Jags fall short against Broken Arrow

MOORE — Westmoore wanted redemption. Even though the Jaguars’ first loss of the season was to Jenks, when Broken Arrow came to town Friday, they saw it as a chance to exact some revenge against another of the east side elite teams.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars, they found out again just how much separates them from the top teams in the state as they lost to the Tigers 20-10 at Moore Stadium in the regular season finale.

“It was probably the toughest one of the year, for sure,” Westmoore senior Lexus Lee said. “Probably the toughest loss since I’ve been at Westmoore for me. Being a senior, everybody wants to win on their senior night, knowing that we could have took this game and let it slip out of our hands.”

The loss gives the Jags (8-2, 5-2) the No. 3 seed in District 6A-2, which means it will open the 6A state playoffs on the road at Sand Springs instead of at home.

“We are still gaining some confidence and believing we can play with the top teams in the state,” Westmoore coach Billy Langford said. “Broken Arrow is one of the top teams. They are going to be a semifinal team. We hope to be there, as well.”

With its mammoth offensive line, the Tigers attempted to pound the ball against Westmoore early. But Desmond Vick, Jacob Tilley and Chase Silva slowed down the BA ground game and forced them to take shots down field.

When Westmoore got the ball late in the first quarter, Jake Dyer fumbled and the Tigers recovered on the Jags’ 23-yard line. BA had a fourth-and-inches at the 15-yard line. Instead of going for the field goal, they went for it. Westmoore swarmed Devon Thomas in the backfield to force the turnover on downs.

The gamble cost the Tigers. Two plays later, Bryson Lee hit Dahu Green for a short slant pass. The junior wideout slashed his way through the BA defense and streaked to the end zone for an 81-yard touchdown.
