Mac, Ike look to carry momentum from big district wins
MacArthur and Eisenhower both hit the field tonight riding high after each team secured an important win last week.
For Eisenhower (1-4, 1-1), it was the first win of the season, and the first under head coach Eric Gibson. For MacArthur (2-3, 1-1), it was a welcome respite for a team needing a confidence boost after losing three consecutive games. Both teams hope to develop a winning streak, but it will not be easy, especially for one of the two.
The Eagles host Piedmont, a team who set the state abuzz on Friday. Meanwhile, the Highlanders travel back to OKC to face Western Heights.
Both games kick off at 7 p.m.
Ike tasked with slowing down red-hot Piedmont
There is probably no more talked-about team in the state of Oklahoma, regardless of classification, than the Piedmont Wildcats. Last week, they got the attention of the entire state by ending Carl Albert’s 40-game win streak.
Not only have the Wildcats turned heads, they appear to have turned a corner. After 14 years without a playoff victory, the Wildcats have a real chance to potentially win the district. Perhaps such a big win could precipitate a letdown. At least, that’s what Eisenhower is hoping.
