CPHS Football: Comeback attempt falls short, Sandites fall 24-14 to Ponca City

Blake Jones is swarmed by defenders in a Thursday night loss to Ponca City.

Blake Jones is swarmed by defenders in a Thursday night loss to Ponca City.

The Class 6A-II No. 13 ranked Charles Page High School varsity football team (2-5, 1-3) was unable to overcome a rocky first half Thursday night against No. 11 Ponca City (4-3, 2-2), and fell 24-14. The win gave Ponca their best record since 2005, which was also the last time the Wildcats won at Veterans Memorial Stadium. The loss snapped a seven-year winning streak against Ponca.

Things could have gone very differently had the Sandites not gotten off to such a tough start. On their opening drive the home team marched 71 yards in only four plays to set up a first and goal at the 7-yard line. Trey Wilkerson had a touchdown run negated by holding, then Pennington threw a touchdown pass to Keaton Campbell that was also called back. Finally, a 32-yard field goal attempt by Zach Heinen missed, and the Sandites walked away scoreless.

The Sandite defense forced a quick three-and-out with tackles for loss from Alexa Favela and Lane Webster, but the Wildcat defense was equally potent. Nate Collins tackled Tyyee Atkinson for a loss and Travaugh Tipton picked off Pennington’s pass, setting his team up for a seven-play 75-yard drive, capped by a two-yard scoring run from Kyter Welch. Spencer Ball kicked the PAT and the visitors never trailed.

Ponca got its third takeaway of the game midway through the second quarter and converted it into points only three plays later when Justin Andrews found Sam McKinney for a 48-yard touchdown pass and 14-0 lead.

The Sandites’ sixth possession of the night was a quick three-and-out, and Ponca spent the rest of the half draining the clock before kicking a 34-yard field goal and taking a 17-0 advantage into the locker room.

Sand Springs had a more productive second half, forcing a punt on Ponca’s opening drive and marching 80-yards in nine plays for a 14-yard touchdown pass from Pennington to Jamon Sisco. The Sandite defense held Ponca to negative yardage and a punt, and the offense put the game back in reach with a nine-play 48-yard drive and three-yard touchdown run from Wilkerson. Heinen kicked the PAT to make it 17-14 with 10:34 to play.

Ponca retaliated with a methodical eleven-play 52-yard march and two-yard touchdown run from Andrews to make it 24-14 with only 4:11 left.

Sand Springs converted one fourth down on their next drive, and went for a second from their own 36-yard line, but the pass was broken up, giving the Wildcats prime real estate. It was the home team’s turn to make a fourth-down stop, with Jerret Haley preventing a score from four yards out. By then only twelve seconds remained, and the Wildcats had secured the win.

Pennington broke 200 yards passing for the second-straight week, going 13-23-202-1, while Andrews was 8-16-92-0. Campbell was 6-134 receiving for his second-straight triple-digit performance, and accounted for 205 all-purpose yards. Sisco was 5-52 receiving for a career-high. Haley led the Sandite defense in total tackles. Lennox Sunneagle came up big for the Wildcats with two sacks, and Camdon Fleming had a fumble recovery.

The Wildcats will look to continue their historic turnaround season when they host No. 12 Bartlesville (1-6, 1-3) Friday at 7:00 p.m. The Sandites will take to the road Friday when they battle the defending State Champions in Bixby (7-0, 4-0).

CPHS Softball: Moore comes from behind for 8-7 win at State Tournament

Rogers State University-committed senior Sabrina Usher went 4-for-4 at the plate to score four RBI and one run.

Rogers State University-committed senior Sabrina Usher went 4-for-4 at the plate to score four RBI and one run.

Shawnee, OK - For four inning it looked like the Class 6A No. 6 ranked Charles Page High School fast pitch softball team (23-13) would pull off a major upset against No. 3 Moore (26-10) Thursday afternoon at the State Tournament. But their 7-2 advantage evaporated with a mistake-ridden fifth inning and the Lions got the 8-7 win.

Sand Springs outhit their foes 12 to 4 in a lopsided offensive performance, but gave up six hits and committed three errors to give the win away.

The Sandites came out swinging early in the game with singles from Rachael Jones and Sabrina Usher, but Jones was outed on a fielder’s choice and Usher and Aliyah Taff were left stranded. Gracie St. Hilaire led off the Lions with a single in the bottom of the inning but never made it past second base.

Avery Tanner and Drew Hawkins hit singles in the second inning, but Tanner was outed in a doubled play. Reagan Rector walked and Madison Lee hit an RBI single to put the Sandites on the board. Jones and Usher continued their hot streak with back-to-back doubles. Jones brought in Rector and Lee, and Usher scored Jones for the 4-0 lead.

