SULPHUR — Minus starting quarterback Cade Hammond and starting running back Cameron Gunville, Seminole fell 34-8 to Sulphur Friday night to close the regular season.
Hammond, a junior, and Gunville, a sophomore, were in concussion mode.
Seminole assistant coach Brian McAlvain said Hammond and Gunville will probably be able to play next Friday as Seminole launches playoff action at Anadarko.
Anadarko earned a first-round playoff host berth by finishing second in District 3A-3 behind John Marshall.
Seminole, 7-3 overall, has to go on the road by virtue of claiming third place in 3A-4 at 4-2.
Sulphur, 9-1 overall and 6-0 in district play, owned the line of scrimmage by accumulating 319 yards on 48 carries.
Seminole rushed for 131 yards on 29 attempts. Jamon Dennis was Seminole’s top rusher with 86 yards on 14 carries. Dennis scored Seminole’s sole touchdown on a 9-yard run in the fourth quarter. Chico Baker converted the 2-point conversion via a run.
Baker also posted an interception.
Sulphur led the Chieftains 7-0 after one quarter, 20-0 at the intermission and 34-0 after three quarters.
“Sulphur is big up front and they really get off the ball,” McAlvain said. “They also have three or four kids who can run.”
Seminole had two passes intercepted and lost a fumble. Sulphur recorded two turnovers.
