The Frederick Bombers played host to the Cordell Blue Devils this past Friday. The Blue Devils had a 2-4 record coming into the game with wins over fellow District foes Sayre and Hinton.

Freshman kicker Marco Clemente made the PAT to put the Bombers up 7-0. Two possessions later following a long run by Gaytan, FB Malachi Newton followed his blockers around the right side and into the endzone for his first touch down of the night. Clemente’s PAT failed. The Blue Devils weren’t out done, as they hit a 35-yard pass into the endzone right before the half.

The District A-2 standings are as follows:
Frederick with a 4-0 District record, having fared 166 points and allowed 50;
Hobart is also 4-0 in District play have points fared 178 and points allowed 75;
Merritt with a 3-1 record (they have yet to play Mangum or Hobart), and
Mangum with a 2-2 record.
Cordell has yet to play Hobart or Mangum and more than likely will miss the long trip to Hooker as the winner fourth place in District. Sayre with 1 win and Hinton and Hollis with win-less records playing Frederick the next two weeks, will lead up to possibly the best game of the season as Frederick will host that H school from the north for the District title.
We hope the Bomber faithful travel out to the western plains of Oklahoma as the Bombers travel to take on a hapless Hollis Tigers team. Hopefully the Bombers will take some time during this fall break shortened week to heal and get better.
