Soul Bowl: Douglass Comes Back To Beat Millwood

OKLAHOMA CITY – Despite the two-class difference between the schools, the annual Soul Bowl between Douglass and Millwood always proves to be exciting.

Saturday's matchup was no exception, as Douglass came back from a two-touchdown deficit to win 21-14.

Millwood won the previous two Soul Bowls by a combined nine points, and jumped out again early on Saturday.

The Trojans quickly found themselves in a 14-0 hole to Millwood in the first half.

But they managed to cut into the lead with a solid drive before the half led by running back Diontay Washington, and the Falcons led 14-6 at half.

Douglass started off the second half on a mission offensively.

After a solid drive, Washington broke a big run around the outside and dove for the endzone, but was ruled out at the five.

He came right back and took it in for a score, however, adding a 2-point conversion to knot the score at 14.

The Trojans' defense came up big in the second half while their offense continue to put up points, pitching a shutout in the second half.

Douglass recovered another Millwood fumble, and quarterback Chris Compton found receiver Dior Smiley for a big gain down the right side.

Compton would fire off a 15-yard touchdown pass to finish the drive and give the Trojans their 21-14 margin.

Millwood had a couple of chances to even up the game toward the end but couldn't convert.

Douglass (1-1) will host Star Spencer next weekend and Millwood (1-1) will travel to Bishop McGuinness.
