Sequoyah topples Victory Christian, 31-14

TULSA — Claremore Sequoyah came from behind to defeat No. 4 Victory Christian, 31-14 in the first round of the Class 3A football playoffs Friday night at Victory Stadium.

The Eagles (6-5) will host Roland, a 27-26 winner over Tulsa Lincoln Christian, in a second round contest on Friday.

“That’s great to get a home playoff game,” said Sequoyah head coach Jody Iams. “That doesn’t happen unless the kids believe.”

The Eagles trailed 14-10 after three quarters but dominated the final quarter.  They went ahead for good just 42 seconds into the frame when Daniel Moniz threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to McKaine Foster.

“That play all started with good blocking up front,” said Foster. “Everyone is doing there job right now. We are just trying to continue to get better each week.”

Hunter Webster then extended the advantage to 24-14 on a 38-yard scoring run with 4:01 left. Webster had a huge sack on a fourth down play about two minutes earlier.

Moniz then got the final score on a 31-yard touchdown run 57 seconds later. He also had a key interception in his own end zone on another fourth down play to turn back the Conquerors (10-1) with 9:53 remaining.

“I am so proud of the way the kids continue to fight,” said Iams. “You can see them coming together and it’s an awesome feeling. I can’t ask for anything more.”

Sequoyah drew first blood with 5:09 left in the first quarter thanks to a little bit of luck. Moniz fumbled into the end zone but Will Shea alertly fell on the ball.

 Victory Christian tied the game at 7-7 late in the first quarter.  The Conquerors had a chance to take the lead but the Eagle defense used a goal line stand to keep things even at the 5:34 mark of the second quarter.

Sequoyah went ahead 10-7 when Chance Schultz made a 30 yard field goal with eight seconds remaining in the first half.   Webster’s 32 yard interception return to the Victory 26 yard line set up that score.

The Conquerors took their only lead at the 9:21 mark of the third quarter.  From that point on, however, it was all Eagles.

  • 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.
