Muskogee, OK - The Class 6A No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School varsity football team (2-3, 1-1) fell 54-6 to No. 4 Muskogee (5-0, 2-0) Friday night at the Indian Bowl after a 50-minute rain delay. It was Sand Springs’s biggest loss since 2013, Muskogee’s biggest win in the history of the series, and the most points the Roughers have scored against the Sandites since 2006.
The Roughers won the first half 40-0 and made it 47-0 before sending in the second string and letting the Sandites on the board.
Muskogee utterly shut down the Sandite offense, holding their visitors to their lowest offensive output of the season in points, first downs, rushing yards, and total yards. They were also the only team this season not to throw the Sandites a pick.
The Roughers scored on all six first half possessions, and their first drive of the second half. Junior quarterback Ty Williams was 12-17-110-0 passing and 7-62 rushing in three quarters of action. He scored the first touchdown of the game on an 18-yard keeper and threw a 19-yard TD pass to Jordan Bradley with ten seconds left in the half.
Senior running back Jimmie Coleman led the ground game with 18 carries for 133 yards and ran in TDs from 5, 6, and 46 yards. The holder fumbled the point-after kick attempt following Coleman’s first score, and the Roughers ended the first quarter with a 13-0 lead. Isaiah Givens had a productive second quarter, scoring on runs of 7 and 3 yards.
The Sandites punted seven times and didn’t see their opponents’ side of the field till their fifth possession. Jareed Hagerman came up with fumble midway through the second period, setting up a scoring drive for the 33-0 lead.
Sand Springs’s most successful first-half drive featured two first downs and a six-play march to the Muskogee 42 before Kaleb Biglow came up with a 14-yard sack. Coleman made a 38-yard punt return to the Sandite 35-yard line, setting up a 6-play 35-yard march for the final score of the half.
The Roughers forced a quick three-and-out to start the third quarter, then scored in only four plays thanks to Coleman’s 46-yard run. Another Sandite three-and-out and the home team sent in the backups with 8:14 left in the quarter.
Muskogee punted for the first time, Sand Springs punted for the seventh time, then Muskogee punted once again. This time, however, Josh Campbell recovered a Sandite fumble on the punt return, giving the Roughers a fresh set of downs. They marched as far as the Sand Springs 22 yard-line before Lane Webster made a nine-yard sack on fourth down.
The Sandites’ next drive hit pay dirt with an 8-play 51-yard march, a fourth-down conversion, and a 21-yard touchdown pass from Ty Pennington to Jamon Sisco. The PAT was no good, however, as Kaunor Ashley recovered a fumbled hike for the Roughers.
The home team responded with a 7-play 53-yard drive, a fourth-down conversion, and a 24-yard touchdown run by Jaiden Alexander. Jacob Scheihing kicked the PAT for the final point of the game, and was 6-of-7 on the night.
Sand Springs was working on a successful drive, picking up three first downs to position themselves at the Rougher 23-yard line when time ran out.
Pennington was 13-23-107-0 for the Sandites. A sophomore and first-year starter, he holds an 8-0 TD-Interception ratio this season, scoring in all five games. Snodgrass was his leading receiver with 4 catches for 34 yards, and was the leading kick returner with 57 yards on 3 returns. Blake Jones led the ground game for the Sandites with 16 carries for 80 yards.
Senior defensive captain Jerret Haley had a big night with 17 tackles, while Webster got hot late in the game with four tackles for loss totaling 20 yards, and the team’s lone sack.
Sand Springs will look to get back to .500 when they travel to No. 14 Bartlesville (0-5, 0-2) Friday at 7:00 p.m. The Roughers will host No. 8 Sapulpa (4-1, 1-1).
