The Class 6A-II No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (2-5, 1-3) gave up a 28-0 first-half shutout to the No. 2 Bixby Spartans (6-1, 4-0) Thursday evening at Memorial stadium.
The Spartans needed only seven plays to travel 57 yards for the first score of the game. Sophomore quarterback Mason Williams connected with Cade Cavender from 33 yards out on their opening possession.
Sand Springs converted three first downs on their opening drive but stalled out at midfield and had to punt. Bixby was even more lethal on their next drive, traveling 89 yards in seven plays with a fifty-yard scoring run from Braden Roller.
Caden Pennington threw his fourth interception of the season on the next drive but the Sandite defense came up big and forced their first punt of the night.
The Sandites’ next drive was also fruitless and the Spartans scored just a minute into the second quarter on a 53 yard run from freshman Braylin Presley.
The home team made their first red zone penetration after Pennington broke a pair of tackles for an incredible fifteen-yard run on fourth down. Unfortunately, he threw his second interception of the night at the one-yard line.
Clayton Barbour made a 32-yard interception return, setting up a five-play 67-yard scoring march for the Spartans. Roller ran it in from one yard out for the final score of the half and a 28-0 lead.
Pennington was 4-9-82-2 passing in the first half with eleven carries for 36 yards to lead the offense. Williams led the Spartans with a 6-9-125-0 passing performance.
