Wolves blow out PC West

EDMOND — The Edmond Santa Fe Wolves scored 28 points in the first quarter en route to their 55-7 victory over the Putnam City West Patriots Friday in Oklahoma City.

Santa Fe’s offense and defense clicked on all cylinders in the first 24 minutes. They scored 41 points and held the Patriots to eight total yards before the two teams hit the locker rooms for halftime.  

The Wolves offense put the first points on the board in the first two minutes. Quarterback Justice Hansen completed a 21-yard touchdown pass to Dale Jefferson to cap off an opening 60-yard drive that gave Santa Fe a 7-0 lead in the first two minutes.

The Wolves defense got in on the action early as well. Defensive back Eric Davis picked off Steven Stallings’ first pass of the game and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 lead.

Santa Fe’s defense held the Patriots to a three-and-out on their following drive before Justice Hansen scored on a 40-yard run to give the Wolves a 21-0 lead with just under eight minutes remaining in the first quarter.

The Wolves’ defense answered their offensive counterparts with their second score after Phillip Sumpter recovered a PC West fumble and returned it 23 yards for a score on PC West’s second play of their third drive.

Cameron Westbrook kept the momentum in Santa Fe’s favor in the second quarter. After the Wolves and Patriots exchanged drives, Westbrook busted off a 64-yard touchdown run with 7:36 left in the first half giving Santa Fe a 35-0 lead. Westbrook finished the first half with 94 yards.

Defensive back Khari Harding picked off another Stallings pass before Westbrook put the ball in the end zone for the second time. Westbrook scored from 17 yards out on their following drive and extended the Santa Fe lead to 41-0 before halftime.

With the game in hand, Santa Fe sent the reserves to the field for the second half. The Wolves held PC West to seven points in the second half and score two more times to clinch the game 55-7.

“I didn’t think we executed within our offense last week,” Santa Fe head coach Lance Manning said after the game. “We had a lot of misreads and sloppy play. Those are the things we really wanted to clean up and we did that tonight for the most part. I thought we played a solid game.”

Hansen and Westbrook combined for more than 200 yards rushing before heading to the bench in the third quarter. Westbrook scored three times on the ground, Hansen scored once on the ground and once through the air.

The Wolves are 5-1 and 3-0 in conference after their victory over the Patriots and will travel to Lawton next week to take on the Lawton Wolverines. Santa Fe returns home to host the Edmond Memorial Bulldogs on Oct. 26 at Wantland Stadium in Edmond.

    William Kropp, a 24-year-old rookie from Edmond, managed to hold off local favorite Ángel Cabrera to win the 83rd Abierto OSDE del Centro presented by FiberCorp Sunday.
    His victory at the Cordoba Golf Club, in Cabrera’s hometown of Villa Allende, was his first in just five career starts on the NEC Series-PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.
    “My plan for the first half of the Tour season was to get adjusted to traveling across the region and playing new courses,” said Kropp, who had finished in a tie for third only three weeks ago in Guatemala. “It’s really a great bonus to win a tournament as important as this one early in the year.”
    Kropp finished at 8-under par 276, one shot ahead of the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters champion. Cabrera was trying to win the tournament for the ninth time in his career and he was also seeking to become the first three-time champion on PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.

    The Masters lumbered on last week without two of pro golf's biggest names, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, and fans changed the channel. The PGA needs someone with star power if it's going to lure people back to the game.
