The Oklahoman sports team delivers the key players, moments and more from the area's top high school football games in Week 3. More:How top in-state OU football, Oklahoma State recruits have fared so far in 2023 HS season Edmond Memorial 51, Southmoore 7 Three takeaways from Class 6A-I No. 10 Edmond Memorial's 51-7 home win against Southmoore. Top player: David McComb.

The junior Kansas commit led Edmond Memorial’s offense, which was on fire from the opening quarter. McComb finished with four passing touchdowns despite not even playing down the stretch. Strong start: Edmond Memorial (2-2) got on the scoreboard with a 7-yard run by Nick Booker with 10:16 left in the first quarter, and the rout was on from there.

Edmond Memorial led 37-0 against Southmoore (0-3) at halftime and was in control throughout the game. Bounce back: Edmond Memorial had a tough game last week, losing to crosstown rival Edmond North 56-35. This victory gave the Bulldogs some momentum before taking on their next big rival next Friday, Edmond Santa Fe. —Nick Sardis, Staff writer More:Oklahoma high school football scoreboard: OSSAA Week 3 schedule, scores & highlights Guthrie 20, Tuttle 3 Three takeaways from Class 5A No.

3-ranked Guthrie’s 20-3 home win over Class 4A No. 4-ranked Tuttle on Friday night: Player of the game: Jaylen Harper. The 5-foot-11, 170-pound senior running back ran the ball 17 times for 139 yards and a touchdown. After a slow start, Harper came alive in the second half, rushing for 99 yards and scoring the 6-yard touchdown run which put away Tuttle for good.

Friday marks Harper’s fourth consecutive game rushing over 100 yards and now has 11 total touchdowns on the year. Key moment: On third-and-5 on Guthrie’s 17-yard line while trailing 14-3, Tuttle quarterback Jackson Johnson’s pass was intercepted by Bluejay’s defensive back Tariq Watson. The interception proved to be brutal as it was the Tigers' final trip to the red zone of the game, and they did not score for the remainder of the second half. Read option: Guthrie’s suffocating defense gave up just its first points against them all season on a field goal in the second quarter, and still have yet to allow a touchdown in 2023.

The Bluejays, led by edge rusher Eli Moroney, allowed zero rushing yards in the first half despite 13 carries from the Tuttle offense. In the end, head coach Kelly Beeby's defense forced three turnovers and recorded five sacks on the night. —Jordan Davis, Staff writer More:A look at The Oklahoman's 2024 Super 30 high school football recruiting series Midwest City 31, Putnam North 14 Three takeaways from Class 5A unranked Midwest City’s 31-13 road win over 6A-II No.

8 Putnam North on Friday night: Player of the game: Jaylan Woody. Midwest City relied on a trio of running backs, but Woody compiled the most yards. The junior running back had 12 carries for 121 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown on a drive in which he showed his breakaway speed. He also caught two passes for 21 yards. Top moment: Jaylan Woody saved his best highlight for the fourth quarter.

Midwest City started a drive on its 1-yard line, but Woody overcame the difficult field position with a 63-yard run. Then he capped the 99-yard drive with a 15-yard touchdown. Read option: Midwest City’s defense stepped up in big moments. Josiah Johnson and Felix Fuentes each had one interception.

At the end of the first half, Putnam North advanced inside the 10-yard line, but the Bombers relentlessly stopped the Panthers’ offense until time ran out. That gave Midwest City significant momentum heading into halftime. —Hallie Hart, Staff writer More:How flashing lights are adding ‘one more element of excitement’ to Oklahoma HS football Stillwater 28, Norman 6 Three takeaways from Stillwater’s 28-6 road win over Class 6A foe Norman on Thursday night. Player of the game: Holden Thompson.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound senior running back ran the ball 30 times for 247 yards and three touchdowns. The electric night comes a week removed from his two-touchdown, 140-yard rushing performance against Yukon. Thompson, who missed all of last year's regular season with a left knee injury, recently received an offer from Division II Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Key moment: On second-and-5 from the Pioneers' 30-yard line, Thompson got loose from the Norman defenders for a 70-yard touchdown run.

The score extended Stillwater’s lead to 22 points at the end of the third quarter and slammed the door on a Tigers comeback altogether following a Norman punt return touchdown. Read option: Despite the loss, Norman wide receiver Dax Noles was the only weapon that consistently was able to rack up yardage for the Tigers.

With 11 total touches, Noles accumulated 65 yards from scrimmage and also returned a Stillwater punt 60 yards for a touchdown to give the Tigers their only score of the game. —Jordan Davis, Staff writer More:The Oklahoman's Week 3 picks for every high school football game in the state
