6’6” Sophomore Jaeden Hurd had a career night Tuesday, leading Class 6A No. 5 ranked Charles Page High School (15-6, 9-4) to a 79-51 victory in Bixby (3-18, 1-12). The Sandite scored eighteen points and snagged eight rebounds at the Whitey Ford Sports Complex.

Sand Springs previously defeated the Spartans 84-43 last month, so Head Coach Eric Savage gave his second string far more game time on Tuesday. The boys only led 31-27 at halftime, but doubled the Spartans in both the third and fourth quarters.

Cale Savage was second among the Sandites with sixteen points, Cole Durkee added twelve, and Cason Savage had a career high eleven. Sam Anderson made his second appearance of the season and scored his first career three-pointer.

The teams were tied 13-13 after the first quarter, following a late three from Cason Savage. The Spartans led five times before Sand Springs went on a six-point run in the second period and never looked back. They tied it only once more, at 25-25, but Cale Savage hit back-to-back threes to end the half.

Things were still close midway through the third till the Sandites blew things wide open with an eighteen-point run spanning two periods. All eleven varsity players saw action for only the second time this season.

Xavier Glenn led the Spartans with seventeen points, Braden Weaver and Conner Loney scored eleven apiece, and Devin Crites added ten.

Sand Springs will wrap up the regular season Friday in the second installment of Highway 97 Rivalry. The Sandites will host No. 4 Sapulpa (17-3, 10-2) who they previously defeated 70-64 last month. Sand Springs is 5-5 against the Chieftains during the Eric Savage era, and have won their last three meetings. Sapulpa last defeated the Sandites in the 2017 Area playoffs.
