CPHS Football: 2018 Sandite Season Rewind

IMG_4061.JPG

The Charles Page High School varsity football team ended their season Friday with a 48-21 rout at No. 5 Booker T. Washington. Though their 3-7 record is their worst since 2011, and they snapped a six-year playoff streak, the team arguably wasn’t any worse than they have been in recent successful years.

The talent was there. The defense was killer, the O-line was stout, the special teams impressed on both returns and return coverage. The receiving unit was indisputably better than last season and senior quarterback Caden Pennington developed into a remarkable double-threat with fourteen touchdowns by air and thirteen on the ground.

Somehow, things just didn’t shake out.

More important than the scores and the records was the demonstration of just what exactly a Sandite is. When Head Coach Dustin Kinard was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the entire community has rallied and is still rallying in support.

The second-longest tenured coach in Sand Springs history, Kinard has led the Sandites to a 63-67 record in twelve seasons with seven playoff appearances, three semifinal appearances, and one State Finals appearance.

The Sandites have held a prayer rally and numerous fundraisers to show their appreciation for his leadership. Colton’s Steak House and Rib Crib both made large donations, as did the Church That Matters Tailgate Team and the Sand Springs Rotary Club.

8/31/2018 Mansfield Summit 41 Sand Springs 28

The Sandites lost their season-opener to Mansfield Summit High School (5-4) in a Border Brawl match-up that pitted five Frontier Valley Conference teams against five Mansfield schools. They will travel to Texas next year.

While three of the Sandites’ losses were blown leads, this one was a Jaguar rout with a solid comeback attempt by the Oklahomans. A Texas State-committed quarterback led the Texans to a 34-7 first half advantage and 41-14 lead before the Sandites rallied with a 21-7 second half.

Game Leaders: Caden Pennington 14-20-196-0, 2TD passing. Jacob Snodgrass 7-109, 2TD receiving. Joel Mackey 15-97, 2TD rushing. Jaden Weiser 4/4 PAT. Mackey 2-59 kick return. Hayden Cramer 14 tackles, Brooks Dudley 1 interception.

9/6/2018 Sand Springs 45-24 Putnam City

The season looked promising when the Sandites routed Putnam City (0-10), but the win was watered down when the Pirates failed to win a game all season. Sand Springs led by as much as 35 points before sending in the backups.

Game Leaders: Pennington 9-15-169-0, 3TD passing. Daren Hawkins 3-43, 2TD receiving. Mackey 13-150, 1TD rushing. Weiser 5/6 PAT. McCallie 1-17 kick return. Cramer 8 tackles, 1 forced fumble. Brycen Peterman 3 tackles for loss, 1 fumble recovery.

9/14/2018 Greenwood 49 Sand Springs 13

The Sandites continued their recent tradition of scheduling an out-of-state powerhouse, traveling to the defending 6A State Champs from Greenwood, Arkansas (9-1). The Bulldogs took a 42-0 lead before sending in the backups.

Game Leaders: Pennington 15-95, 1TD rushing. Cramer 8 tackles.

9/21/2018 Shawnee 23, Sand Springs 20, OT

The loss to Greenwood was expected, the loss to Mansfield was unfortunate, but the Sandites didn’t really start hurting till their loss to Shawnee (2-8). Sand Springs was the better team than Shawnee this season, indisputably. Better offense, better defense, tougher schedule.

Mackey started hot with an eighty-yard TD run on the first play of the game, but things went downhill from there. A constant drizzle severely hindered Pennington’s pass game. The Sandites gave up a fumble that resulted in a touchdown, a red zone turnover on downs, and a fruitless red zone penetration that ended with the half. Both of their first half PATs failed.

The Sandites had their third failed red zone penetration late in the fourth quarter with an interception. In overtime Pennington had a wide open lane on fourth down, but slipped on the waterlogged turf to seal their fate. A Shawnee field goal secured the upset.

