CPHS Football: Sandites shutout Putnam City 35-0, Pennington scores 4 touchdowns

IMG_6993.JPG

Sophomore quarterback Ty Pennington hasn’t been named QB1 for the season yet, but he got his first varsity start Friday night against Class 6A-II No. 16 ranked Putnam City (0-2) and made a statement with a 13-21-184-0 passing performance for four touchdowns.

The Charles Page High School football team (1-1) notched its first shutout in four years, 35-0, holding the Pirates to only 80 offensive yards in their home debut at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Pennington threw touchdown passes of 17 and 25 yards to Jacob Snodgrass, 15 yards to Trey Wilkerson, and 22 yards to Jamond Cisce. Senior quarterback Braden Foster took over midway through the third period and finished 6-8-75-0 with a 41 yard score to Snodgrass. Snodgrass was the leading receiver four catches for 93 yards.

Neither team scored on their opening drives. Sand Springs marched to the Putnam 42 before Dakari Mason and James Edward combined on a sack for a turnover on downs. The Pirates then marched 37 yards for their only redzone penetration of the night before fumbling the ball away. Sand Springs drove 92 yards in 8 plays on their next drive, capped by Pennington’s 17-yard pass to Snodgrass.

Lane Webster forced a turnover on downs with a second quarter sack, setting up a 7-play 58-yard drive and 25-yard one-handed reception by Snodgrass for the 14-0 lead. The teams traded punts from there, then Brooks Dudley recovered a fumble to set up another scoring drive. This time Sand Springs needed 10 plays to march 55 yards, scoring on a 15-yard screen pass to Wilkerson. Zach Heinen’s kick made it 21-0 at the half.

Both teams turned the ball over to start the second half. Jerret Haley picked off a pass from Tyrece Romesberg and returned it 21 yards. A Wilkerson run and unsportsmanlike penalty on the Pirates queued up a 22-yard touchdown pass to Jamond Cisco with 4:07 left in the third.

Foster took over at quarterback with 3:17 left and guided the Sandites 56 yards in 7 plays, hitting Snodgrass for a 41-yard score and the final points of the game.

Both teams will have a far tougher opponent next week. Sand Springs will host Greenwood (2-0), the back-to-back defending Arkansas 6A State Champions. They are currently riding a fourteen-game win streak and have only lost three games in five seasons.

Putnam City will host Bixby (2-0), the defending 6A-II State Champions. Bixby is riding a fourteen-game win streak while the Pirates have lost their past thirteen games.

CPHS Football Preview: Sandites host Putnam City Friday

IMG_1324 (1).jpg

The Class 6A No. 12 ranked Charles Page High School varsity football team (0-1) will play its first home game of the season Friday, September 13, at 7:00 p.m. against No. 16 Putnam City (0-1). Tickets are $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $7.00 for adults.

Prior to the game, the Church That Matters Tailgate Crew will be serving up hot dogs, burgers, and chicken sandwiches with chips and a drink for only $6.00. The event will benefit the Sandite Quarterback Club this week to help cover team meals, transportation, and other football expenses throughout the season.

Last Season

The Sandites are coming off a 3-7 season that snapped a program-best six-year streak of playoff appearances. Putnam City went 0-10 last year with the worst offense and worst defense in the division.

The two teams have met only once, last season, when Sand Springs prevailed 45-24. Caden Pennington was 9-15-169-0 passing with three touchdowns. Daren Hawkins was 3-43 receiving with two touchdowns. Joel Mackey was 13-150 rushing for one touchdown and Trey Wilkerson was 12-109 for two touchdowns. Pennington and Mackey are gone now, but Hawkins and Wilkerson will help lead the new offense.

This Year

Sand Springs currently has dueling quarterbacks in senior Braden Foster and sophomore Ty Pennington. Foster got the start against Mansfield Summit (2-0) and was 7-15-46-2 in the first half. Pennington started the second half and was 6-14-45-0 with the team’s lone touchdown. Pennington will get the start against Putnam City, but quarterback competition will continue till districts begin.

Sand Springs also has a new kicker in junior Zach Heinen. Heinen connected on his only PAT attempt against Mansfield and averaged 33 yards per punt and 45 yards per kick.

