CLASS 2A SEMIFINALS: Davis shuts out No. 1 Vian, 22-0

MIDWEST CITY — Whether it was a Vian hangover or Davis’ solid defense, the result was not a good one for the Wolverines in the Class 2A semifinals.

Vian had averaged 399.6 yards of total offense per game and had scored 821 points in 13 games coming into this contest. But all of that faded in the shadow of seven turnovers – six interceptions and a lost fumble – in the 22-0 loss to the Wolves  at Rose Field on Friday night.

“We got beat,” Vian coach Brandon Tyler said. “They hit us in the mouth and we never responded.”

It definitely wasn’t the night for Class 2A’s high-flying offenses. Frederick lost 55-32 to Oklahoma Christian in the other semifinal. The Bombers finished the season with 822 points, one more than the Wolverines, and won the far-less significant race as Oklahoma’s highest-scoring team ever, the national record of 891 points over 15 games remaining intact.

Tyler’s squad was coming off a 43-13 win over two-time defending state champion Hennessey last Friday to avenge the loss in last year’s quarterfinals. The coach admitted his team was “a little flat” in the week leading up to the semifinals.

“We had been looking for the Hennessey game for a year,” Tyler said. “(The Wolverines) got what we wanted there. We, as coaches, knew when we met with them on Saturday after the game that it was going to be the biggest thing to get our heads back up.”

Nobody probably felt flatter than Vian quarterback Landon Decker, who had an unhappy birthday Friday night.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound senior was intercepted four times in a 2-of-9, 14-yard evening before leaving the game in the fourth quarter.

Vian assistant coaches said after the game that he had a concussion. He was not making any comments when approached in the locker room, but was seen after the game crying on shoulders of coaches and family.
