TULSA — Three touchdowns in about five minutes helped fourth-ranked Tulsa Victory Christian coast to a 62-14 victory over Wyandotte in a Class 2A first-round playoff game here Friday, Nov. 10
The Bears had cut Victory’s lead in half with a 27-yard touchdown strike to Helawa Williams from Jordan Burney with about five minutes remaining.
However, the Conquerors got a 12-yard run from Darryan Moss and a 6-yard run by Tyler Hicks to open up a 28-8 advantage.
Victory scored another three times in the second frame to open up a 48-8 lead at the half, then tacked on two TDs in the third to make it 61-8.
Burney teamed with Caleb Hurst on a 29-yard touchdown pass with about six minutes left to create the final margin.
“They are a good football team, there’s no doubt,” Wyandotte head coach Brad Homer said. “They were faster, bigger, stronger than it looked on film — not that we didn’t think they were those three things, but getting on the field and playing with them, you could tell the difference.”
Hicks and Moss had three touchdowns each and Nate Hunter added two for the Conquerors.
“We went down there and tried to play the best game we could,” Homer said. “They had a lot to do with the fact we couldn’t get some things done obviously.”
Wyandotte turned the ball over on downs three times in the game.
“We didn’t go down there to punt,” Homer said.
The Bears finish the season with a 6-4 record, placing third in District 2A-7 after having been picked to miss the playoffs by coaches.
“I was extremely proud of this bunch and the adversity they went through this season,” Homer said. “I am proud of them buying into the team concept and always putting the team first, doing whatever needs to be done for our team to try to be successful.
“We’ve got unselfish kids that work hard together. That’s a recipe for success no matter what you do.”
Homer said he’s proud of his seniors, who have made the playoffs four straight year.
“That’s something to be proud of in itself,” he said.
Victory (10-1), tied for fourth in The Associated Press Oklahoma high school 2A with Chisholm, travels to No. 7 Vian (10-1) Friday.
