Game won’t be replayed

Ponca City Now - December 12, 2014 7:53 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A spokeswoman for the Oklahoma City public school district says it will not pursue any more legal action after a judge decided that a contested high school football playoff game will not be replayed.

Oklahoma City Public School District Athletic Director Keith Sinor also said Thursday the judge’s decision wasn’t what they had wanted, but that it presents the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association a chance to review procedures.

Judge Bernard Jones said in an order Thursday that he would not force a replay of the Nov. 28 3A quarterfinal game between Douglass and Locust Grove.

An improperly enforced penalty erased a touchdown that would have put Douglass ahead with 64 seconds left, and Locust Grove won 20-19.

The OSSAA has scheduled the 3A semifinal game for Friday night.