Keaton Campbell was the leading receiver with 6 catches for 38 yards and a score. Tyree Atkinson led the ground game with 10 carries for 63 yards, including a 50-yard run to set up Pennington’s TD pass. Jacob Snodgrass had a 17-yard kick return, Bryson Chase made an interception, and Jerret Haley led in tackles (10) and pass breakups (2).

Sand Springs fell 41-7 to Mansfield in Week Zero and took a bye last week, while Putnam is fresh off their 50-0 loss to Putnam City North (1-0). Putnam was shutout five times last year and averaged only 5.2 points per game last year, with their best offensive performance coming against the Sandites.

The Sandites are rebuilding on defense, but have a fiercely energetic captain in Jerret Haley. Sophomore Brooks Dudley and freshman Drake Fain also made a big impact in the season opener with six tackles apiece.

Nicolas Hancock, Ryan Johnson, Josh Fincannon anchor a talented offensive line coached by Mike Edwards and Superbowl Champion Michael Bowie.

CPHS Football: Q&A with Head Coach Dustin Kinard - Season Preview

Photo Oct 04, 6 12 54 PM.jpg

The Charles Page High School varsity football team kicked off the season this past Saturday in Mansfield, Texas with a 41-7 loss in the 2nd Annual Border Brawl.

The Sandites are taking a bye week before beginning a three-game home series.

Two quarterbacks are still dueling for the starting position following the season-opening loss. Senior Braden Foster scored both of the team’s touchdowns in the final preseason scrimmage and was given the start in Mansfield, but was held to a 7-15-46-2 performance and relieved at halftime. Sophomore Ty Pennington was 6-14-45-0 in the second half for the team’s only touchdown and will be getting the start against Putnam City with Foster at backup.

13th-year Head Coach Dustin Kinard says that the QB competition will continue until Homecoming against Shawnee, and he will name the starter prior to District action beginning. Kinard owns a 63-68 record as the second-longest tenured coach in Sand Springs history. This is the first time in his career that quarterback competition has carried over into the regular season. The position is a historic strong point for Sand Springs and four of Kinard’s six QBs have gone on to play at the collegiate level.

Which players do you expect to be leaders this season?

“Josh Fincannon, Jarrett Haley.”

Haley is a 6’1” 175-pound senior defensive back. He amassed 45 tackles last year with 5 pass breakups and was named Defensive Captain for the 2019 season. He led the team with 10 tackles and 2 breakups in Saturday’s season opener.

At 6’2” and 220 pounds, Fincannon is a staple on the offensive line and was selected as an Offensive team Captain for his senior year.

Which newcomers do you expect to make a difference?

“Brooks Dudley.”

What the 5’9” 205-pound sophomore lacks in stature, he makes up for with explosive energy on both the gridiron, and the wrestling mat. Dudley only played five games last year but totaled 15 tackles and made an interception in his varsity debut as a freshman. Dudley was second on the team in Saturday’s season opener with 6 tackles.

Team strengths and weaknesses going into the season?

Strengths: “Offensive line has 3 returning starters.”

Weaknesses: “Young on Defense.”

Goals/Expectations for the year?

“Play-offs, because you can’t win it if you’re not in it.”

The Sandites have made the post-season seven times under Kinard, with semifinal appearances in 2014, 2015, and 2016, and a State Championship appearance in 2015.

Do you have any particular teams circled on the schedule?

“Always Sapulpa.”

The Highway 97 rivalry spans 92 games over 97 years and has been played continuously since 1930. Sapulpa owns a 44-43-5 lead, but Sand Springs has won the past five meetings and is 9-3 under Kinard. The series hasn’t been tied since 1944 and the Chieftains have been out front since 1945.

Last year was the first time since 2011 that we were under .500 in the regular season and failed to make the playoffs. However, we took Shawnee to overtime and had fourth quarter leads against Muskogee and Bartlesville. What do we need to do to win our toss-up games this year and finish strong in the fourth?

“Stay healthy and play one side of the ball for linemen.”

Do you have a particular coaching style/philosophy?

“Hold them accountable and that we control our attitude and effort everyday.”

Who are some of your coaching influences?

