The Edmond Sun

OKLA. CITY — The Bulldogs of Edmond Memorial took care of business Friday night and wiped out Putnam West on the road, 50-14.

The conquest sets up Edlam in round one of the playoffs next Friday as Memorial, the No. 2 seed, will host Edmond North, the No. 3 seed at Wantland Stadium.

“I think offensively we’re really running the ball well at this point,” Memorial head coach Justin Merideth said after the win over the Patriots. “The quarterbacks played very well and defensively we’ve been consistent.

“Yes, I think we are peaking.”

Running signal-caller Luke Booker scored two touchdowns in the win over West and passing quarterback Mick Mayerske ran in for a score as well.

Paving the way for the Bulldog running game is center Mason Hall, guards J.D. Hettinger and Bennett Stone and tackles Jordan Weltzheimer and Hayden Kaaiohelo.

“Those five guys and fullback/tight ends Sam Rolle and Tristan McBee are really big for us and big reasons we can run the ball so well.”

Defensively, Sam Osborne recorded a safety and Grant Carro returned an interception 38 yards before getting dragged down at the Putnam West two. From there, sophomore running back Tate Troxell drove in for the score.

Standout running back Warren Wand saw limited playing time versus West.
