Del City is a talented football team.

And they’re also a deep one.

The Eagles had seven players score a touchdown last Friday night in a 63-7 win over Tulsa East Central. Del City (4-0, 1-0) racked up 487 yards of total offense including 342 on the ground.

“We have some things we need to clean up, but anytime you come out with a 63-7 win in district, it’s hard to find things to nitpick,” said coach Robert Jones, during a postgame interview with Oklahoma Sports Network.

Braelon Adameh, D’Marion Turner and freshman Ricklan Holmes each ran for two touchdowns. Adameh led the way with 110 yards and two TDs on seven carries. Sophomore Shayden Green nearly topped the century mark with 11 touches for 95 yards, while Holmes finished with 79 yards on eight carries.

Quarterback Dkalen Godwin was 6 of 9 passing for 133 yards and two touchdowns. Kanijal Thomas had a 23-yard touchdown catch, and Jaylin Sweet added a 69-yard TD reception.

The Eagle defense was solid as usual. They held East Central to 116 yards and forced four turnovers. Jashawn McCalister had an interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter.

Del City took control early with 28 points in the first quarter. Godwin hit Thomas and Sweet for scores. Turner added a short run and McCalister had a pick six.

East Central scored on a long pass late in the second quarter to make it a 42-7 score at halftime.

In the fourth quarter, Turner scored, and Holmes ran for two touchdowns to make it a 63-7 final.

Del City should have a big challenge Friday night when they host McAlester (4-0, 1-0).

The Buffalos are coming off a 52-0 win over Tulsa Memorial.
