No upsets from Enid
ENID - Two district games, two shutouts for the Lawton High Wolverines.
Friday LHS rolled into D. Bruce Selby Stadium in Enid and walked out 42-0 winners over the Plainsmen. The win moves LHS to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 in District 6A II-2 play.
Any chance of a letdown against an Enid team that scored 38 points last week against a touted Choctaw squad was immediately put to rest as it became apparent the Plainsmen simply couldn't keep up with LHS' lines on either side of the ball.
On their second drive, the Wolverines worked the running game to perfection with three carries by senior Darreyl Patterson netting 37 yards and another by Kalin Sadler getting nine on an end-around. Sadler later hauled in an eight-yard pass from Jack Meservy for a touchdown.
Enid (2-3, 0-2) took over and picked up a first down via an offside penalty before punting. Six-plays later, LHS was in the end zone again on a one-yard plunge from Meservy. LHS faced a third-and-goal at the four before back-to-back offsides penalties set up the one-yard plunge.
Lawton High forced a third punt in the opening quarter, one that senior Bryce Birt returned 38 yards to the Enid 22 to set up the next Wolverine touchdown. It came just two plays later on a 22-yard run by Patterson.
LHS led 21-0 just 10 minutes into the game and never let up.
"I was very, very impressed with the defensive gameplan," LHS head coach Randy Breeze said. "The Enid Plainsmen are still a playoff-type team and they got dominated tonight offensively, defensively and in the kicking game. We cannot play any better. It's a great win."
A lot of LHS' success was driven by its defense that surrendered just 185 total yards, forced seven punts and intercepted Enid three times. Enid dual-threat QB Fred Lawrence was under duress all night long, especially from the Wolverine linebacking corps of Matt Leon, Levi Cain and Mahlik Hanna.