“My father - who always said you be a man of your word and do what you say you’re going to do, and do it to the best of your ability.”

What is your life like outside of coaching/teaching? Hobbies, interests, family?

“I love to travel with my wife.”

Five members of the Frontier Valley Conference spent their opening weekend in Texas, taking on the five high schools of the Mansfield School District. Jenks, Broken Arrow and Bixby came away with wins, while Sand Springs and Union took losses, marking the second year with another Oklahoma victory.

The Sandites haven’t won an opening weekend game since 2015 after beginning a recent tradition of battling out-of-state powerhouses to start the season. Last year they hosted Mansfield Summit and fell 41-28.

The Jaguars pummeled their visitors in the first half, jumping out to a 27-0 lead with 327 yard of total offense, while holding the Sandites to only 86. Sand Springs scored its lone touchdown in the third quarter, and the Jags scored fourteen points before a scoreless fourth stanza.

The game pitted three first-year quarterbacks, each trying to fill the shoes of college-bound stars. Junior Jaguar Kainen McKinney went 14-18-219-1 with two touchdowns, while Sand Springs split time between two players.

Senior Braden Foster was given the start for Sand Springs, but wasn’t named the starter for the season. He went 7-15-46-2 and was replaced at halftime by sophomore Ty Pennington, who went 6-14-45-0 for the only Sandite touchdown.

Mansfield forced a turnover on downs on the Sandites’ first possession, and McKinney threw a 28-yard pass to Jaelon Travis to cap an eight-play 48 yard drive. Sand Springs responded by marching all the way to the Jaguar four-yard line before turning the ball over once again.

Travis had another successful drive with a 6-yard scoring pass to Hal Presley, then the Jaguars got fancy with an onside kick and a trick play for yet another score. McKinney tossed a lateral to Presley who hoofed it downfield to Travis for the 21-0 lead.

David Cottrell picked off Foster two plays later, setting up a nine-play 49-yard drive and a 2-yard keeper. This time Koby Russel missed the PAT, but he was 6-of-7 for the night.

Sand Springs found the red zone once again, but Foster was picked off by Xavier Toliver. Bryson Chase snagged the first Sandite interception of the season shortly before halftime.

The home team kicked off the second half with a 6-yard touchdown run from McKinney. The teams traded punts till Mansfield got the ball back for an 8-yard scoring run by Calvion Porter. Russel’s kick gave the Jaguars their final point of the night and a 41-0 lead.

The Sandites averted the shutout on their final possession of the third quarter, marching 70 yards in six plays, thanks to a 50-yard run from Tyree Atkinson. Pennington connected with Keaton Campbell from five yards out with seven seconds left in the quarter.

Presley ended with 120 yards on six receptions for Mansfield, and Jaydon Lott was the leading rusher with nine carries for 96 yards. Zach Heinen handled kicking and punting duties for the Sandites and made his first varsity PAT with ease. Senior captain Jerret Haley led the Sandite defense with ten tackles and two pass breakups.

Sand Springs will take a bye week before hosting Putnam City Friday the 13th at 7:00 p.m. Summit will travel to Seguin High School (0-1) Thursday in Arlington.

CPHS Football: 2018 Season Recap

IMG_1399.jpg

Sand Springs Football is gearing up for a new season with a lot of new faces. Before we get into the new year’s preview, here’s a recap of the previous season.

Head Coach Dustin Kinard wrapped up his twelfth year at the helm, bringing his career record to 63-67. Last year ended a program-record six straight years of playoff appearances.

8/31/18 – Sand Springs fell 41-28 to Mansfield Summit, but ended on a high note with a two-touchdown comeback. The Frontier Valley Conference football teams went 4-1 against the Mansfield high schools, with Jenks, Union, Bixby, and Broken Arrow all winning their home games in the Texas Border Brawl. Caden Pennington threw 14-20-196-0 for two touchdowns, both to Jacob Snodgrass who had 109 yards receiving. Joel Mackey was 15-97 on the ground for two scores. Hayden Cramer had 14 tackles and Brooks Dudley caught an interception.

9/6/18 – The Sandites notched their first win 45-24 over Putnam City West and led by 35 points before sending in the backups. Pennington was 9-15-169-0 with three scores, two to Daren Hawkins and one to Colten Roberts. Mackey ran 13-150 for one score and Trey Wilkerson was 12-109 with two touchdowns.

