Buffs lose Wood, beat Wolves

(Continued)

McALESTER —

Eaton had also tackled Brown 3 yards shy of a first on fourth down late in the first quarter. Another turnover came one drive later, when Rhyln Stephens stripped Jacobs on a run, then fell on it at the Shawnee 36.

“You can’t turn the ball over five times and beat anybody,” Shawnee coach Billy Brown said. “And then on top of that, don’t tackle — that’s kind of the wrong way to go about playing football.”

Cade Harkins added an acrobatic interception in the second, stepping in front of receiver Kendall Gilbert to bat a pass in the air, then diving to the turf to complete the interception at Shawnee's 38-yard line. The interception came two plays after Pratt found Harkins for a 10-yard touchdown pass that made it 21-7 with 1:41 left in the half.

“We were doing nothing but running it, and doing it pretty well, so they were obviously blitzing everybody that they had,” Pratt said of the pass to Harkins. “So the linemen just let them go and go block for Cade. I just lob it over, and most of the time it’ll turn out the way it did.”

Smith rushed for 279 yards Friday, breaking off a 65-yard touchdown run late in the first to break a 7-7 tie, then adding a 93-yard touchdown run in the third that made it 28-7 McAlester. The first time, Smith got the benefit of a huge downfield block from receiver Zach Baugh, and the second time Smith tiptoed to avoid going out of bounds, then leaped over a Shawnee safety before sprinting into the end zone.

“It was a sweep, but I saw that they were running to set the edge real quick, so I just decided to go right up the middle with it,” Smith said of his first touchdown run. The second touchdown, he added, also came via a sweep.
