Bouse’s 220 rushing yards powers Beggs past Sequoyah

BEGGS — Two super-quick runners are better than one. Sequoyah found out the hard way against Beggs in the first round of the Class 3A state playoffs Friday night at Golden Demon Stadium.

Junior Lane Bouse romped for 220 yards on 27 carries while junior teammate Kerry Daniels chipped in 116 on 29 attempts, powering Beggs to a 34-20 victory and into a second round bout with Checotah. Senior quarterback Daniel Moniz countered for the Eagles with 247 yards on 30 totes, but it wasn‘t enough to prevent Sequoyah from ending the season 6-5.

Bouse and Daniels combined for five touchdowns on a night when a wind gusting to 15 miles per hour exacerbated a chilly temperature of 55 degrees. Each time the 9-2 Demons scored, the Eagles rallied, but a pair of turnovers in the final period doomed coach Jody Iams’ team.

Beggs finished with 431 yards of offense compared to 319 for Sequoyah , but 10 penalties for 102 yards helped curtail the Demons’ attack. The home scored on the first play of the game when Bouse darted 80 yards down the sideline. Try as they might, the Eagles could never pull even.

Down 34-20, Sequoyah appeared set to come within a touchdown when Moniz dived over the goal line with 8:49 remaining. But the fleet-footed runner fumbled the ball and Beggs recovered for a touchback. On their next possession, the Eagles were attempting to launch a drive when Moniz’s pass was intercepted by DoLee Wolf and returned to the Sequoyah 30 with 4:26 left. The Eagles’ fate was sealed.

After Bouse scored from the three to make it 14-0 in the first period, Sequoyah got untracked when Moniz rolled left and located a wide open Will Shea for a 35-yard touchdown. Then the yo-yo effect began.

Beggs pedaled 80 yards in 14 plays to make it 20-6 when quarterback Tyler Marr tossed 18 yards to Daniels for the TD. The Eagles needed just five plays to retaliate, getting the score on Moniz’s one-yard sneak just 47 seconds deep into the second quarter.

The Demons regained the momentum with a 90-yard, 20-play series in the third period. Beggs converted six straight third down situations and scored on Daniels’ nine-yard punch up the middle. Down 27-13, Sequoyah refused to wilt and followed the slicing runs of Moniz into the end zone. Moniz picked up 57 yards on five carries in a series that was capped by his 20-yard touchdown.

Bouse then took charge again for Beggs, scoring the final TD on a 28-yard run with 10:28 left in the game. Sequoyah’s miscues scissored any chance at one more rally.

  • 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.
