Eagles soar into 3A state quarterfinals

SEQUOYAH — Apparently, the Roland Rangers had never seen anything like Claremore Sequoyah quarterback Daniel Moniz. The Rangers could not tackle the 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior and also failed to curtail his passing arm.



Moniz attacked by land and air and landed the Eagles in the Class 3A playoff quarterfinals with a 49-25 victory over Roland Friday night at Eagle Field. Moniz galloped for 208 yards with three touchdowns and completed 11 of 14 passes for two more scores.



Defensively, Sequoyah limited the Rangers to six rushing yards while piling up 474 offensive yards. The Eagles overcame 126 penalty yards by scoring on all but two possessions, one ending due to an interception and the other on downs in the game’s final minute.



Moniz set the tone by zipping 49 yards to Roland’s 28 on the second play of the game. Five players later, he scored from the five and junior Chance Schultz added the first of his seven conversion kicks.



The Rangers did tie the game 7-7, but Moniz tossed the Eagles ahead forever on their next series, hitting Hunter Webster over the middle for a 70-yard touchdown. Roland sliced Sequoyah’s lead to 14-13 when quarterback Brooks Robertson located Madison Bunch on a 51-yard scoring play.



The Eagles immediately retaliated when Moniz capped a 55-yard drive with a two-yard sneak. 0n the home team’s next possession, Moniz fired 28 yards to Blake Muns for the TD that put Sequoyah ahead 28-13. Roland scored on the final play of the half to make it 28-19.



The Eagles quickly broke it open the first time they touched the ball in the second half. Webster scored his second touchdown on a five-yard run and the home team was home free with a 35-19 cushion. The onslaught continued when Moniz made it 42-25 on an 11-yard TD keeper on the third play of the final quarter, then added a five-yard score through he heart of Roland’s defense with 7:28 remaining.



Sequoyah stays at home on Friday night to face Jones following its second round victory over Oklahoma City Heritage Hall.
