The Blanchard High School football team went to east Norman and blew out Little Axe on Friday night.
The Lions went up 54-0 through three quarters, and won the game 54-7 to advance to 4-0 this season.
Blanchard only won five games last season, but with as much experience as the Lions returned, one year seems to be making all the difference.
Head coach Jeff Craig said before the season that he was setting higher expectations for the team this year, after he felt the Lions underachieved in the second half of last season.
They're off to a good start so far. Blanchard has won all of its games by large margins, and the win over Little Axe puts the team at 1-0 in district play.
Quarterback Brock Lamle continued what has started out as a great season for him statistically.
Lamle didn't throw many times, but was efficient. He finished 8-for-14 with 123 yards and three touchdowns.
Through four games, Lamle has 14 touchdown passes and only one interception.
Braden Stringer rushed for 145 yards on 13 carries, and had three touchdown runs.
Stephan Davis ran for 77 yards on seven carries, and Brandon Montano had six carries for 73 yards.
Blanchard scored 26 points in the first quarter on two Stringer runs and two passes from Lamle. One pass was to Parker Randels and one was to Zach Hill.
Hill had three catches for 60 yards. Randels's 17-yard touchdown catch was his only reception of the game.
After a good start to the district season, Blanchard still has some challenges ahead. The Tuttle Tigers are one of the favorites to win district 3A-1, and are the last opponent on Blanchard's schedule on Nov. 2.
Looking ahead, however, the Lions will need to take care of business this Friday against their city rival to the north, the Bridge Creek Bobcats.
The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Blanchard High School.
