City teams all get wins on same night for first time this season.

We've hit the final week of the high school football regular season. For many teams, there is still a lot to play for in week ten, but a few others were able to clinch playoff seeds or district titles in week nine.

In class 5a, top ranked MacArthur sealed the district one championship with a dominating 37-0 victory over then No. 9 Del City.

"I think it''s good for our program. You know, a lot of people said at the beginning of the season that 5A-1 was the toughest district in the state, regardless of class,” said Brett Manning, MacArthur Head Coach. “And to be the district champion and to be undefeated, I think it says a lot for our program and for our kids."

"It feels great to know that we're the best in the district and to know that we got two home games against... what I think will be two great teams. Feels pretty good,” said Ronnie Kimble, MacArthur Senior Receiver/Defensive Back.

Mac will try to tie a bow on an undefeated regular season this week when they head to El Reno.

It was a similar story for Lawton High in week nine. The second ranked Wolverines held off number five Midwest City to earn a hard fought 24-13 victory and their third straight district championship.

"Home field advantage is a big deal. Lawton High has got one of the best home field advantage playoffs records in the state...then of course to the kids, being able to win it and go undefeated three years in a row. District champion is still a big deal and it's something we'd like to have a tenth game for this year,” said Randy Breeze, LHS Head Coach.

"It feels great. I've been dreaming about doing this since I was a young kid. I use to come to Lawton High games when I was in elementary school and it was great. I'm proud to be a Wolverine. I'm proud," said Jay’Quan Lincoln, LHS Sophomore Linebacker.

Lawton High has now won six straight. The Wolverines will try to keep their momentum rolling on Thursday when they host Choctaw.

It's a much happier week over on the west side. Eisenhower picked up its first win of 2015. A 50-28 victory over Putnam City West. For the eagles, getting that first W is like a heavy weight being lifted off their shoulders.

"More than anything just to see our young men smiling and and walking a little taller and practicing a little harder. It's just been a good feeling this week,” said Danny Edleman, Eisenhower Head Coach. “We've been talking all year long that we've just been knocking on the door and having momentum escape from us in big games. It was one of the things we're excited about. That our kids just kind of kicked that door in. You know, Friday night we had some big plays early in the game. We were able to grab some momentum and just...pretty much take control of the game. I'm so proud of how our young men played."

"It's just a lot of momentum for us. It's hard losing because we lost every game, except this one. It's very hard, but very thankful to get this win and hope to get another win this week,” said Tayquan Tucker, Eisenhower Sophomore Cornerback.

The Eagles will now try to end their season on a high note. They'll host Stillwater on Friday night.
