Oakland-Craig Pounds Wisner-Pilger, Moving on to State Playoffs


“I thought Wisner came out and played with a lot more fire than we did. They did a good job of attacking us. We did not play with the aggressive style that we had played with lately,” said Head Coach Joe Anderson. “This week will give us a chance to fix some of those things. However, our defense did come up with some big plays before half that really opened up the game.”

Nick Arlt led the offense again with six touchdowns, five were rushing and one was the result of an interception.

Leading the way defensively with eight tackles each were Tommy Nelson, Cody Mace, Michael Fischer, Bryce Uhing, Ted Maline, Mitch Smith, Justin Smith, Joel Johnson and Conner Thiele.

O-C now enters the state play off rounds, beginning with Fillmore Central Friday night at 6:00 in Oakland.

“From here on out we will see nothing but really good football teams, with the playoffs going to 16 teams, this is like a 2nd round game. Fillmore central is a big physical team that starts 11 seniors, so it will definitely be a big test for us. We are looking forward to playing in front of our home crowd again,” stated Anderson.
Cheer on the O-C Knights to victory on Halloween night!

Oakland-Craig Pummels Stanton


Oakland-Craig pummeled Stanton last Friday night, beating them soundly by a score of 44-14.

“Our execution early in both halves really was the difference in the game.  We were able to jump to a big lead early in the first half, however penalties in the 2nd quarter really took away our momentum,” said Head Coach Joe Anderson. “We challenged the kids to come out with that same energy the 2nd half, and they answered that with two quick TD’s to put the game away.”

Oakland-Craig is celebrating Homecoming this week, but due to Laurel-Concord-Coleridge canceling the rest of their football season, reportedly due to injuries, the King and Queen of Homecoming were crowned at a volleyball game earlier this week, which has never happened in the history of football here.

“This bye week will allow us some time to heal some bumps and bruises, and will also allow us to get back and work on some fundamentals and clean up some of our mistakes,” stated Anderson.