Game Leaders: Mackey 30-251, 1TD rushing. Cramer 13 tackles. Kaden Glass 1 fumble recovery.

9/28/2018 Muskogee 45 Sand Springs 27

Another blown lead for the Sandites, leading 27-24 to start the fourth quarter, and suffering a 21-0 fourth quarter shutout.

Game Leaders: Hawkins 1-60, 1TD receiving. Mackey 15-100, 1TD rushing. Weiser 3/3 PAT. Cramer 19 tackles.

10/5/2018 Bartlesville 29 Sand Springs 27

For the third-straight week, a blown fourth quarter lead. Up 20-16 to start the final stanza, and 27-23 with only 3:29 left, the Sandites gave up an eleven-play 88-yard touchdown drive. Pennington got the Sandites to midfield with five seconds left, but threw an interception to seal the upset.

Game Leaders: Pennington 6-13-138-1, 3TD passing. Hawkins 4-90, 2TD receiving. Pennington 13-95 rushing. Weiser 3/3 PAT. Snodgrass 3-43 kick return. Cramer 12 tackles, 1 sack. Luke Bratcher 10 tackles, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble.

10/12/2018 Sand Springs 35 Ponca City 14

The Sandites secured their first district win when they hosted Ponca City (0-10). The game could easily have been a 35-0 shutout but defensive indifference took hold and the Wildcats scored with 21 seconds left in the half and 13 seconds left in the game.

Game Leaders: Pennington 14-22-165-1, 2TD passing. Snodgrass 5-51, 1TD receiving. Pennington 8-64, 2TD rushing. Weiser 5/5 PAT. Cramer 9 tackles, 3 for loss.

10/18/2018 Bixby 35 Sand Springs 0

The loss to Bixby was expected. The Spartans (9-1) own the best defense in 6A-II and notched three shutouts this season, including the third highest-scoring offense in the state from Sapulpa.

Game Leaders: Colton Roberts 3-64 receiving. Justis Myers 5 tackles, 1 sack. Jerret Haley 4 tackles, 3 breakups. Mackey blocked kick.

10/26/2018 Sand Springs 48 Sapulpa 34

Pennington played the game of his life for an upset of the Sandites arch-rivals from Sapulpa (7-3) with seven touchdowns. His six rushing scores were the second-most scored in a single game in school history.

This game showed the Sandites’ true potential, and the “what could have been” for the season. Sapulpa beat Bartlesville and Shawnee, and Sand Springs easily handled their Highway 97 counterparts.

Game Leaders: Pennington 8-9-123-0, 1TD. Hawkins 5-77 receiving. Pennington 28-212, 6TD rushing. Weiser 6/6 PAT. Cramer 8 tackles. Cameron Smith fumble recovery.

11/2/2018 Booker T. Washington 48 Sand Springs 21

Spurred on by their prior week’s success, the Sandites made a valiant effort against the defending State Champions (7-3) but couldn’t overcome an 0-20 start.

Game Leaders: Pennington 8-13-89-0, 2TD passing. Hawkins 7-78, 1TD receiving. Pennington 22-68, 1TD rushing. Weiser 3/3 PAT. Aaron King 5-94 kick return. Cramer 16 tackles, 3 for loss.

The Class 6A-II No. 10 ranked Charles Page High School football team (3-7, 2-5) gave the defending State Champions a run for their money, but ultimately couldn’t overcome an early deficit Friday night at SE Williams Stadium.

No. 5 ranked Booker T. Washington (7-3, 6-1) topped the Sandites 48-21 on a brisk Hornet Senior Night to finish second in district play and end the Sandites’ season.

The Hornets scored on six of nine drives and punted three times, averaging five plays for 34 yards per possession. The Sandites averaged five plays and 21 yards per possession, fumbling twice, scoring thrice, punting four times, and giving up one turnover on downs.

Senior quarterback Caden Pennington was 8-13-89-0 passing with touchdown passes to Daren Hawkins and Luke Bratcher. Hawkins caught seven passes for 78 yards and Bratcher caught one pass for eleven yards and his first score of the season.

