City teams face very different situations
Now things start to get interesting for Lawton High and MacArthur as they face tough road district foes, but back here in Lawton it will be Eisenhower's turn to take a waltz down memory lane as the Eagles celebrate Homecoming at the cozy confines of Ron Stephens Stadium.
While Eisenhower will be getting away from the pressure of district action, the Eagles still face pressure in the form of a talented Canyon High School football team from Canyon, Texas. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m. at Ron Stephens Stadium.
And, because of the limited parking around the facility, Ike fans are urged to park at either the Lawton High main parking lot and board shuttle buses in front of the Wolverine Gym, or park at McMahon Auditorium and wait under the front awning for shuttle service. Buses will begin making runs at 5 p.m. and continue until no more fans arrive at the parking lots. After the game shuttle buses will line up at the main gate at Ron Stephens and take fans back to their respective lots.
Meanwhile Lawton High makes its first trip to Enid in well over a decade to battle the Plainsmen in a 7 p.m. battle at Enid Stadium. That is a key 6A II-2 battle among teams that can score points in bunches. LHS beat Putnam City West last week 55-0 while Enid lost to Choctaw, 41-38, but the Plainsmen are averaging more than 30 points a game and will test the Wolverine defense.
Maybe the most interesting game of the week has Mac visiting Altus for a 5A-1 battle among 1-0 teams. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m. at Hightower Stadium in Altus. The Bulldogs beat El Reno in resounding fashion, 43-8, last week while Mac had no trouble with Northwest Classen, winning 63-8.
