Tigers bash Cats 41-28

MOORE — Two minutes into the game, it looked like Norman High was in trouble. No. 6 Southmoore took the opening kickoff at its own 20 and effortlessly marched down the field. The SaberCats went 75 yards in just three plays before Tre Edwards punched it in to put Southmoore on top 7-0.

It seemed liked the Tigers might be in for a long night, and it didn’t look any better after NHS went three-and-out on its first possession.

Luckily for the Tigers, games aren’t decided in the first five minutes.

Behind A’erion Hines, NHS stormed back after the rough start, scoring 28 straight points to bury Southmoore early in the second quarter. The Tigers got another boost on a kick return touchdown, and Southmoore never got within a score again as NHS held on to win 41-28.

It was an important win for the eighth-ranked Tigers (6-1, 4-0), who believe they can win a loaded District 6A-4 and are in position to after Friday’s victory. NHS is now tied with Edmond Santa Fe at the top after Santa Fe defeated Lawton 68-28 on Thursday. Southmoore (5-2, 2-2), is reduced to hoping for an upset to regain a shot at the top.

A’erion Hines delivered on both the hard yards and the big plays, from his 1-yard touchdown run in the first to put NHS on the board to his later highlight-reel touchdown scampers of 42 and 50 yards, he carried the Tigers, finishing with 182 yards and four touchdowns on 11 carries.

“We knew Southmoore had a strong offense and could score at any time,” Hines said,” so my objective tonight was just to do all we could do to keep them off the field.”

Southmoore tried to fight back after falling behind big. Edwards proved elusive all night for the Tigers, and he finished with two rushing touchdowns and 97 yards, while adding 161 passing yard and another score. Running back Karltrell Henderson, whom Nation called “one of the premier backs in the state” prior to the game, had 118 yards a score, but was partially slowed by the SaberCats’ need to throw the ball to conserve time.