9/14/18 – The defending Arkansas 6A State Champions were too much for Sand Springs and Greenwood rolled to a 49-13 victory. Pennington ran 15-95 for one touchdown and Mackey was 13-82 for the other.

9/21/18 – Sand Springs led Shawnee 12-6 at halftime but fell 23-20 in overtime. Mackey made an 80-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game and ran for 251 yards on 30 carries. Pennington ran for 78 yards and two scores while a steady drizzle limited the passing game. A redzone interception sent the game to overtime, and a fourth-down run from the six-yard line failed as Pennington slipped on the waterlogged turf. Shawnee kicked a 27-yard field goal for the win.

9/28/18 – Another fourth-quarter letdown as Muskogee rallied from a 27-24 deficit to a 45-27 victory. Pennington, Mackey, and Wilkerson all ran for touchdowns, and Pennington threw a 60-yarder to Hawkins. Cramer had 19 tackles.

10/5/18 – Bartlesville spoiled the Sandite homecoming 29-27 despite Sand Springs taking a 27-23 lead with under four minutes to play. Pennington was 6-13-138-1 with three touchdowns, two to Hawkins and one to Braden Foster. Mackey ran for one.

10/12/18 - The Sandites notched their first district win 35-14 against Ponca City. Both of Ponca’s touchdowns came in the final seconds of the halves and the Sandites dominated all aspects of the game. Pennington was 14-22-165-1 passing with touchdown strikes to Snodgrass and Justin Roe, and 8-64 running with two more scores. Wilkerson ran in the fifth score of the night.

10/18/18 - The eventual District and State Champions from Bixby notched their first-ever shut out of Sand Springs, 35-0.

10/26/18 - Sand Springs prevailed on Senior Night, upsetting their rivals from Sapulpa 48-34, despite the Chieftains being in one of their best seasons in recent memory. Pennington was 8-9-123-0 with a touchdown pass to Roberts, and was 28-212 with six touchdowns on the ground.

11/2/18 - The defending State Champions from Booker T. Washington beat the Sandites 48-21, but Sand Springs made a strong showing. The Hornets jumped out to an insurmountable 20-0 lead, and had the last word, but Sand Springs kept pace for much of the game. Hawkins and Luke Bratcher caught touchdown passes and Pennington scored a third on the ground. Cramer recorded a beastly sixteen tackles.

Two players from the class of 2019 committed to playing football at the collegiate level. Offensive and defensive lineman JT Bristow signed to play for Lyons College. Pennington signed to play for Northeastern State University.

CPHS Football: 2018 Sandite Season Rewind

IMG_4061.JPG

The Charles Page High School varsity football team ended their season Friday with a 48-21 rout at No. 5 Booker T. Washington. Though their 3-7 record is their worst since 2011, and they snapped a six-year playoff streak, the team arguably wasn’t any worse than they have been in recent successful years.

The talent was there. The defense was killer, the O-line was stout, the special teams impressed on both returns and return coverage. The receiving unit was indisputably better than last season and senior quarterback Caden Pennington developed into a remarkable double-threat with fourteen touchdowns by air and thirteen on the ground.

Somehow, things just didn’t shake out.

More important than the scores and the records was the demonstration of just what exactly a Sandite is. When Head Coach Dustin Kinard was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the entire community has rallied and is still rallying in support.

The second-longest tenured coach in Sand Springs history, Kinard has led the Sandites to a 63-67 record in twelve seasons with seven playoff appearances, three semifinal appearances, and one State Finals appearance.

The Sandites have held a prayer rally and numerous fundraisers to show their appreciation for his leadership. Colton’s Steak House and Rib Crib both made large donations, as did the Church That Matters Tailgate Team and the Sand Springs Rotary Club.

8/31/2018 Mansfield Summit 41 Sand Springs 28

The Sandites lost their season-opener to Mansfield Summit High School (5-4) in a Border Brawl match-up that pitted five Frontier Valley Conference teams against five Mansfield schools. They will travel to Texas next year.

