Logan Hattaway was an unstoppable offensive machine Friday night.
The sophomore running back notched a games worth of touchdowns in the first quarter alone, scoring four times overall to lead Sequoyah to a 49-6 victory at Nowata.
The Eagles (7-1, 5-0 District 2A-8) tallied all their points in only two quarters, scoring 28 in the first and 21 in the third.
Hattaway scored on runs of 4 and 3 yards in the opening frame while also catching a 26-yard touchdown pass from Brett Burks. He capped his scoring spree with a 7-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
Hattaway finished with 119 yards rushing on 13 carries. The touchdown pass from Burks was his only reception.
Quarterback Blake Bedsworth had himself a game as well, logging 155 yards rushing on eight carries. Nearly half of those came on a 70-yard touchdown scamper in the third quarter that increased the Sequoyah lead to 42-0.
Bedsworth also completed 2 of 4 passes for 18 yards.
Josh Harwell and Dylan Piguet found the end zone on the ground as well, scoring on runs of 13 and 25 yards, respectively.
In all, the Eagles rushed for 376 yards and outgained Nowata 420-74 despite committing four turnovers on three lost fumbles and an interception.
The defense mitigated those giveaways, holding the Ironmen to only 1.5 yards per play, including 3 yards rushing. As a result, Nowata failed to convert a third down, finishing 0-of-10 on plays of that variety and 0-of-2 on fourth downs.
Moreover, Hunter Bolay snagged an interception to further Sequoyah’s defensive prowess.
The Eagles battle Class 2A No. 7 Adair (8-1, 6-0) for district supremacy Friday night at the Pope Athletic Complex. The Warriors also enter the contest on a seven-game winning streak, with their last and only loss coming on Sept. 4 in a 45-6 decision against Class 3A No. 4 Stigler.
