The Ada High School football team will host a struggling Durant team tonight in a fall break matchup at Norris Field.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. inside Koi Ishto Stadium.
Durant enters the contest at 0-6 on the season and is off to an 0-3 start in District 5A-3 play. Ada stands at 3-2 and 2-1.
The Cougars hold a hefty 61-12-2 lead in the longtime series with the Lions and have won three straight against their rivals from the south. Durant defeated Ada 14-7 in a non-district contest in 2015.
The Lions are 3-20 over their past 23 outings.
Ada head coach Chris Berus said the past — including the first six games of this season — will mean nothing when the football is kicked off tonight.
“We discuss that stuff often. Like I tell our guys, we’re too far away from thinking we’ve arrived to look at somebody else for what they are or what they aren’t. We have to make sure we are where we need to be, and we’re not there yet,” he said. “Our effort, our tenacity and how hard we play the game should be the same from week to week, no matter who we play.”
