LAWTON - South O'Brien had an early touchdown nullified by a holding penalty and never recovered, falling 46-13 to a good Lawton-Bronson team here on Oct. 3.
The visiting Wolverines scored on six plays after the Eagles fumbled on their first play from scrimmage deep in their own territory. The holding penalty waived off that TD and the potent Eagles took over from there.
SOS scored both of its TDs in the fourth quarter, the first on a three-yard run by Mike Faust, and the second on a 28-yard fake punt catch from Ryan Brasser to Jarod Syndergaard.
L-B scored on a 56-yard run by Dakota Miller, a 43-yard run by Levi Kelleher, a 28-yard pass interception return by Kelleher, TD runs of one and 14 yards by Michael Polkamp, an eight-yard run by Clayton King, and a 31-yard King to Connor McNaughton pass play.
Taylor Schroeder led the Wolverines on offense with niine carries for 62 yards, and Faust tallied 46 yards on 13 carries. SOS quarterback Chas Biery was 8-20 passing for 65 yards.
Tanner Mathews led South O'Brien on defense with 12 tackles, while Syndergaard and Pete Mathews had 10 apiece, followed by Cody Rehder eight, and Schroeder, Knute Klinker, and Dane Christensen with four each. Rehder also had a fumble recovery, and Tanner Mathews recorded two sacks.
"We had two opportunities to score early in the game, but just didn't get the job done," said SOS coach Mark Fuhrman. "They have several good-sized kids up front and a pretty good running back to go wth them. We just didn't match up well.
"In the second half, our receivers started going after the ball in the air and we completed quite a few passes."