While three of the Sandites’ losses were blown leads, this one was a Jaguar rout with a solid comeback attempt by the Oklahomans. A Texas State-committed quarterback led the Texans to a 34-7 first half advantage and 41-14 lead before the Sandites rallied with a 21-7 second half.

Game Leaders: Caden Pennington 14-20-196-0, 2TD passing. Jacob Snodgrass 7-109, 2TD receiving. Joel Mackey 15-97, 2TD rushing. Jaden Weiser 4/4 PAT. Mackey 2-59 kick return. Hayden Cramer 14 tackles, Brooks Dudley 1 interception.

9/6/2018 Sand Springs 45-24 Putnam City

The season looked promising when the Sandites routed Putnam City (0-10), but the win was watered down when the Pirates failed to win a game all season. Sand Springs led by as much as 35 points before sending in the backups.

Game Leaders: Pennington 9-15-169-0, 3TD passing. Daren Hawkins 3-43, 2TD receiving. Mackey 13-150, 1TD rushing. Weiser 5/6 PAT. McCallie 1-17 kick return. Cramer 8 tackles, 1 forced fumble. Brycen Peterman 3 tackles for loss, 1 fumble recovery.

9/14/2018 Greenwood 49 Sand Springs 13

The Sandites continued their recent tradition of scheduling an out-of-state powerhouse, traveling to the defending 6A State Champs from Greenwood, Arkansas (9-1). The Bulldogs took a 42-0 lead before sending in the backups.

Game Leaders: Pennington 15-95, 1TD rushing. Cramer 8 tackles.

9/21/2018 Shawnee 23, Sand Springs 20, OT

The loss to Greenwood was expected, the loss to Mansfield was unfortunate, but the Sandites didn’t really start hurting till their loss to Shawnee (2-8). Sand Springs was the better team than Shawnee this season, indisputably. Better offense, better defense, tougher schedule.

Mackey started hot with an eighty-yard TD run on the first play of the game, but things went downhill from there. A constant drizzle severely hindered Pennington’s pass game. The Sandites gave up a fumble that resulted in a touchdown, a red zone turnover on downs, and a fruitless red zone penetration that ended with the half. Both of their first half PATs failed.

The Sandites had their third failed red zone penetration late in the fourth quarter with an interception. In overtime Pennington had a wide open lane on fourth down, but slipped on the waterlogged turf to seal their fate. A Shawnee field goal secured the upset.

Game Leaders: Mackey 30-251, 1TD rushing. Cramer 13 tackles. Kaden Glass 1 fumble recovery.

9/28/2018 Muskogee 45 Sand Springs 27

Another blown lead for the Sandites, leading 27-24 to start the fourth quarter, and suffering a 21-0 fourth quarter shutout.

Game Leaders: Hawkins 1-60, 1TD receiving. Mackey 15-100, 1TD rushing. Weiser 3/3 PAT. Cramer 19 tackles.

10/5/2018 Bartlesville 29 Sand Springs 27

For the third-straight week, a blown fourth quarter lead. Up 20-16 to start the final stanza, and 27-23 with only 3:29 left, the Sandites gave up an eleven-play 88-yard touchdown drive. Pennington got the Sandites to midfield with five seconds left, but threw an interception to seal the upset.

Game Leaders: Pennington 6-13-138-1, 3TD passing. Hawkins 4-90, 2TD receiving. Pennington 13-95 rushing. Weiser 3/3 PAT. Snodgrass 3-43 kick return. Cramer 12 tackles, 1 sack. Luke Bratcher 10 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble.

10/12/2018 Sand Springs 35 Ponca City 14

The Sandites secured their first district win when they hosted Ponca City (0-10). The game could easily have been a 35-0 shutout but defensive indifference took hold and the Wildcats scored with 21 seconds left in the half and 13 seconds left in the game.

Game Leaders: Pennington 14-22-165-1, 2TD passing. Snodgrass 5-51, 1TD receiving. Pennington 8-64, 2TD rushing. Weiser 5/5 PAT. Cramer 9 tackles, 3 for loss.

10/18/2018 Bixby 35 Sand Springs 0

The loss to Bixby was expected. The Spartans (9-1) own the best defense in 6A-II and notched three shutouts this season, including the third highest-scoring offense in the state from Sapulpa.

