No. 3 Altus takes down No. 7 Del City 27-6 in district opener

ALTUS, OK (KSWO) - Despite early penalties slowing the pace of the game, Altus found a groove to beat Del City 27-6 in the opening game of Class 5A District 1 play.

Numerous false start and offside penalties plagued both teams in the first half. However, a third-down sack of Del City's quarterback Jarrod Wood by Altus' Terrell Ridenour in the first quarter seemed to breathe life into the Bulldogs. On the ensuing Altus drive, the Bulldogs were able to open the scoring thanks to a nine-yard touchdown run by quarterback Jake Vargas.

They would add to their lead in the second quarter. A 40-yard run by Nehemiah McCaskill and 29-yard reception by Shaquan French set up the Bulldogs perfectly at the Eagles' five-yard line. That's when Vargas' name was called again. He ran in the second score for Altus to make it 14-0 at the half.

The Bulldogs now sit at 4-0 on the season. They will head to Duncan next week.
