MULDROW—It was all Muldrow Friday night as the Bulldogs built a big lead early and cruised to a 42-0 win over Heavener in 3A-8 district play.
The win improves Muldrow to 5-3 overall, 2-1 in district play. Heavener drops to 0-8 and 0-3. Both teams have byes next week. The Wolves host Stigler in two weeks and Idabel in Week 10 to close out the season.
The Bulldogs got three touchdown passes from Braden Gleason in the first quarter along with a 5-yard scoring run from Jaedon Morgan to build a 28-0 lead.
All four scoring drives began in Heavener territory and the Bulldogs scored quick on every drive. Morgan scored the first touchdown and after the 2-point PAT, led 8-0 with 9:36 left.
Muldrow added touchdown passes of 36 yards to Tyren Collins, 39 yards to Tyler Stevenson and 29 yards to Jarrett Sharp.
Gleason threw his fourth touchdown pass, 10 yards to Gage Ramey early in the second quarter for a 35-0 lead before the Bulldogs’ offensive starters took a seat for the remainder of the contest.
Muldrow’s final score came 1:17 left before halftime on a 9-yard run by Ethan Johnson for the final 42-0 score.
Heavener’s offense struggled against a Muldrow defense stacked against the run. The Wolves gained only 43 yards on 38 carries while completing one pass for no yards.
The Bulldogs rushed for 87 yards and added 172 through the air. Gleason was 7-9 for 127 yards and the four touchdowns in just over a quarter.
This is the final game between the two teams after playing for four years. Muldrow went 4-0 with the first three games competitive. The Bulldogs are going back up to Class 4A next year while Heavener is dropping to 2A.