Game Leaders: Colton Roberts 3-64 receiving. Justis Myers 5 tackles, 1 sack. Jerret Haley 4 tackles, 3 breakups. Mackey blocked kick.

10/26/2018 Sand Springs 48 Sapulpa 34

Pennington played the game of his life for an upset of the Sandites arch-rivals from Sapulpa (7-3) with seven touchdowns. His six rushing scores were the second-most scored in a single game in school history.

This game showed the Sandites’ true potential, and the “what could have been” for the season. Sapulpa beat Bartlesville and Shawnee, and Sand Springs easily handled their Highway 97 counterparts.

Game Leaders: Pennington 8-9-123-0, 1TD. Hawkins 5-77 receiving. Pennington 28-212, 6TD rushing. Weiser 6/6 PAT. Cramer 8 tackles. Cameron Smith fumble recovery.

11/2/2018 Booker T. Washington 48 Sand Springs 21

Spurred on by their prior week’s success, the Sandites made a valiant effort against the defending State Champions (7-3) but couldn’t overcome an 0-20 start.

Game Leaders: Pennington 8-13-89-0, 2TD passing. Hawkins 7-78, 1TD receiving. Pennington 22-68, 1TD rushing. Weiser 3/3 PAT. Aaron King 5-94 kick return. Cramer 16 tackles, 3 for loss.

The Class 6A-II No. 10 ranked Charles Page High School football team (3-7, 2-5) gave the defending State Champions a run for their money, but ultimately couldn’t overcome an early deficit Friday night at SE Williams Stadium.

No. 5 ranked Booker T. Washington (7-3, 6-1) topped the Sandites 48-21 on a brisk Hornet Senior Night to finish second in district play and end the Sandites’ season.

The Hornets scored on six of nine drives and punted three times, averaging five plays for 34 yards per possession. The Sandites averaged five plays and 21 yards per possession, fumbling twice, scoring thrice, punting four times, and giving up one turnover on downs.

Senior quarterback Caden Pennington was 8-13-89-0 passing with touchdown passes to Daren Hawkins and Luke Bratcher. Hawkins caught seven passes for 78 yards and Bratcher caught one pass for eleven yards and his first score of the season.

Pennington carried 22 times for 68 yards and a twenty-yard touchdown, while senior running back Joel Mackey had twelve touches for sixty yards. Jaden Weiser was a perfect three-for-three on extra points, Hayden Cramer tallied sixteen tackles, and Aaron King averaged nineteen yards on five kick returns.

Though the 48-21 score looks lopsided from the outside, the Sandites actually kept pace with the Hornets for the middle half of the game. Unfortunately the 21-21 tie was sandwiched between a 0-20 start and 0-7 finish.

Thomas Grayson scored on the Hornets’ opening drive with a 32-yard fourth-down run for a 7-0 first quarter shutout. Freshman quarterback Gentry Williams scored on a nine-yard keeper on the first play of the second quarter, then Kiero Petross returned a Pennington fumble 25 yards for the 20-0 lead. Drew Wilkie kicked the first two extra points, but Cramer prevented a two-point run on the third score.

Pennington got the Sandites on the board with a thirteen-yard strike to Hawkins, capping a four-play forty-yard drive with four minutes left in the half. The home team used their longest drive of the game to drain the clock, marching 68 yards in ten plays for a 27-7 halftime lead, scoring on a sixteen-yard pass from Williams to Gentry Dalton.

The Sandites forced a punt on the opening drive of the second half, then scored on an eleven-yard pass to Bratcher to cut it to 27-14.

Williams responded with an eighteen-yard touchdown run and a 35-yard touchdown pass to Daxton Hill to make it 41-14.

Pennington added the Sandites’ final points of the night on a twenty-yard run with 6:58 to play.

Senior backup Dwight Hamilton took over for the Hornets and capped his senior night perfectly with a fifty-yard strike to Javian Hester. Wilkie kicked the final point to complete the rout.

The Sandites finished with their first regular-season losing record since going 3-7 in 2011 and snapped a six-year playoff streak. Booker T. Washington is headed to the playoffs for the seventh straight year and will host No. 4 Del City (7-3) Friday at 7:30 p.m.

