 touchdowns against three interceptions. He also has 200 yards rushing for Stratford with two touchdowns.

Isaac Miller, Montie Thomas and Kyle Wright lead the defense with over 50 tackles each.

“They don’t really have one guy that stands out on defense,” Osteen said. “They have sis or seven guys around the football on each tackle.

“Coach Savage will run a smorgasbord of defenses at us trying to keep us off balance.”

Wynnewood got off to a slow start last week trailing 7-0 after an interception and short touchdown run. Wynnewood finally got rolling and blitzed Caddo 51-7.

“We want to start fast and finish strong,” Osteen said. “We need to play ‘Savage’ football this week from the opening kickoff.”
