MIAMI — For the second time in three weeks, Miami goes up against a top 10 team.
The Wardogs faced No. 1 Wagoner two weeks ago, battled Tulsa Cascia Hall — which moved up to 12th in The Associated Press Oklahoma High School poll — last Friday and now entertain sixth-ranked Catoosa on Friday, Oct. 13.
And things won’t get any easier: they travel to No. 3 Oologah on Thursday, Oct. 19.
Miami fell to 0-6 with a 47-0 loss to the Commandoes in a game that saw Cascia Hall sophomore quarterback Jaxon Henderson throw for six touchdowns.
The Wardogs have been outscored 298-60, already eighth most points allowed in a season — and there are four games left.
Following Friday’s clash at Red Robertson Field against Catoosa, Miami still has games at Oologah (6-0), at home with Vinita (2-4) and at Grove (0-6).
The Dogs had shown progress in games with McLain and Wagoner but regressed against Cascia Hall.
Miami managed only 59 yards in total offense, with 50 of that coming via passes.
Jay Porter and Gavin Payton were a combined 9 of 24 with three interceptions.
Caden Folks was the Dogs’ leading rusher with 24 yards on 14 carries.
Cascia Hall scored all of its points in the first half.
The only loss for the Indians (5-1) was a 28-20 decision against Oologah on Sept. 29.
The Indians slipped by Vinita 19-6 last week.