CPHS Football Halftime Report: Sandite trail defending State Champs 27-7

IMG_0050.jpg

The Charles Page High School football team is down 27-7 at halftime against the defending State Champions from Booker T. Washington.

The first quarter was heavy defense with four punts and only one first down.

Thomas Grayson was first on the scoreboard with a 32-yard fourth-down run for the Hornets, while Sand Springs punted all three of their possession.

Washington put together a six-play sixty-yard drive and freshman quarterback Gentry Williams scored with a nine-yard run on the first play of the second period.

The Hornet defense showed off once again as Kiero Petross recovered a Caden Pennington fumble and took it 25 yards for a touchdown. Drew Wilkie made his first two point-after kicks, but the Hornets attempted a two-point run this time and Hayden Cramer blew it up.

Trailing 20-0, the Sandites put together their first effective drive, picking up two first downs and traveling 32 yards before two fouls and a negative run forced them to punt on fourth-and-nineteen.

The Sandite defense came up strong once again, forcing their second three-and-out of the night, and this time the offense got hot as well. Pennington hit Daren Hawkins for ten, ran it seventeen, then hit Hawkins for thirteen in a four-play forty-yard march to avert the first half shutout. Jaden Weiser’s point after kick made it 20-7.

Washington responded handily with a ten-play 68-yard drive and sixteen-yard touchdown pass from Williams to Gentry Dalton. Wilkie kicked the final point of the half.

Class 6A-II No. 10 ranked Charles Page High School (3-6, 2-4) travels to No. 5 Booker T. Washington (6-3, 5-1) to wrap up the regular season, but despite their losing record, their season might not end there.

This will be the Sandites’ first losing season since 2011, but thanks to circular losses, there’s still a slim chance that they could extend their six-year playoff run with a little help from Ponca City. Technically they could also finish with a winning record if they win out for the gold ball. Stranger things have happened.

Bixby, Booker T., and Muskogee have the top three spots on lock, but the bottom berth is still open for discussion. Sapulpa will more than likely win it, but with two key upsets the Sandites could sneak past them.

First, Sand Springs has to beat Booker T. Second, Ponca City has to knock off Sapulpa. Neither is likely, and the latter is far less likely than the former, but neither is impossible.

Sapulpa owns the No. 5 offense and the Wildcats are tenth in defense. Sapulpa has the No. 9 defense against Ponca’s No. 13 offense. Far from an even matchup.

In the long shot chance that Ponca City upsets Sapulpa, it’ll drop the Chieftains to 3-4 in district play. If Sand Springs beats Booker T., they’ll improve to 3-4. Bartlesville and Shawnee will play each other in Week Ten, and the winner will improve to 3-4, creating a three-way tie for the playoff berth.

Sapulpa beat both Bartlesville and Shawnee. Sand Springs beat Sapulpa but lost to Bartlesville and Shawnee. The head-to-head record will be 1-1 for all three teams, leaving the tie-breaker to district points. That’s where Sand Springs has the edge. Bartlesville could only finish with -19 at most. Shawnee could only finish with -33 at most. If Sapulpa loses by only a single point they’ll have -24. If Sand Springs wins by only a single point they’ll have -3 to clench the playoff berth.

The Sandites won’t have any say on what goes down in Sapulpa, but they can do their part by upsetting the defending State Champions at 7:00 p.m. in Tulsa.

Last Week

Sand Springs put together four quarters of good football for the third time this season thanks to a dominant performance from the offensive line, propelling Caden Pennington to a career-best performance. Pennington was 8-9-123-0 by air for one touchdown and 28-212 on the ground for six scores.

The Sandites amassed 474 yards, 351 on the ground, in their highest-scoring performance of the season. The defense surrendered 303 yards to the No. 5 offense in 6A-II, forcing three punts and one turnover on downs to hold the Chieftains to their season average.

Booker T. Washington had a lackluster performance against a winless Ponca City, suffering a 7-0 first half shutout before rallying with 27 unanswered points in the second half. Defensively they gave up only 91 yards on four receptions and 50 yards on 38 carries.

