DEL CITY — Oklahoma Christian led 11-0 at intermission but 20 straight points by Christian Heritage in the second half enabled the Crusaders to pull out a 20-11 win Friday night in Del City.

The defending state champion Saints did all of their scoring in less than a two-minute span in the opening quarter.

Jack Markmiller kicked home a 25-yard field goal with 4:07 left and then at the 2:31 mark, OCS quarterback Will McKinnis found Connor Sikes open for a 41-yard touchdown pass-and-catch.

But in the latter half, Christian Heritage quarterback Colton Lindsey fired a bomb of 97 yards for a score and ran one himself for 31 yards to be enough damage to do in the Saints, who will play host to Northeast next Friday. Lindsey passed for 166 yards and also broke the century mark in the rushing department, picking up 101 and the TD.

Luke Frankfurt led Oklahoma Christian with 93 yards rushing and teammate Corbin Metz hauled in six passes for 114 yards ensued by Sikes (5-72) and Kade VanMeter (5-54). On defense, VanMeter again came away with an interception.

McKinnis threw for 261 yards through the air on 23-of-47 attempts but CHA had four picks.
