Carl Albert’s district schedule is backloaded, to say the least.

The Titans (9-0, 5-0) close out the regular season with their three toughest opponents in Bishop McGuinness, Guthrie and Piedmont.

They already knocked off two of the three with a blowout win against the Irish (6-3, 4-2) and a nailbiter with the Bluejays (8-1, 4-1). On Friday night, they’ll host rival Piedmont for senior night.

Carl Albert faced its first adversity of the season against Guthrie. The Titans trailed much of the night but pulled out a win on a late touchdown pass from Kevin Sperry Jr. to Marcus James. The comeback win clinched another District 5A-2 title for the Titans.

Carl Albert was off last week.

Piedmont (7-2, 3-2) is coming off a 19-14 loss to Bishop McGuinness. The Wildcats will likely finish fourth in the district, barring an upset over the Titans and a Shawnee win over Guthrie.

It will likely be the last time Carl Albert and Piedmont will face off in Class 5A. The Wildcats will be moving up to Class 6A-I next season for football.

Carl Albert will host a first-round playoff game against Lawton MacArthur, El Reno or Noble. Piedmont will likely face Elgin or Midwest City in the first round.