Pennington carried 22 times for 68 yards and a twenty-yard touchdown, while senior running back Joel Mackey had twelve touches for sixty yards. Jaden Weiser was a perfect three-for-three on extra points, Hayden Cramer tallied sixteen tackles, and Aaron King averaged nineteen yards on five kick returns.

Though the 48-21 score looks lopsided from the outside, the Sandites actually kept pace with the Hornets for the middle half of the game. Unfortunately the 21-21 tie was sandwiched between a 0-20 start and 0-7 finish.

Thomas Grayson scored on the Hornets’ opening drive with a 32-yard fourth-down run for a 7-0 first quarter shutout. Freshman quarterback Gentry Williams scored on a nine-yard keeper on the first play of the second quarter, then Kiero Petross returned a Pennington fumble 25 yards for the 20-0 lead. Drew Wilkie kicked the first two extra points, but Cramer prevented a two-point run on the third score.

Pennington got the Sandites on the board with a thirteen-yard strike to Hawkins, capping a four-play forty-yard drive with four minutes left in the half. The home team used their longest drive of the game to drain the clock, marching 68 yards in ten plays for a 27-7 halftime lead, scoring on a sixteen-yard pass from Williams to Gentry Dalton.

The Sandites forced a punt on the opening drive of the second half, then scored on an eleven-yard pass to Bratcher to cut it to 27-14.

Williams responded with an eighteen-yard touchdown run and a 35-yard touchdown pass to Daxton Hill to make it 41-14.

Pennington added the Sandites’ final points of the night on a twenty-yard run with 6:58 to play.

Senior backup Dwight Hamilton took over for the Hornets and capped his senior night perfectly with a fifty-yard strike to Javian Hester. Wilkie kicked the final point to complete the rout.

The Sandites finished with their first regular-season losing record since going 3-7 in 2011 and snapped a six-year playoff streak. Booker T. Washington is headed to the playoffs for the seventh straight year and will host No. 4 Del City (7-3) Friday at 7:30 p.m.

CPHS Football Halftime Report: Sandite trail defending State Champs 27-7

IMG_0050.jpg

The Charles Page High School football team is down 27-7 at halftime against the defending State Champions from Booker T. Washington.

The first quarter was heavy defense with four punts and only one first down.

Thomas Grayson was first on the scoreboard with a 32-yard fourth-down run for the Hornets, while Sand Springs punted all three of their possession.

Washington put together a six-play sixty-yard drive and freshman quarterback Gentry Williams scored with a nine-yard run on the first play of the second period.

The Hornet defense showed off once again as Kiero Petross recovered a Caden Pennington fumble and took it 25 yards for a touchdown. Drew Wilkie made his first two point-after kicks, but the Hornets attempted a two-point run this time and Hayden Cramer blew it up.

Trailing 20-0, the Sandites put together their first effective drive, picking up two first downs and traveling 32 yards before two fouls and a negative run forced them to punt on fourth-and-nineteen.

The Sandite defense came up strong once again, forcing their second three-and-out of the night, and this time the offense got hot as well. Pennington hit Daren Hawkins for ten, ran it seventeen, then hit Hawkins for thirteen in a four-play forty-yard march to avert the first half shutout. Jaden Weiser’s point after kick made it 20-7.

Washington responded handily with a ten-play 68-yard drive and sixteen-yard touchdown pass from Williams to Gentry Dalton. Wilkie kicked the final point of the half.

Class 6A-II No. 10 ranked Charles Page High School (3-6, 2-4) travels to No. 5 Booker T. Washington (6-3, 5-1) to wrap up the regular season, but despite their losing record, their season might not end there.

This will be the Sandites’ first losing season since 2011, but thanks to circular losses, there’s still a slim chance that they could extend their six-year playoff run with a little help from Ponca City. Technically they could also finish with a winning record if they win out for the gold ball. Stranger things have happened.