This Season

The Sandites have had a tough year with three come-from-behind losses. They have no problem scoring and no problem getting stops, but both sides of the ball have a hard time finishing. They led Muskogee to start the fourth quarter, led Bartlesville till the final five seconds, and lost to Shawnee in overtime. Despite the rough start, they have been heavy competitors in the majority of their games and their hard work paid off with a Week Nine Senior Night rivalry upset. They could just as easily be 6-3, 5-1 right now.

The Hornets got off to a rough start and didn’t improve to a winning record till Week Seven, though only one of their losses came at the hands of an Oklahoma team. A major second-half team, they average only two points in the first quarter, ten in the first half, and 22 in the second half. They’ve suffered seven first-quarter shutouts and came back to win four of those. They suffered four first-half shutouts and came back to win one of those.

The Series (Booker T. Washington 14-7)

The Sandite-Hornet rivalry is a short one, dating back to only 1986 overall and 2012 in its current series. The Hornets won 8-4 from 1986-1997, won back-to-back in 2006-2007, and are 4-3 in the current series.

The Class 6A No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (3-6, 2-4) pulled off a huge 48-34 upset of No. 7 Sapulpa (6-3, 3-3) Friday at Memorial Stadium. The game doubled as the Sandites’ biggest rivalry, and their Senior Night. It was the fifth-straight victory for Sand Springs in the Highway 97 Rivalry.

The Sandites jumped out to a 20-0 lead with a 13-0 first quarter shutout before letting the  Chieftains back into the game. The bitter foes exchanged punches back-and-forth throughout the game, and the first-quarter was the difference maker in the fourteen-point win.

Senior quarterback Caden Pennington and the stellar Sandite O-Line were the stars of the show as Pennington carried 28 times for 212 yards and six rushing touchdowns. Six rushing touchdowns is the second-most ever scored in a single game by a Sandite, behind only Payton Scott’s seven-score performance in 2017. His 212 yards were a career-best and the second-best performance of the season for any Sandite. He also had a solid 8-9-123-0 passing performance for seven total touchdowns and 335 total yards.

Pennington scored on runs of one yard, three yards, and two yards for the 20-0 lead before Sapulpa got on the board. Jaden Weiser made two point-after kicks but a two-point play failed to convert after a bad hike. Pennington notched a career-best 61-yard run on the third scoring drive.

Cameron Smith recovered a fumbled kick after the second drive, but the Chieftains made their first defensive stop with a pass break-up at the end zone and forced a punt.

Sapulpa’s Marcus Esparza scored on an eighteen-yard run with a kick from Kaivon Mortazavii. The Sandites retaliated with a five-play 72-yard drive, featuring a spectacular 53-yard pass to Daren Hawkins, and three-yard touchdown run from Pennington. Chieftain quarterback Elijah Williams was next in the endzone on a 26-yard run for the final points of the half.

The Sandites kicked off the second half with a twelve-play 71-yard scoring drive and six yard touchdown pass from Pennington to Roberts. Esparza made a seventeen-yard scoring run just four plays later, but Mortazavi missed the extra point to make it 34-20.

The two treams traded three-and-outs, then Pennington scored on a 33-yard run at the start of the fourth quarter. Esparza scored from seven yards out, Pennington scored from one-yard, then Esparza scored again with fourteen seconds to play.

Roberts and Garrett McCallie successfully fielded onside kick attempts on the Chieftains’ last two drives to prevent any comeback attempt.

Daren Hawkins recorded five receptions on the night for 77 yards, Joel Mackey carried fourteen times for 75 yards and Trey Wilkerson had sixteen carries for 67 yards. Aaron King, Jacob Snodgrass, and Justin Roe averaged seventeen-yards per kick return, Cameron Smith averaged 28 yards per punt, and Hayden Cramer led the defense in tackles.

Sand Springs scored seven touchdowns on nine drives with two punts, averaging eight plays and 51 yards per possession. Sapulpa punted three times and gave up one turnover on downs, averaging 38 yards on six plays per possession.

The Sandites will return to action in their season finale Friday at No. 3 Booker T. Washington (6-3, 5-1). Sapulpa will host No. 15 Ponca City (0-9, 0-6). The Hornets defeated the Wildcats 27-7 in Week Nine.
