Wolverines cruise to easy win over PC West, 42-0

The Lawton High School football team needed only one half to put away the Patriots from Putnam City West Thursday night as they racked up over 500 yards of offense in the first two quarters in route to a 42-0 win in a game that was shortened due to lightning in the area.

The Wolverines scored on their first six drives of the game, tallying 28 points in the first quarter and 14 in the second quarter en route to a 42-0 lead at the break. The game continued until it was called with 2:56 left in the third quarter due to lightning near Cameron Stadium.

The Wolverines took the opening drive of the game 80 yards in seven plays to take an early 8-0 lead. Junior running back Christian Houston had five carries for 60 yards on the drive and capped off the possession with a three-yard touchdown run to put the Wolverines up 6-0. Houston would add two points after the touchdown when he caught a pass from senior Elijah Reyes on a faked extra point.

After stopping another Patriots drive, the Wolverines scored on a three-play, 55-yard scoring drive capped off by a 27-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Eric Wiley to senior receiver Demarcus Andrews. After another fake PAT turned into a two-point conversion, the Wolverines led 16-0 less than four minutes into the game.

After another defensive stop, the Wolverines made short work of their third drive, a three-play, 65-yard scoring effort that included a 39-yard pass from Wiley to senior Chateau Reed and a nine-yard scoring run by Houston for a 22-0 lead.
