Dewey holds off Verdigris, 39-34

VERDIGRIS —

It took a while for the Dewey Bulldoggers’ offense to click, but they found a way to overcome a 20-point deficit to defeat the Verdigris Cardinals 39-34 Friday night in District 3A-5 play.
Verdigris (1-8, 1-4) led 26-6 at halftime before Dewey rallied for five second half touchdowns.
Dewey (5-4, 3-2) was led by Jared Fink, who rushed for 64 yards, including the deciding 25-yard touchdown with 2:10 left in the game. The Bulldoggers’ special teams and defense came out firing in the second half and closed the game with two fumbles and two touchdowns.
“This win feels great for a coach. It shows the character of this football team,” Dewey head coach Chris Revard said. “Obviously we didn’t play the way we are supposed to play in the first half. We made a lot of mistakes in the first half and uncharacteristic mistakes. “Give Verdigris credit, they came out to play. The ball fell their way in the first half and it fell our way in the second half and our kids knew we had to win this game to get into the playoffs. Our guys came out in the second half and I told them to forget the first half and go out and play our football and that’s what happened.”
Verdigris’ first score came on their second possession with a 1-yard run by Austin Senephimmachack with 9:18 in the first quarter as they took a 6-0, with a failed PAT.
The Cardinals extended their lead 26-6 on the back of Senephimmachack, whom scored three times in the second quarter with runs of 26, 40 and 12 yards.
 
 
 
Dewey wasted no time erasing the 20-point deficit as they recovered the kickoff and scored a touchdown five plays later to make the score 26-20, after a 2-point conversion.
 
 
 
On Verdigris’ very next drive, Dewey’s Fink knocked the ball out on the Cardinals’ 16-yard line to tie the game up 26-26.

  • 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.