Bixby, Booker T., and Muskogee have the top three spots on lock, but the bottom berth is still open for discussion. Sapulpa will more than likely win it, but with two key upsets the Sandites could sneak past them.

First, Sand Springs has to beat Booker T. Second, Ponca City has to knock off Sapulpa. Neither is likely, and the latter is far less likely than the former, but neither is impossible.

Sapulpa owns the No. 5 offense and the Wildcats are tenth in defense. Sapulpa has the No. 9 defense against Ponca’s No. 13 offense. Far from an even matchup.

In the long shot chance that Ponca City upsets Sapulpa, it’ll drop the Chieftains to 3-4 in district play. If Sand Springs beats Booker T., they’ll improve to 3-4. Bartlesville and Shawnee will play each other in Week Ten, and the winner will improve to 3-4, creating a three-way tie for the playoff berth.

Sapulpa beat both Bartlesville and Shawnee. Sand Springs beat Sapulpa but lost to Bartlesville and Shawnee. The head-to-head record will be 1-1 for all three teams, leaving the tie-breaker to district points. That’s where Sand Springs has the edge. Bartlesville could only finish with -19 at most. Shawnee could only finish with -33 at most. If Sapulpa loses by only a single point they’ll have -24. If Sand Springs wins by only a single point they’ll have -3 to clench the playoff berth.

The Sandites won’t have any say on what goes down in Sapulpa, but they can do their part by upsetting the defending State Champions at 7:00 p.m. in Tulsa.

Last Week

Sand Springs put together four quarters of good football for the third time this season thanks to a dominant performance from the offensive line, propelling Caden Pennington to a career-best performance. Pennington was 8-9-123-0 by air for one touchdown and 28-212 on the ground for six scores.

The Sandites amassed 474 yards, 351 on the ground, in their highest-scoring performance of the season. The defense surrendered 303 yards to the No. 5 offense in 6A-II, forcing three punts and one turnover on downs to hold the Chieftains to their season average.

Booker T. Washington had a lackluster performance against a winless Ponca City, suffering a 7-0 first half shutout before rallying with 27 unanswered points in the second half. Defensively they gave up only 91 yards on four receptions and 50 yards on 38 carries.

This Season

The Sandites have had a tough year with three come-from-behind losses. They have no problem scoring and no problem getting stops, but both sides of the ball have a hard time finishing. They led Muskogee to start the fourth quarter, led Bartlesville till the final five seconds, and lost to Shawnee in overtime. Despite the rough start, they have been heavy competitors in the majority of their games and their hard work paid off with a Week Nine Senior Night rivalry upset. They could just as easily be 6-3, 5-1 right now.

The Hornets got off to a rough start and didn’t improve to a winning record till Week Seven, though only one of their losses came at the hands of an Oklahoma team. A major second-half team, they average only two points in the first quarter, ten in the first half, and 22 in the second half. They’ve suffered seven first-quarter shutouts and came back to win four of those. They suffered four first-half shutouts and came back to win one of those.

The Class 6A No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (3-6, 2-4) pulled off a huge 48-34 upset of No. 7 Sapulpa (6-3, 3-3) Friday at Memorial Stadium. The game doubled as the Sandites’ biggest rivalry, and their Senior Night. It was the fifth-straight victory for Sand Springs in the Highway 97 Rivalry.

The Sandites jumped out to a 20-0 lead with a 13-0 first quarter shutout before letting the  Chieftains back into the game. The bitter foes exchanged punches back-and-forth throughout the game, and the first-quarter was the difference maker in the fourteen-point win.

Senior quarterback Caden Pennington and the stellar Sandite O-Line were the stars of the show as Pennington carried 28 times for 212 yards and six rushing touchdowns. Six rushing touchdowns is the second-most ever scored in a single game by a Sandite, behind only Payton Scott’s seven-score performance in 2017. His 212 yards were a career-best and the second-best performance of the season for any Sandite. He also had a solid 8-9-123-0 passing performance for seven total touchdowns and 335 total yards.

