The Chickasha High School football team lost its first game of the season, and the offense was unable to put up a single point on the Anadarko defense on Friday night at Memorial Stadium in Chickasha.
The Fightin’ Chicks lost to the Warriors 33-2 in the season opener, and the Anadarko defense was stifling in the victory. Chickasha starts 2012 0-1, while Anadarko moves to 1-0.
Chickasha’s only points of the game came mid-way through the fourth quarter, when Anadarko was called for holding in their own end zone for a safety.
Down only seven points at halftime, Chickasha’s defense couldn’t hold against the powerful Anadarko running game in the second half.
Warriors running back Tremayne Wauahdooah rushed 15 times for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Backup quarterback Brandon Pollard ran six times for 67 yards and two touchdowns. RJ Sink ran nine times for 74 yards and a touchdown.
In total, Anadarko amassed 245 rushing yards on 43 attempts. The Warriors threw the ball only nine times, completing eight passes for 88 yards between Galen Satoe and Pollard.
The only positive for Chickasha’s defense came in the first half, when it forced three fumbles and recovered two of them.
T.J. Filer led the Chicks in tackles with nine solo and one assisted. Hunter Ford had six tackles, and Levi Kell and Ryan Mosley had four each, with Kell also getting two assisted tackles.
Chickasha’s offense was rather opposite of Anadarko's. Chickasha backs could only put up 40 yards on 22 carries, while the quarterbacks struggled throwing the ball as well. Cade Morris went 2-for-9 with 26 yards and one interception, and Brandon Wright, who got the start, went 2-for-5 for 12 yards with two picks.
Shaq Oliver had three catches for 32 yards, and Rashaad Garret caught one pass for six yards.
The Fightin’ Chicks go on the road for their second game, playing at El Reno at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 7.
