Justice serves up SaberCats

Southmoore travels to Putnam City West looking to rebound

(Continued)

MOORE —

The game’s scoring started early when Southmoore quarterback Conner Uselton hit Walker for a 66-yard touchdown pass on the second play from scrimmage.

But Santa Fe answered on its first drive as Hansen quickly went to work. Three plays after a 19-yard pass completion to Kaden Mendenhall, Hansen split the middle of the Southmoore defense with a 21-yard score to tie the game at 7-7.

The score remained tied until the 4:43 mark of the second quarter when Hansen again engineered a long scoring drive. He found Aaron Jones for 20 yards before putting on a few of his own moves to score on a 27-yard run.

This time, Southmoore had an answer. The SaberCats capped a 9-play drive with a two-yard touchdown run from Nick Scott just before the half.

The Wolves came out of halftime and Hansen dialed up a 46-yard pass play to senior Malik Earl, who finished with four catches for 63 yards.

Southmoore added a 22-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 21-17 with 5:34 left in the third quarter.

The SaberCats took their only lead of the night when Walker ran eight times in a 10-play drive and he scored from two yards out, giving his team a 24-21 advantage.

The lead was short lived as Hansen scored on a two-yard run on the ensuing possession. The Wolves led, 28-24.

Southmoore will travel to Putnam City Friday to take on Putnam City West (2-2, 0-1). The Patriots are not in the same caliber as ESF.

“They need to see the big picture,” Brickman said. “They are in a very tough district. We had a tough non district schedule. They just have to keep getting better at what we do.”
