Collinsville experienced tragedy in Oologah with their first loss this season, holding a final score of 43-14.

The Cardinals suffered through an exceedingly tough, non-conference game this last Thursday against the Mustangs. At the start, Collinsville fell quickly behind after the Oologah scored on their first drive, starting the score at 7-0. Though the opposing team rapidly moved the ball, a Draper led defense, still competed with an intensity; constantly in the back field, pushing back the adversary.

The Cardinal’s answered back aggressively trying to find a rhythm. The defense held the Mustangs at bay, giving Collinsville the momentum to tie the score. Near the end of the 1st quarter, Levi Draper (#10) scored off of a 13yrd pass from Seth Boomer (#12). The Varsity boys, then, continued to keep their momentum even after Oologah scored a safety and two touchdowns. Delivering big hits against the Mustangs and being led offensively by QB, Seth Boomer, the Cardinals scored again at the end of the half. Receiving a 58yrd pass, Hayden West, made the score 14-22 with one final touchdown.

Dylan Russell (#3) was a major player for the night, delivering 8 big tackles and 22 rushing yards. Inside line-backer, Chase Lorg (#9) also had a great game. Lorg had 5 major tackles and gave intense pressure to Oologah’s offense throughout the entire game. Levi Draper (#10) was another major defensive player. Draper gave 7 tackles and even rushed for 21yrds.

Seth Boomer led the way on offense throwing 139 passing yrds. The senior captain was caught scrambling nearly every down, but still always managed to give Collinsville the momentum it needed. Logan Sieminskie (#20) rushed for 25yrds total, claiming several first-downs for the Cardinals. Hayden West also performed amazingly for the Cards, rushing 5 plays for a total of 119yrds.

Collinsville lost with a final score of 43-14, at the end of the game. The Cardinals went home with their first loss this season, but still held their heads high. The Cardinals now suit-up to practice every single day, to make this last Thursday their first and final loss this season.
