CHS Football -vs- Skiatook
Cardinals Not Perfect But Still Unbeaten
17-3 Win To Reclaim Highway 20 Trophy
The 2018 Cardinals celebrate a hard fought 17-3 win over Skiatook for the district championship, remaining unbeaten at 9 & 0, the Highway 20 trophy and home playoff game(s). If you include Pryor & Claremore along with Skiatook the Cardinals really did earn the Highway 20 trophy this season.
This was Senior night with massive numbers of football players and band members (along with cheer and managers) in their final season. This is normally where I tell you I will have the individual senior's photo with their folks later on their senior pages ... but there willl be no 2019 (or beyond) senior pages so there will just be a small sample here and the other can be obtained from the booster clubs after the season ends. -- Ted
Brayden Burd (#22) on the opening Cardinal series which was penalty hampered.
The Collinsville defense was solid all evening giving up just three point on the Skiatook field goal below.
Skiatook took a brief lead at 0-3 on their first offensive series ending with 4th & 4 from the 23 yard line at 4:47 in the first quarter.
In Collinsville's 2nd series Cole Dugger (#12) passed to Cole Kuykendall (#33 below) down to the 7 yard line.
After Kuykendall's catch down to the 7 yard line, Jake Tuttle got Collinsville to the 2 before setting for a field goal (below).
Seth Weiser (#6) kicked a field goal to tie the score at 3-all at 10:40 in the 2nd quarter.
This Dugger pass to Eli Benham (#10) moved Collinsville into Skiatook territory on their 3rd series.
Malcolm Tillman (#24) picked up the ground yardage on this series including this run down to the 5 yard line.
Tillman scored the first touchdown from one yard out to give Collinsville it's first lead at 10-3 (after Weiser's PAT) at 6:26 in the 2nd quarter.
Skiatook was threatning with about a minitue and a half left in the first half when this diving tackle by Eli Benham (#10) seperated the pass receiver from the ball which Eli recovered below.
Eli Benham's fumble recovery gave Collinsville the ball back near the 20 yard line to protect the 10-3 lead heading into half-time.
Collinsville's Cheerleaders kicked off the half-time entertainment.
The Collinsville Crimson Cadet Band with their final public performace (Friday for the fans) of the marching program before their appearance at OBA the following morning (for the judges).
"The Trap" student section continues to work hard to maintain their "Fans of the Week" status with camera crews from most of the local stations on hand this week at Sallee Field for their "game of the week".
Collinsville's defense allowed Skiatook just 3 plays to start the 3rd quarter before Jake Tuttle recoved a Bulldog fumble at their 15 yard line.
It appeared Collinsville had a quick 3rd quarter touchdown (Dugger pass to Talon Coulter in the endzone) but the play was wiped out by a holding call.
The Cardinals attempted a field goal that was blocked by Skiatook and returned to Collinsvile's 30 with Colton Allphin making the saving tackle (above) with 8:47 left in the third quarter.
Skiatook went for it on 4th down but this loose ball resulted in the Card's taking over on downs at the 31 with 6:14 left in the 3rd quarter.
Collinsville drove down to Skiatook's 5 yard line before fumbling back to the Bulldogs with 3:08 left in the 3rd quarter.
The defense pushed Skiatook backwards forcing them to operate from their own endzone under heavy pressure resulting in the interception below.
Cole Kuykendall (#33) intercepted this Skiatook pass near the 15 and ended up back at the 26 after a penalty on the return with 2:16 left in the 3rd quarter. Later penalties pushed Collinsville backwards and they punted to Skiatook's 9 yard line late in the 3rd quarter.
Skiatook barely escaped a safety on this Cardinal stop marked at the 2 yard line on the final play of the 3rd quarter.
Following an early 4th quarter punt Collinsville had the ball at Skiatook's 34 before penalties pushed them back to the 48. From there Cole Dugger passed on the run to Cale Hutchens (#9) all the way down to the 15 yard line to set up Colinsville's final score. Much to the delight of the cheerleaders and Trap.
Jake Tuttle (#21) needed just a foot to reach the Skiatook endzone with 8:49 left in the game. Weiser's kick gave Collinsville the final margin at 17-3.
Coach Kevin Jones congratulated his players for their efforts to reach the 9 win no loss level that had not been matched in Collinsville for 39 years, but cautioned that the number of mistakes made in this game would certainly have resulted in a loss if it had been a playoff game. So the Cardinals still have plenty of room to improve. They face win-less Tulsa Rogers next week to wrap up the regular season. Playoffs begin Nov. 9th (at Sallee Field).

Just a quick FYI (that should already be obvious): I am well over a week behind on photos and news on cvilleok. I had hoped to "catch up" over fall break but barely broke even. One of the side projects that has been taking extra time is trying to find the record of each CHS Football team for the lengthy history of Collinsville High School. The outstanding performance by this year's team (8 & 0 so far) has folks wondering about how they might compare to teams in the past. I am far from done and not totally trusting the info I have so far ... but it looks like Ron McHenry's 1978 team that went 12 & 1 had the best record so far.

A few other notable are (2013: 10-2), (2000: 10-2), (1993: 10-3). (1986: 10-2), (1979: 10-1) & (1977: 11-2). I have many years still unknown and obviously 2015's state runner-up finish is best so far even though their 8 & 5 record is mis-leading in regards to the amazing finish. More later. -- Ted Wright 10/25/2018

And thank you to Gavin Rose for some initial research and inspiration.

Note Tyler Lowe has shared his research on the same subject which should expedite this process ... but it on hold for now. -- Ted -- Sat Oct. 27th
