OKLAHOMA CITY — Red Oak will play for the gold ball on Saturday.
The Class B-No. 2 Eagles (26-4) prevailed over No. 10 Leedey, 62-41, at the Big House on Friday in the state semifinals. Red Oak pulled off a wire-to-wire victory, as they did on Thursday against Kinta, and have yet to trail in the state tournament. They had built up a 23-6 advantage on the Bison at the end of the first quarter.

The family and I headed to the State Fair last Saturday afternoon for our annual food pilgrimage.
We have improved our experience and efficiency every year and this year made it in and out in a little over 2 hours!
For the second year in a row, we parked on the far northwest side, came in that entrance, headed south along the western column of food trucks towards the Big House, hooked a left inside the Bennett Event Center to cool down while crossing over to the eastern column of food trucks and fair games.
We then headed north along the eastern column towards the Farm Expo Center and then back out the Northwest Entrance, making one big loop.
It worked very well and will probably be the strategy moving forward. It covers all our main stops without ever having to double back or pointlessly wander around the Fairgrounds.
I must add, for high school basketball fans, the new Big House is coming along quite nicely with a lot of the initial framework completed. It will be interesting to see the progress made when we get to state tournament time in March.
As for the food and drink stops, they were the usual suspects.
First, and always first, the #1 must-get fair food staple, the corndog from Poncho Dog!
The best corn dog that I eat - all year long - will be this one from the State Fair, hands down. We all went with the $10 Jumbo Dog instead of the $6 regular dog and this seemed to be a great decision for everyone involved.
