Defense sparks Bacone to 34-0 victory

MUSKOGEE — The 34-0 count on the Indian Bowl scoreboard when Bacone walked off the field Saturday didn’t give enough credit to where credit was due.

It was definitely a day for the Warriors’ defense, which forced seven Southwestern Assemblies of God turnovers. In doing so, it extended a scoreless quarter streak to nine, dating back to the fourth quarter against Haskell Indian Nations University two weeks ago and handed SAGU its first shutout loss since 2006.

Bacone defeated Cole College 42-0 at Indian Bowl a week ago.

It was the third consecutive win for the Warriors, now 4-3 on the season.

The takeaways amounted to a mere field goal until the Bacone offense, inconsistent at times, clicked for a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns. Isaac Twenty’s second interception of the day set up a picture perfect aerial from Kyle Kuban to Sheriff Thomas, all 47 yards of it in the air as Thomas beat coverage in the back of the end zone in full stride with 5:43 to play.

Warriors’ defender Jormeh Mowarin forced a fumble by SAGU quarterback Reid Golson with 5:28 to play and Jeremy Sims recovered at the Lions 33. Brandon Bethel turned it into a 10-yard touchdown run with 1:56 left for the game’s final points.

Golson’s scrambling was the only offensive threat for SAGU (1-4). He rushed 28 times for 137 yards, but also fumbled the football away three times and was intercepted three times.The Lions finished with 196 total yards.

“We watched their four games on film and he does that to everybody,” Bacone coach Trevor Rubly said. “The main thing was he had nowhere to throw to. Our pass coverage was real good and that in turn gave the guys up front more time to get after him.”

And they did, registering five sacks and 11 tackles for loss. Three of defensive end Paul Mpagi’s tackles were for losses, including a sack. From the secondary, Bacone’s Chase Rettig recovered a fumble that led to a 19-yard field goal with 5:25 left in the half, one of two on the day by Jamie Moore.
