COMMERCE - An efficient offense may be the best defense for Quapaw as the Wildcats battle Commerce here Friday night.

“We know we've got to play fundamentally sound, play good technique, not turn the ball over, and take what yards we can get,” Quapaw head coach Brad Homer said. “I feel our best defense will be to keep the ball moving and keep it out of their hands.

“They can score so fast.”

Quapaw, in the midst of a modest two-game winning streak, is 2-6 overall and 2-5 in District A-8.

They've beaten Okay 33-0 and Hulbert 16-6.

Commerce, meanwhile, is ranked in all three of the state's major prep polls.

This is the Tigers' first 8-0 start since 2005 and just the second for CHS this decade.

“They have a very talented bunch,” Homer said. “Week in and week out, they are able to put points up on anybody.”