Sand Springs stranded one in the third and the Lions came in to score two runs. Moore put two on base with a walk and a fielder’s choice, and Ashtyn Barrett hit a 2RBI single to score Rylie O’Steen and St. Hilaire.

Rector hit a single in the fourth, Lee reached on error, and Usher hit her fourteenth home run of the season for the 7-2 advantage. Then thing began to fall apart.

Moore made a big comeback in the fifth inning with two hits, three walks, a wild pitch, and a pair of errors. Kennedy Sherer, Kourtney Griffith, Zeta Brown, Taylor McKittrick, Kristen Whitehouse, and Emiaj Self all scored runs for the come-from-behind 8-7 lead.

Tanner caught a line drive in the sixth to strand loaded bases, but the Sandites failed to capitalize on it. Usher and Felicity Horn hit singles in the top of the seventh, but Jaden Jordan grounded into a double play, with Whitehouse putting out courtesy runner Brooklyn Harper at third and making the throw to second to out Horn and clinch the win.

Usher ended her high school career with a perfect four-for-four batting performance, scoring four RBI and one run. Taff (13-8, 17-14) got the loss in the pitcher’s circle with four hits and six walks.

Ashlynn Haley got the start for Moore, throwing ten hits, three strikeouts, and one walk in 3.1 innings. Kaylee Lovekamp picked up the win with two hits and one strikeout in 3.2 inning.

Moore will play No. 7 Edmond Memorial (26-8) Friday at 11:00 a.m. on Field 3. The Bulldogs upset No. 2 Deer Creek (26-10) 9-3 in Friday’s 11:00 a.m. game. Memorial is riding an eight-game win streak, including three-straight upsets. Moore swept Memorial this season with wins of 5-1 and 5-0.

The Sandites outscored their foes 22-19 for the remainder of the set, but were unable to overcome the early deficit.

The Sandites had a stronger start in game two, taking a 4-2 lead with kills from Vanessa Wyrick and Cloe Campfield. Heather Brumley kicked off a 9-1 run for the resurgent Sabercats who coasted to a 25-14 win.

Jordan posted a kill and Upthegrove served an ace for a 2-0 start and Southmoore never trailed in set three. Upthegrove secured the 25-19 win on a tipped ball to complete the sweep.

CPHS Football: Bartlesville stuns Sand Springs 54-34

Daren Hawkins snapped a 33-game streak of scoreless games for the Sandite Defense, scoring on an 83-yard pick six.

Daren Hawkins snapped a 33-game streak of scoreless games for the Sandite Defense, scoring on an 83-yard pick six.

A 7-14-163-1 passing performance from Ben Winters, a 35-217 rushing performance from Laken Clowdus, and 141 penalty yards were too much for the Sandites to overcome, and the previously winless Bruins stunned the Charles Page High School football team Friday night at Custer Stadium.

The Class 6A No. 12 ranked Sandites (2-4, 1-2) fell 54-34 to No. 13 Bartlesville (1-5, 1-2) on the Bruins’ Homecoming after an insurmountable 21-0 second quarter shutout.

Sand Springs got off to a hot start and a 14-13 first quarter lead, but was left in the dust in the second quarter. Halftime adjustments resulted in a second-half tie and the home team secured its biggest win over the Sandites since 2010 with its highest-scoring game ever in the series.

Ty Pennington connected with Campbell on a 73-yard touchdown on the very first play from scrimmage. Zach Heinen kicked the PAT, and the home team found themselves down 7-0 only 22 seconds into the game.

The Bruins quickly responded with an 8-play 64-yard march, capped by a five-yard touchdown run from Laken Clowdus. Dylan McCoy kicked the PAT to tie things up with 8:14 in the quarter.

Bartlesville forced a quick three-and-out and marched down to the Sandite 17, but Daren Hawkins picked off Ben Winters’s pass for an 83-yard touchdown, ending a 33-game scoreless dry spell for the Sandite defense.

Winters made up for the error with a 53-yard strike to Caden Davis, but McCoy missed the extra point and the Sandites held their lead, 14-13.

The second quarter was all Bartlesville as they forced another three-and-out and took advantage of a major Sandite Special Teams mistake. A bad hike traveled past Heinen, who recovered it at his own 18  yard line, setting up the Bruins for a five-play drive and one-yard run from Seth Long for the 20-14 lead.