Pennington scored on runs of one yard, three yards, and two yards for the 20-0 lead before Sapulpa got on the board. Jaden Weiser made two point-after kicks but a two-point play failed to convert after a bad hike. Pennington notched a career-best 61-yard run on the third scoring drive.

Cameron Smith recovered a fumbled kick after the second drive, but the Chieftains made their first defensive stop with a pass break-up at the end zone and forced a punt.

Sapulpa’s Marcus Esparza scored on an eighteen-yard run with a kick from Kaivon Mortazavii. The Sandites retaliated with a five-play 72-yard drive, featuring a spectacular 53-yard pass to Daren Hawkins, and three-yard touchdown run from Pennington. Chieftain quarterback Elijah Williams was next in the endzone on a 26-yard run for the final points of the half.

The Sandites kicked off the second half with a twelve-play 71-yard scoring drive and six yard touchdown pass from Pennington to Roberts. Esparza made a seventeen-yard scoring run just four plays later, but Mortazavi missed the extra point to make it 34-20.

The two treams traded three-and-outs, then Pennington scored on a 33-yard run at the start of the fourth quarter. Esparza scored from seven yards out, Pennington scored from one-yard, then Esparza scored again with fourteen seconds to play.

Roberts and Garrett McCallie successfully fielded onside kick attempts on the Chieftains’ last two drives to prevent any comeback attempt.

Daren Hawkins recorded five receptions on the night for 77 yards, Joel Mackey carried fourteen times for 75 yards and Trey Wilkerson had sixteen carries for 67 yards. Aaron King, Jacob Snodgrass, and Justin Roe averaged seventeen-yards per kick return, Cameron Smith averaged 28 yards per punt, and Hayden Cramer led the defense in tackles.

Sand Springs scored seven touchdowns on nine drives with two punts, averaging eight plays and 51 yards per possession. Sapulpa punted three times and gave up one turnover on downs, averaging 38 yards on six plays per possession.

The Sandites will return to action in their season finale Friday at No. 3 Booker T. Washington (6-3, 5-1). Sapulpa will host No. 15 Ponca City (0-9, 0-6). The Hornets defeated the Wildcats 27-7 in Week Nine.

The Class 6A No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (2-6, 1-4) took a 27-14 first half lead in their rivalry game against the No. 7 Sapulpa Chieftains (6-2, 3-2) Friday on Senior Night at Memorial Stadium.

The Sandites jumped out to a 20-0 lead with a 13-0 first quarter shutout before letting the  Chieftains back into the game with a 14-14 second quarter tie.

The visitors tried to get fancy on their opening drive with a punt fake, but the Sandite defense broke up the pass play for a turnover on downs and a scoring drive. Senior quarterback Caden Pennington hit Luke Bratcher for a 27-yard pass, then ran for eighteen yards on the next play before punching it in from one-yard out. Jaden Weiser kicked the extra point for a 7-0 lead.

The stellar Sandite defense forced a quick three-and-out and the offense put together a thirteen-play 59-yard drive capped by a three-yard Pennington run. This time the point-after fell apart due to a bad snap.

Cameron Smith recovered a fumbled kick on the next play, but the Chieftains made their first defensive stop with a pass break-up at the end zone and forced a punt.

Sapulpa punted it away soon after and Pennington stole the show again, setting up a first-and-goal after a career-long 61-yard run, then scored from two yards out soon after. Weiser capped the 20-0 run with 6:25 in the half.

Then Sapulpa came alive.

Marcus Esparza scored on an eighteen-yard run after a six-play 62-yard drive to get the visitors on the board. The Sandites retaliated with a five-play 72-yard drive, featuring a spectacular 53-yard pass to Daren Hawkins, and three-yard touchdown run from Pennington.

Chieftain quarterback Elijah Williams was next in the endzone on a 26-yard run for the final points of the half.

