LAWTON HIGH NOTEBOOK/Week 4
Offense lights it up
Lawton High came into its game against Sapulpa averaging 41 points per game. The offense had not been an issue other than just not being able to be on the field enough against MacArthur.
So it came as no surprise that LHS had the ability to throw up 61 points on Sapulpa, but what may have turned some heads was the 47-0 lead... at halftime.
The first-team offense only played the first half and rolled up 472 yards of offense, including a stellar 21-of-23, 367-yard, five-touchdown half from senior quarterback Jack Meservy.
"We're really playing well offensively," LHS head coach Randy Breeze said. "Jack really threw the ball on the money and threw it on time real well. When the quarterback is 21 of 23, it's a great night. We got some people running wide open and hit them with big plays. The offensive line played well and (Sapulpa's) defense just didn't match up well against us."
On top of the passing success was a rushing attack that finally finished a game with more than 100 yards. Senior Darreyl Patterson cleared 100 yards for the second time in two weeks with 102. Sophomore Trey Curry picked up right where Patterson left off with a team-high 102, all in the second half.
"Nobody is surprised when Darreyl Patterson rushes for 100 yards. He's one of the better backs around," Breeze said. "We were real pleased with the pup. Tre Curry rushing for 100 yards makes us feel a whole lot better at that position because we'd like to play Darreyl on defense because he's a big part of it. This will help us do that."
Defense returns to form
A week after giving up 399 yards and 35 points to MacArthur, the first-team defense surrendered just 61 total yards in the first half to Sapulpa. The Chieftains didn't earn a first down until the 2:46 mark of the second quarter.
