Jags shock Wolverines

LAWTON — Jacob Tilley heard all the talk. Even though Westmoore is 70 miles from Lawton, he heard how the Wolverines had pretty much throughout the week guaranteed themselves an easy trip to the 6A semifinals.

The Jaguars knew only one way to respond. That was to punch the Wolverines in the mouth for the first time this season and see how they answer. The plan worked as Westmoore defeated Lawton High 28-15 Saturday at Cameron Stadium in Lawton.

“You try to ignore all the talk,” Tilley said. “But you hear every now and then and it gets into your head. You just really want to shut them up and really stick it to them between the whistles. And we did that today.”

The win pushes Westmoore (10-2) into the semifinal round where it meets a familiar foe in Jenks (12-0), who defeated Midwest City to earn its spot in the final four. The Trojans defeated the Jags earlier in the season and Westmoore hasn’t forgotten it.

“It’s a big game because we get a second time,” Westmoore senior Kiante Channel said. “I always said we will see them again and we’re going to see them again.”

Jensk and Westmoore will face off at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Yukon High.

The quarterfinals started as a defensive struggle with both teams forcing the other to punt. But Westmoore struck first when quarterback Bryson Lee and Jake Dyer connected for a 16-yard touchdown pass late in the first half.

When the Wolverines tried to respond, tailback Michael Warren fumbled with two seconds left in the first quarter. Westmoore recovered on Lawton’s 10-yard line. Lee threw his second touchdown pass as he hit Deshawn Lookout in the end zone less than a minute into the second quarter.

The 14-0 deficit was the biggest for Lawton the entire regular season.
