CLAFLIN — Last Friday, the Central Plains Oilers football team battled against the Otis-Bison Cougars in a Homecoming struggle at the CPHS football field in Claflin.

Although Otis-Bison is ranked No. 3 in Kpreps 8-Man Division 2, the O-Men did not disappoint the homecoming crowd, earning a 36-12 victory over the Cougars.

Oilers coach Chris Steiner thought his team played well.

“We did what we wanted to do defensively,” he said. “On offense, we stuck to our game plan and were successful.”

The Oilers are looking to retain the winning advantage on their home turf after suffering a home loss to Victoria two weeks ago.

Just two minutes into the game, Otis-Bison earned the first six points with a 24-yard off tackle run by senior Blake Bahr. The point after touchdown failed.
