@zebra, yes they deserve their spot according to the rules. I'll give you Edmond. After that there's a 35-0 drop off. In saying that, Edmond has to answer questions.  How good is Edmond really. Guess we will see how that goes. Mclester could have won the West -Edmond

I watched the cold and rainy OwassoRed/ChoctawGold game and it was a great battle! It looked at 1st like it could go either way........and then #0 showed up, LOL! That kid can play, along with the rest of the RedRams. Choctaw did have the size, the speed, and the athletes to win but trying to run that high school type offense, along with trying to contain #0 & #43, they just couldn't do it consistantly for 4Quarters. I believe Gold is a step above the Wagoner's and McAlister's in the east or at least very similar. They rank about where I've had em all year (in the top 15). RedRams however are a top 10 team and played like it on gameday! Great game Rams and great coaching.

Hey BXB I was looking at the weather for tonight and we could just meet at PJís Pub and settle this over Tecmo bowl, or Madden 19?   

Dress warm men!  Itís going to be a cold cold cold one tonight!
Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is.

So, last night's cold, wet games determined 3 of Saturday's 4 quarter-final game match-ups. Stay tuned tonight to see if Jenks Silver or Bixby Blue will be making the trip on Saturday to play in Edmond's brand-spanking new stadium. Also, half of the AA bracket will be decided tonight.

Kudos to my friend @Raider Nation on his son's team taking care of business to advance to the next round and also on his successful predictions for last night's games. Maybe Frontline was right to call him the "football prophet".   ;D

I'm not surprised by the Westmoore/SS result, especially considering the weather. I probably would have given SS the edge had I looked up the forecast for last night when I posted my picks. SS is a battle-tested, playoff-experienced team that has the toughness to play in those sorts of adverse conditions. To give them credit, Westmoore was able to score on one of the top defenses in the league, something the defending champs weren't able to do in the season opener. Good luck to their players, parents and coaches as they move into school ball next year.

I will admit I was a little surprised by the Choctaw/Owasso game outcome, even with the tough conditions. I'm glad to hear from @JackRabbitSlim that Choctaw made a good accounting of themselves and of the best in the west in the game. I also wish them good luck next year in school ball.

Hopefully, as the west teams continue to expand their presence in INFC, they will begin to develop the mental and physical toughness that is indicative of the best teams in the east. Developing these kids into tough and talented high school football players is the main reason we all do this.

@PRESSPass, the score wasn't on the defense it was a kick return... I think they had 1 first down on a D-lineman jumping on 4th and 4.

Presspass. The west would be a huge force, if the Oklahoma Inner city youth league would have a few participate in the INFC.  They talk a lot of trash on Facebook about being the best.

PressPass, wanted to clarify that Westmoore scored on a kickoff and was unable to get a single first down the entire game.  I wish I could see the SS/TYAA game.  Going to be a prize fight!!

I have seen some of them play and Edmond has scrimmaged them in the past. They aren't quite as good as they brag. The teams I have seen usually have a roster of 50 or 60 (no play counts) and travel from tournament to tournament but do nothing on the weekends (they complained to me that INFC games are always on Saturdays). I'm not sure how they practice much which is why they usually aren't very individually disciplined with the fundamentals of the game. From my personal observation, every play goes through a few studs on the team and that's about it. Also, most of their fields, facilities and equipment aren't on par with most of the INFC teams. I don't know for sure, but I believe that some of the improvement in several of the west teams this year was from large and athletic players moving over from those other leagues to our INFC teams (possibly so they can receive some better individual coaching).
