Time runs out on Bulldogs

EDMOND — Edmond Memorial made a mad rush and tallied 20 points in the fourth quarter to come back and make an effort to defeat the Enid Plainsmen Friday night. The only problem was that Enid held a 19-0 advantage at the break, making Memorial run out of time.

After the Bulldog dash for a second straight win concluded, the Plainsmen left Wantland Stadium with a 32-27 victory. Memorial, 1-1, will trek over to Deer Creek next Friday.

Trailing 26-7 with 7:32 left in the fourth, the Bulldogs picked up the pace on offense and began to devour yardage. Standout running back Warren Wand, who carried eight times for zero yards in the opening half, upped his leg momentem in half No. 2 with 98 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Wand made it 26-13 when he powered forward and then tightroped the right sideline for a 15-yard score.

On defense, Memorial’s Jason Hand then picked off an Enid pass at the Plainsmen 44-yard line. On play one, Bulldog quarterback Mick Mayerske held the ball long enough to pull the defenders to him, then released a pass in the left flat that Waylan Anderson roared 44 yards to the house with for just a 26-20 deficit. Anderson caught five balls for 78 yards and had another TD from 10 yards away with just over a minute left to play. But that required Edmond to stop Enid. And, after Memorial used two time-outs, the Plainsmen just took a knee for the 32-27 final.

It was Wand who kept his legs driving late in the third stanza to give Memorial its first score of the night on a 4-yard run.

Enid upped its lead to 19-zip with just over a minute to play in the opening half when quarterback Fred Lawrence stepped right and got into the end zone on a keeper.

The Plainsmen were led by Raheem Mitchell’s 127 rushing yards — 107 of that came in the first half — along with a second-quarter 36-yard touchdown run.

By intermission, Enid had outrushed Memorial, 126-11.

The ‘Dogs stayed in the game early after a 46-yard completion by the Plainsmen turned into a lost fumble near the goal line. Then Bulldog Grant Carro picked off a pass at the Memorial 1-yard line to stop a threatening drive. Carro also batted away a pass in aiding in the Bulldog comeback in the final stanza.

Also on defense, Edmond senior linebacker Jake Mammen recorded a minus-3 tackle on Mitchell and back over on offense, Donovan Nunley caught two passes for 26 yards.
