It was a much anticipated matchup as two undefeated teams were set to face off at Cy Sloan Stadium last Friday night.
Waurika and Snyder were both undefeated and the Cyclones were coming off a big win over rival Tipton. Waurika had mercy-ruled each of its first three opponents by halftime of each contest.
But because of about five inches of rain that fell in the area last Friday and concerns about fans getting into and out of the stadium area, the game was canceled and will not be played.
Of course there was concerned about the playing conditions of the field and trying to prevent injuries as the two teams look forward to district play.
The Eagles get back in action tomorrow night by making the long trip to Caddo to face the Bruins in the final non-district encounter. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bruin Field.
Caddo will come into the game with a 2-2 mark and some momentum having won two in a row including last Thursday’s 57-26 victory over Ryan.
In the win over Ryan the Bruins came within just over a 100 yards of eclipsing the total number of yards on offense in the three previous games combined. The Bruins recorded 502 yards of offense against the Cowboys and had only a little over 600 yards of offense in the previous games.
Senior quarterback Jack Holbrook was outstanding the contest against Ryan with five touchdown passes and was 13 of 18 passing for 230 yards.
The favorite target for Holbrook against Ryan was Payton Brewer, a senior wide receiver. He had three catches for 85 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown pass from Holbrook.
Another senior, running back Michael Creel rushed for 110 yards on just 15 carries and one touchdown.
The Waurika defense will be tested in the contest as Caddo averaged over eight yards per offensive play against Ryan.
Caddo features a 23-player roster and eight of those players are seniors.
The Eagles, however, should be well rested for the game and the unexpected break in the schedule.
