Millers drop to 0-2 on the season
For the second-straight week, Yukon suffered a blow-out loss at home, this time coming at the hands of Norman North 55-7 on Homecoming Night for Yukon High School.
The Millers kept it close for the first six-and-a-half minutes of the game, but the Timberwolves ended the scoreless tie at the 5:26 mark of the first quarter with a two-yard scamper into the end zone from North running back Gabe Mashburn.
After the successful extra-point attempt, the T-Wolves led 7-0 over Yukon.
That wasn’t the end of the first-quarter scoring for NN, as they put another seven points on the board with 56 seconds remaining in the opening frame on a 16-yard touchdown reception from tight end Charlie Kolar to give NHS a 14-0 cushion going into the second quarter.
The second frame of the night was all Norman North, as they put four touchdowns on the board against the Millers. The first came at the 11:57 mark of the second quarter on a Ben Jones one-yard run, the second came at the 9:11 mark of the frame on an 18-yard touchdown reception by Colin Klein, the third score came at the 7:57 mark of the quarter on a 52-yard touchdown reception from Drake Stoops and the fourth came at the 3:54 mark with another Jones’ one-yard touchdown scamper.
Norman North led Yukon 41-0 at the halftime break.
The third quarter was lower-soring than the second, but the T-Wolves still dominated the Millers scoring a touchdown at the 3:13 mark of the frame on another Klein touchdown reception, this one coming from 35 yards out to go up 48-0 heading into the final quarter.
Yukon’s only score of the game came at the 5:31 mark of the fourth quarter on a Jalen Barnes run from 35-yards out to make the score 48-7.
Norman North wasn’t done scoring however, as they put another touchdown on the board at the 3:35 mark in the fourth quarter on a 37-yard run from Jalen Smith to make the final score 55-7.
