Metro Christian traps Eagles, 35-6

CLAREMORE —

The Claremore Sequoyah Eagles fell 35-6 to the Tulsa Metro Christian Patriots Friday night in District 3A-5 action.
The Eagles (5-4, 3-2) were already in the playoffs though. However, they can no longer win the district or finish runner up.
Sequoyah closes the regular season at Dewey on Friday. The Eagles will finish third in the disrtict with a victory and fourth with a loss.
Sequoyah came out strong in the first quarter and took its only lead when quarterback Daniel Moniz scored on a 2-yard keeper at the 1:02 mark.
The Eagles lined up for a 42 yard field goal attempt 90 seconds prior, but decided to go for it after Metro Christian jumped offside.
Moniz promptly gained 18 yards on fourth and three at the 20 and then punched it in three plays later. 
That was the first touchdown the Patriot defense had allowed since a 14-13 win at Oklahoma Christian in week one.
Metro Christian (9-0, 5-0) took control from there, however, thanks to a 28-point outburst in the second quarter.
Moniz retuned an interception 11 yards to his own 36 yard line with the Eagles trailing 14-6 at the 3:51 mark of the second period.
The Patriots, however, blocked a punt about a minute later that led to one score. Sequoyah then lost a fumble at its own six yard line on the ensuing kickoff and Metro Christian scored again right before halftime.
Benny Sandecki had a 20 yard interception to his own 40 yard line with 5:42 remaining the third quarter. The Patriots, however, got an interception of their own just 39 seconds later.
Moniz finished with 56 yards passing and 28 rushing. Will Shea had a nice night as he caught two balls for a team-high 33 yards, gained 17 yards on six carries, and had several tackles on defense.