Sand Springs made it to the Bartlesville 30 but turned the ball over on downs, and the Bruins responded with a five-play 70-yard march and 44-yard touchdown pass from Winters to Davis. The defense came up strong again as Taton Hopkins made the first ever interception against Pennington and returned it 40 yards. Six plays later, on a fourth-and-seven, Winters found Long from 26 yards out and McCoy gave his team the 34-14 lead shortly before the half.

The Sandites forced a punt to start the second half and put together a methodical 15-play 78-yard march, ending in Pennington’s first career rushing touchdown, from six yard out. Bartlesville responded with an 8-play 83-yard drive and 2-yard touchdown run from Clowdus. McCoy missed the PAT and ended the night 4-of-6 after being replaced by Taton Hopkins.

Rocky Shuman came up big for the Bruins to stop a fourth-down run from Trey Wilkerson at the end of the third. The Bruins only needed three plays to drive 42-yards, scoring on a 37-yard run by Clowdus. Hopkins kicked the PAT for the 47-21 lead ten seconds into the fourth.

Sand Springs had its quickest drive of the night, going 72 yards in five plays, scoring on a 1-yard run from Jacob Snodgrass out of the wildcat formation.

Two punts later and Bartlesville scored their final touchdown of the night on an 8-yard run from Clowdus. Sand Springs finished the night with a 4-yard pass from Pennington to Snodgrass, and a two-point pass attempt fell incomplete.

Pennington ended the night 15-38-296-1 with career-high yardage, but a career-low completion percentage, his first career interception, and his first career rushing touchdown. Campbell was 6-139 receiving and Snodgrass was 7-115. The two were well over 200 all-purpose yards as Campbell had 5 kick returns for 92 yards and Snodgrass had 4 for 98.

The Sandites will look to get back in the win column with a Thursday night Fall Break home game against No. 11 Ponca City (3-3, 1-2). Bartlesville will host No. 1 Bixby (6-0, 3-0) Thursday.

CPHS Volleyball: Sandites win 3-1 thriller at Bixby to finish season 5th in FVC

The Class 6A No. 12 ranked Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (18-13) traveled to Bixby Tuesday evening for their final match of the regular season. The Sandites won a 3-1 thriller to secure the No. 5 position in the Frontier Valley Conference.

Despite winning three sets to one, the Sandites only scored four more points than their host team overall, and two of the four sets went into extra rallies. Wichita State University-commit Sophie Childs was a perpetual pain in the Sandites’ side, scoring 24 kills with two aces and five blocks.

The Sandites took a 4-0 lead in set one with kills from McKenzie Harris and Madison Burris and an ace from Raylynn Mong. Childs scored back-to-back kills for the Spartans’ first lead at 13-12. The game tied eleven times with five lead changes. Mong took the Sandites’ second lead with an ace at 22-21, Bixby scored two, Devree Youngblood scored an ace at 24-23 and a kill at 26-25, but the final Sandite lead and the match point came on a pair of Spartan errors at 28-26.

Game two was another back and forth affair that saw fourteen tie scores and nine lead changes in the longest set of the season for either team. Thirteen total players scored in the 32-30 Sandite win. Youngblood led all of them with seven points, including the match-point kill, followed by Campfield and Jacelyn Smith with six apiece.

Game three went to the home team who won four-straight rallies to secure the 25-22 victory. Just like the prior two sets, neither team led for long and the set tied fourteen times. Abby Armstrong scored a kill to tie it at 22-22, Skyler Roth served an ace for the lead, and Childs scored back-to-back kills for the win.

The fourth and final set was a mostly Sand Springs-led foray and though the Spartans tied it four times, they didn’t take their first lead till three-straight Sandite errors made it 15-14. Burris took a 16-15 lead with a kill, Baylea Norris killed to make it 17-16, Campfield made it 18-17 with back-to-back kills, then Norris and Hallie Miller made kills for the 19-18 advantage.

It looked like the Spartans would take the match to five sets when they pushed their lead to 22-19, but they committed four consecutive errors to let the Sandites back in the game. Harris and Vanessa Wyrick combined on a block and Harris knocked down a kill for the 25-22 win.

Three Sandites recorded double-doubles and Burris had a triple-double with 10 kills, 14 assists, and 11 digs. Campfield had 14 kills and 10 digs, Mong had a team-high 18 assists and 11 digs, and Youngblood had a team-high 15 kills and a team-high 25 digs.

The Sandites finished the season with a 5-4 conference record for the second-straight year to place fifth out of ten teams. Bixby is currently sixth in the standing with one match left. If they don’t upset No. 8 Jenks on Thursday then they will finish seventh, a drop from fourth last season. Both teams will find out their Regional Playoff assignments Wednesday.

