By Chuck Reherman, Sports Editor – Grinding it out.
That’s what Yukon’s freshmen did Monday night in earning a 13-6 win over Norman North.
The Millers relied on their ground attack to control the tempo of the game and come away with their second win in a row. The freshmen are now 2-1 on the season.
“We played good enough to win,” freshman coach Aaron Dillard said. “We made some mistakes and didn’t tackle very well on defense.”
The Millers did take the initial lead on a 25-yard touchdown run by Tristan Brooke in the opening quarter.
Levi Davis scored on a seven-yard run in the fourth quarter to give the Millers the 13-6 lead.
The defense did have a good night in slowing North down. Kobe Flow intercepted two passes and Cameron Smith picked off a pass. The defense now has six interceptions in three games this season.
The Millers will make the trek to Southmoore on Monday. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m.
“Southmoore is an athletic team and they will be explosive on offense,” Dillard said. “We have to get better executing and finishing drives on offense. Defensively, we have to tackle better and limit the big plays.”
