Sequoyah holds off Inola, 14-11

INOLA — Inola tried to befuddle with its no huddle while Sequoyah’s running back platoon proved to be a boon, leading the Eagles to a 14-11 victory over the Longhorns in Class 3A homecoming football Friday night at Longhorn Field.

Michael Chambers ran for 99 yards on 15 carries while Will Shea added 52 yards and Ryan Henson scored the winning touchdown, propelling Sequoyah to its second victory in three games. Inola fell to 1-2.

Doug Radley, a 5-foot-7 wide receiver/defensive back, scored the Eagles’ first touchdown on the final play of the first half, then returned an interception 15 yards to set up the second TD.

Following a half the distance face mask penalty to the Longhorns‘ 12, Henson carried three straight times, scoring from the five with 8:45 remaining. Chance Schultz kicked Sequoyah up 14-3 with his second point after conversion.

The touchdown seemed to arouse Inola’s struggling offense. Quarterback Mason Stookey, who completed 13-of-23 passes for 121 yards, found Chase Phillips on a 44-yard strike to the Eagle 34. The Longhorns were eventually forced to punt and then held Sequoyah at its 14.

On fourth down, kicker Sam Lederman saw the snap sail over his head out of the end zone for a safety, cutting his team’s lead to 14-5 with 3:29 to go. Inola took the Eagles’ free kick and covered 53 yards in seven plays to come within 14-11. Stookey passed the final three yards to Phillips, but the extra point kick was blocked with 35 seconds left.

Sequoyah then recovered Inola’s onside kick to seal the victory.

The Eagles scored first with no time remaining on the clock in the first half. Stookey had his punt blocked at midfield and the visitors needed three plays to score.

Quarterback Benny Sandecki stroked a 30-yard pass to Radley at the flag and he wrestled the ball away from an Inola defender for the six points.

The Longhorns cut their deficit to 7-3 after Josh Barrett recovered an Eagle fumble at the Sequoyah 41 in the third quarter. The drive stalled and Phillips entered to toe a 37-yard field goal at the 7:20 mark.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
