Planning on a Playoff Game Friday? Here’s What You Need to Know:

by Elizabeth Pitts-Hibbard

The Marlow Outlaws (10-0) will host the Purcell Dragons on Friday, November 12 at Outlaw Stadium. The matchup is Round 1 of the Class 2A State Championship playoffs and kicks off at 7pm. Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association (OSSAA) has implemented new procedures and ticket prices, and Marlow High School has some exciting events planned for fans in attendance. The Marlow Public Schools Athletic Department recently outlined the information for attendees.

TICKET INFORMATION:

Digital tickets will be sold in advance via the OSSAA website, ossaa.com. Online tickets for all fans are $7.00 with a $1.35 service charge. Digital tickets must be shown to gate attendants and redeemed via phone for admittance to the game.

For those who prefer not to purchase tickets online, there will be a cash option. Tickets may be purchased at the gate for $10.00 per person (school age and up).

In honor of Veterans’ Day, OSSAA invites veterans (active duty, retired, reserve, or National Guard), as well as one guest, to attend the first round of playoffs free of charge on Friday, November 12. Veterans may show a military ID card or driver license that shows military status at the gate for free admission.

FAN INFORMATION:

Marlow Athletics encourage fans to have a “White Out” in support of the team. Outlaw fans are asked to wear white t-shirts, hoodies, or jackets to the game. In case of cold weather, the Outlaws suggest layering a white Marlow tee over a warmer layer. Marlow Public Schools has ordered white pom-poms that will be handed to fans as they enter the stadium.

HALFTIME EVENTS:

The Marlow High School Cross Country teams will be recognized and celebrated for their success in the 2021 season. Team members and coaches will take the field along with their Regional and State championship banners, plaques and trophies. The two All-State runners, Ean Hewitt and Korie Kizarr will also be recognized.

The Marlow High School Cheerleaders will perform their routine from last week’s Regional GameDay competition.

Merit Auto Group will host a “Punt, Pass, and Kick” competition for a flat-screen TV. T-shirts will be thrown to the crowd and one shirt will have a card on the inside to indicate the lucky winner. That person will be invited down to the field and, starting on one end, will punt a football toward the opposite side. From the point it lands, they will then throw it down-field. From there they will tee up the ball and try to kick a field goal. If they are successful, they’ll take home a flat-screen TV courtesy of Merit.
