WEWOKA — The Savages made the trip to take on the Tigers of Wewoka Friday night. Both teams were 1-1 in district play, as both were more than likely playing for fourth place in A-8.

On the road, one can’t give the home team any more help, but the Savages did just that, fumbling twice in their first five playes.

Wewoka took advantage using only five plays to score twice on four and six yard runs. With both PAT’s good, the Tigers led 14-0 with 6:40 remaining in the first.

There was no Savage offense but the defense did all it could to keep Quinton in the game.

The Tigers drove from their 35 to the Savage 9. On first down, a lateral pass was recovered by Quinton, but ruled an incomplete pass.

A run on second, an incomplete pass on third, no gain on fourth, stopped for no gain on fifth down — yes, fifth down. At the time it seemed to matter, Quinton’s defense had held Wewoka.

An errant pitch by the Savages was recovered by Quinton in the end zone, for a Wewoka safety.

The Tigers led 16-0 with 1:30 before halftime.

Three Savage pass attempts and a short punt had Wewoka at the Quinton 31 yard-line.

A three-yard T.D. run six seconds before halftime made it 23-0 in Wewoka’s favor.

Both teams battled to a draw in the third.

Savage, Heath Partin, recovered a Tiger fumble at the Quinton 10 to stop a threat in the third.

Field position woulld turn in the fourth. Quinton was unable to get a punt off.

From the Savage 27, three plays later, a 12-yard Tiger pass made it 30-0 with 8:45 remaining.

The Quinton offense showed up when Shane Smith found Josh Cawyer on an 83-yard T.D. strike. Cameron Box’s kick made it 43-7.

The Tigers had 406 yards of total offense, to the Savages 164.

Quinton (1-5, 1-2) will host Stratford this week.
