SaberCats knock off Wolverines

LAWTON — Jeff Brickman really wanted to be Southmoore’s coach for nights like he had Friday when his ninth-ranked SaberCats traveled to Lawton to face the sixth-ranked Wolverines.

Even though LHS was undefeated and ranked as high as No. 1 in other state polls, Brickman knew the type of team he was taking with him. It was why he fought to get the head coaching job this year. His belief in the team paid off with a 20-17 victory at Cameron Stadium.

“It’s like I told these guys, I had some opportunities to do some other things when coach (Chris) Jensen left,” Brickman said. “I really wanted this job. I knew we were going to have a special team. I really wanted this job badly.”

The SaberCats led for much of the game before watching Lawton make a furious second-half comeback.

With just over seven minutes left in the contest, SMH got the ball on its own 5-yard line. It needed a long drive to salt the game away.

Brickman turned to his offensive line and asked them to clear the way for tailbacks Karltrell Henderson and Jaelon Walker. Southmoore took more than five minutes off the clock behind its power running game before it had to punt the ball.

Lawton took over with 1:59 left in the game, but were unable to get past midfield. The Cats watched the clock run down as they earned the biggest win of the season.

“We played a heck of a game,” quarterback Tre Edwards said. “I think this is the best game we’ve ever played.”

Henderson led the way for Southmoore with 108 rushing yards. Edwards threw for 177 yards on 10-of-15 passing.

Lawton’s Ivan Thomas racked up 138 yards on the ground in the defeat, but it wasn’t enough.

“We thought that Thomas would be a big threat, but we stopped him,” linebacker Keaton Bell said. “And we just had a great game. It makes me feel great. Awesome.”
