These cheer flips look graceful at full speed ... but strangely ackward when stopped mid-flight.
|The Cardinal cheerleaders barely has their feet back on the ground before Brayden Burd (#22) had run back the opening kickoff (~80 yards) to put Collinsville on the scoreboard at 11:49 of the 1st quarter.|
|Seth Weiser (#6) had plenty of opportunities for kickoffs Friday night. While I enjoyed a big win for the hard working Collinsville kids... it is always sad to see the Tulsa Public School kids (also hard working) with a typical lack of fans in the stands. I counted about 33 people in the stands on the home side just prior to the opening kickoff. -- Ted Wright -- (also see Tulsa World on that topic)|
|Senior Carson Stout (#2) had his first start as the varsity quarterback and played the first three quarter with sophomore Colton Allphen (#1) finishing out the fourth quarter. Tate Robards and Cole Dugger were not suited up Friday.|

|Brayden Burd (#22) has this Hale back stopped with six other Cardinals ready to assist if needed.|
|Nathan Hale's inability to consistantly get the shotgun snap into their quarterback's hands (instead of over his head) led to a Collinsville touchdown on this play (with Carter Lowe #25 winning the race to the loose ball in the endzone at 6:49 1st quarter) and two safeties later ... as well as ruining Hale's field position most of the evening.|
|Tres Sexton (#59) blocked this Hale punt straight up in the air then caught it and reached the 6 yard line to set up a short Cardinal touchdown (below).|
|Brayden Burd (#22) needed just 5 and 1 yard carries to score at 6:10 in the first quarter.bringing the score to 28-0 after the PAT. Another Hale "overhead" snap was batted out of the back of the endzone to bring the score to 30-0 with 4:22 still remaining in the first quarter.|
Carson Stout (#2) gained yardage on this late first quarter drive.
|Great job by both the offensive and defensive lines Friday at the ball field next to East Central HS in Tulsa.|

|Hale connected on a long 2nd quarter pass in Collinsville territory but Colton Allphen (#1) knocked the ball loose, recovered and took off in the opposite direction (below).|
|Colton Allphen (#1) broke several tackles on the fumble return and eventually reached Hale's 20 yard line at the 10:01 mark of the second quarter.|
|Brayden Burd (#22) scored his third touchdown of the evening on this 11 yard run at 9:09 in the 2nd quarter. A Jones kick made the score 44-0.|
|Trey Eberle (#14) didn't score on this play but did reach the endzone a few plays later on a 4 yard run with 4 minutes left before half time and the score reached 51-0 after the PAT.|
|The Collinsville Crimson Cadet Band has added to and refined their "Wild" show each week and now are competing at Saturday contests in addition to their outstanding Friday evening performamces.|
A Four-Cardinal tackle in the third quarter set up a short Hale punt (from the 8) which became Collinsville's ball at the 8 after Walker Roberts was fouled on the punt return. Brayden Burd scored his fourth TD from the 8 yard line at 7:27 in the 3rd quarter (58-0).
|Colin Dooling (#82) recovered this Hale fumble at Collinsville's 39 with 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.|
|Hale gave up another 2 point (60-0) on yet another errant snap out the back of their endzone with 6:13 left in the game and Colton Allphen (#1 above) later scored from 24 yards out on a 4th down play. The extra point kick was low and the final 66-0 score was reach with 1)7 left in the game. Again I noticed the clock was allowed to run in a very short final quarter. -- Ted|
This Hale hurdle attempt on the final kickoff return was handled by the Cardinal defenders.
|Collinsville has tougher competition ahead on the schedule ... but it was their first district win ... and snaps a four game losing streak.|
