Saints turn back Crusaders

EDMOND — The Oklahoma Christian School Saints got in a 7-0 hole after the first quarter against rival Christian Heritage Academy Thursday night, but dug themselves out in a hurry with two touchdowns in both the second and third quarters and brought in the 35-14 win to move to 7-1 on the year.

CHA visited OCS looking for revenge for two losses to the Saints during last season’s campaign. The Saints benefited from a blocked punt in the last minute for their regular season victory and had a convincing win in the playoffs.

On the Saints’ first possession they failed on a fake punt, giving CHA the ball at midfield. The Crusaders later scored on a five-yard run by quarterback Colten Lindsay. OCS came back with a 23-yard touchdown from Austin Brooks to Blake Barnes.

Brooks and Barnes hooked up again on a 14-yard pass to paydirt. The Saints went for two from a split formation with Will McKinnis passing to Cole Peak to take a 14-7 lead.

An out of bounds kickoff gave CHA good field position with under two minutes remaining in the half. The Crusaders used 10 plays to score with only 6 seconds left, tying the contest at 14-14.

The Saints started the second half with a 50-yard kickoff return by Barnes followed by a touchdown catch by Barnes from Brooks. Solid defense by the Saints shut out CHA the rest of the game and allowed OCS to control field position with a tough inside running game. Garrett Kilborn scored on a 34-yard pass play and Luke Frankfurt ran one in for 25 of his 106 yards rushing to close out the scoring.

Brooks was 13-for-16 for 173 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

Barnes was Brooks’ No. 1 target, as he caught six balls for 88 yards and the three touchdowns.  Kilborn brought in the one touchdown catch and 45 yards.

The Saints put up 430 yards of offense while holding the Crusaders to only 200.

The victory leaves OCS atop District 2A-2 with two games remaining. The Saints travel to Northeast on Friday followed by a trip to Luther.

    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.
