|Big Swing -- early in the 3rd quarter Collinsville's players, coaches, and fans thought Collinsville was set up deep in Oologah territory after a Cardinal punt touched a Mustand and Collinsville recovered. Instead Oologah kept the ball and scored on the very next play (a 72 yard run) to take the lead for good (10:52 3Q). I was as close as any official and guarantee the punt touched both a Collinsville and Oologah player but can't swear in which order in a split-second ricochet? -- Ted|

|Coach Kevin Jones told his player that it has been his experience (both as a player and a coach) that you learn more from a loss than a win ... and that they had plenty to learn from this loss to a tough opponent. Collinsville travels to Catoosa next Friday.|
