CATOOSA - Christian Folks scored three touchdowns to lead the Will Rogers Middle School eighth graders to a 32-14 victory over Catoosa here Thursday night.
The seventh-grade Wardogs suffered a 20-13 loss in their game.
Folks, who now has scored six times in two games, got thinks rolling for Will Rogers when he returned a punt 54 yards. Garrett Chase booted the two-point conversion.
Folks added a 35-yard run with 2:30 until intermission. The extra point kick by Chase made it 16-0.
On Catoosa's ensuing possession, Stone Collins stripped the ball from an Indian running back and sprinted 38 yards for a touchdown. The PAT kick by Chase ballooned the WRMS lead to 24-0.
The final TD by Folks was a 60-yarder with 4:42 remaining in the third quarter. Chase again was successful on the PAT kick.
"Christian is a great athlete," WR eighth-grade head coach Jeremy Herd said. "He is the prime example of hard work pays off, and that's what this team has done. Last week we started out slow. So I told the team before the game to go make a statement and show them how hard you work and who the better team is and they did, everyone did."
Catoosa got both of its touchdowns in the final 4:28 of the game.
"Everybody on defense played their responsibility, the offense played sound football and special teams took it up another notch," Herd said. "You can't ask for anything more. I'm very proud of this group. They are building a future for Wardog football."
In the seventh-grade game, Will Rogers (0-2) created a 6-6 tie in the second quarter on a 2-yard touchdown run by Andrew Reavis. A fumble recovery by Daniel Salazar set up the scoring drive.
Catoosa grabbed the momentum by scoring a touchdown with three seconds remaining in the half. The conversion failed, but the Indians were on top 12-6.
The hosts scored a final TD with 4:35 remaining, then added the two-point conversion kick.