The Programs

Sand Springs is coming off a 3-7 season but prior to that was riding a program-best six straight years of playoff appearances. They are 65-70 (.481) under thirteenth-year Head Coach Dustin Kinard. The Sandites own one gold ball, from 1966, and made their last State Finals appearance in 2015.

Bartlesville went 4-6 last season under first-year Head Coach Lee Blankenship, who turned over the program to former Defensive Coordinator Jason Sport shortly after the season concluded. Their last winning record and playoff appearance came in 2015. They have never won a State title.

Bartlesville has had three high schools with four names in the town’s history. Sand Springs and Central High went 3-3 before Central was split into College High and Sooner High. Sooner High School led the Sandites 6-2 before it was consolidated with College High. College High led the Sandites 10-4 before being renamed Bartlesville High School in 1982. Since Bartlesville schools were reunified they lead the series 20-15.

CPHS Softball: Sabrina Usher hits grand slam in 19-1 playoff win over Enid

The Charles Page High School fast pitch softball team (20-11) got off to a great start Tuesday afternoon at the Regional Playoffs with a 19-1 run-rule win over Enid (5-27). The game was their second-biggest win of the season and advanced them to the 4:00 p.m. game against the winner of Choctaw (15-12) vs. Sapulpa (8-17).

Madison Lee and Jolee McNally reached on bunt singles in the top of the first inning and Sabrina Usher was hit by pitch to load the bases, setting up Rachel Jones and Felicity Horn with RBI singles. Avery Tanner hit a 2 RBI single and Reagan Rector had a 2 RBI double for a 6-0 lead before the Pacers came in to bat. Enid scored one run on three singles in the bottom of the first, with Tiara Henry batting in Mariah Pryor. 

The second inning was fruitless for both teams, but the Sandites got hot with seven hits in the third. Tanner batted in Horn and scored on a passed ball, then Rector drove in Drew Hawkins to make it 9-1. Usher hit her twelfth home run of the season and first grand slam to score Rector, Lee, and McNally. Horn batted in Jones on a double and the Sandites ended the melee with a 14-1 lead. 

McNally hit an RBI single to score Makenna Skaggs in the top of the fourth. Jones scored on an error in the fifth, Hawkins hit an RBI single to score Horn, Skaggs hit an RBI single to score Tanner, and Hawkins scored on an error for the final run of the game.

Horn was a perfect 4-for-4 in the game and Tanner led all scorers with four RBI and three runs. The Sandites out hit their foes 18-5 and benefited from six Pacer errors. Mackenzie Bechtold (7-3, 11-3) got the win for the Sandites with five hits, no walks, and seven strikeouts in five innings.

Enid went through three pitchers in the game. Kimbree Layton got the start and the loss with eleven hits, one strikeouts, and one walk in two innings. Tomieya Stewart took over just before Usher’s grand slam and threw seven hits, two strikeouts, and one walk in two innings. Jada Stovall finished out with no hits, no walks, and two strikeouts in the fifth.

The Teams

Sand Springs has won sixteen Regional titles, including four consecutive trips to State. They have never won a State Title, but made it to the finals in 2015, losing by a single run. They placed second in District 3.

The team holds a .335 batting average, .480 slugging average, .401 on-base percentage, 2.41 earned run average, and 1.28 WHIP. They average 7 runs, 8 hits, 4 walks, 3 strikeouts, 1 sacrifice, 2 steals, 1 error, and 1 double play per game. The pitching crew averages 6 hits, 3 strikeouts, and 1 walk per game.

Enid (5-26) went 0-12 for last place in District 4 and they are riding a three-game losing streak. Their average score this season is a 9-3 loss. The Pacers haven’t had a winning season since 2013 and have never won a State Title. The Sandites won their last five games against the Pacers by run-rule.

Sapulpa (8-17) is Sand Springs’s chief rival in most sports, but hasn’t beaten the Sandites in softball in over a decade. They finished second to last in District 3 with a 2-10 record. They’re peaking at the right time, however, winning three of their last four games. Their average game this season is an 8-5 loss and they have never won a State Title.

Sand Springs - Choctaw Rivalry

Choctaw (15-12) finished third in District 4 and is coming off a win. They failed to qualify for State last season and average a 6-5 win this season.

Sand Springs is 3-2 against the Yellowjackets since then. The Sandites won 4-1 in the 2016 Broken Arrow Tournament, Choctaw won 4-3 at the 2017 UCO Tournament and 4-1 in the 2017 State Quarterfinals, and Sand Springs won 3-2 in the 2018 Broken Arrow Tournament.
