Ground & pound ‘Cats

(Continued)

MOORE —

Southmoore didn’t waste any time showing Edmond what its game plan was going to be on the night. They gave the Bulldogs a heavy dose of Walker on the opening drive of the game. The senior tailback carried the team 65 yards down to Edmond’s 15 yard line.

Speed then came in and finished off the drive with a a two-yard touchdown run. The SaberCats took six minutes off the clock.

Edmond tried to answer back, but safety Tristan Johnson intercepted Mayerske on the Bulldogs’ first possession. It led to another Speed touch down and a 14-0 advantage with 2:23 left in first quarter.

“They line up in a certain front and I knew if they were in that certain front, we could really attack it,” Southmoore coach Jeff Brickman said. “The first two drives, they were in that front and we had a lot of success. After that second drive, they changed what they were going to do.”

Edmond Memorial didn’t complete a pass or pick up a first down on its first three possessions of the night. The SaberCats’ defense had the them shut down most of the first half.

However, the Cats gave them a chance when they were forced to punt from deep in their own territory and the kick went 14 yards. The Bulldogs turned it into a 29-yard field goal attempt that was wide left.

In the second half, the Bulldogs began to feed Warren Wand the football. The 5-7, 170-pound tailback weaved his way in and out of the clutches of the Southmoore defenders.

But the Cats held them to a 42-yard field goal.

Southmoore entered the fourth quarter leading 14-3 and in complete control. Even after Walker and Speed both went down with cramps in the same series, Darrien Moss took over where they left off and got them down to the 8-yard line.