The Sandites are riding a four-year win streak against their Highway 97 rivals. For many in the two towns, a win over their biggest competitors is valued every bit as much as a winning record or playoff appearance.

Last Week

The Sandites suffered their first shutout in a year, and first-ever shutout at the hands of the Bixby Spartans. The district front-runners dominated the first half 28-0 before the Sandite defense held them to a single score in the second half.

Caden Pennington, who had only thrown three interceptions heading into the matchup, doubled that number in a turnover-plagued battle. He was 5-14-84-3 by air, with Colton Roberts catching three of those for 64 yards. Trey Wilkerson led the ground effort with thirteen carries for 64 yards, followed by Pennington with seventeen carries for 35 yards. Pennington actually grossed 71 yards, but was sacked four times for heavy losses.

Cameron Smith had his busiest night of the season with five punts for an average of 33 yards. Jacob Snodgrass averaged fourteen yards on his two kick returns. The Sand Springs secondary had a season-best seven pass breakups with one interception from Daren Hawkins. Jerret Haley recorded four tackles and three breakups, and Justis Myers recorded two tackles for loss including a five-yard sack. Joel Mackey blocked a 45-yard field goal attempt.

The Sandite defense was stellar in the second half, giving up only one score on six possessions and five scores on twelve possessions overall. They forced two punts and three turnovers on downs.

Sapulpa outpaced Shawnee 63-35 after an insane second half. The game tied at 21-21, 28-28, and 35-35 before the Chieftains finally pulled away. An onside kick and ensuing possession gave way to the final lead shortly before the end of the third. Sapulpa rattled off four unanswered touchdowns, including a pick six.

Eli Williams led the Chieftain offense with a 7-9-148 passing performance and 114 yards on the ground. Te’zohn Taft recorded 22 carries for 212 yards.

This Season

The Sandites have had a tough year with three come-from-behind losses. They have no problem scoring and no problem getting stops, but both sides of the ball have a hard time finishing. Their only wins are against winless teams, but they have been heavy competitors in the majority of their games. They led Muskogee to start the fourth quarter, led Bartlesville till the final five seconds, and lost to Shawnee in overtime. They could just as easily be 5-3, 4-1 right now.

Sapulpa is on their first winning season since 2013 after two-straight 1-9 years. Despite the records, Sapulpa isn’t too much better than Sand Springs and things could easily go either way. While Sand Springs scheduled two out-of-state powerhouses in their non-district schedule, Sapulpa took on three run-of-the-mill 5A teams. However, they pulled off solid wins against three teams the Sandites lost to.

Against mutual opponents the Sandites are 0-4 with an average score of 19 to 33, while the Chieftains are 3-1 scoring 44 and allowing 47.

The Programs

Sand Springs is coming off a 5-6 season, led by twelfth year Head Coach Dustin Kinard with a 62-66 record. They are riding an all-time program best streak of six-straight seasons with playoff berths. They have been in Class 6A-II since its inception in 2014. The Sandites hold one gold ball, winning the 2A State title in 1966.

Sapulpa is coming off a 1-9 season, led by third-year Head Coach Robert Borgstadt (8-20). They are in their first winning season since 2013, which was also their last playoff appearance. They have been in Class 6A-II since its inception and have never won a gold ball.

The Series (Sapulpa 44-42-5)

The two teams first met in 1922 with a 36-0 Chieftain shutout. Shutouts were a recurring theme for many years, but it’s been more than a decade since the last. Sand Springs has shut out the Chieftains sixteen times, and has been shut out seventeen times. The last blanking came in 2003 when Sapulpa prevailed 40-0 against a winless Sandite team.

Sapulpa’s biggest victory came in 2002, also against an 0-10 Sandite team, at 60-19. That was also the only time either team has ever scored fifty or more points in the series. The biggest shootout came in 2009 when Sand Springs prevailed 49-45. The Sandites’ biggest win was 48-13 in 2008.

The Highway 97 Rivalry hasn’t gone into overtime since 2010, hasn’t ended in a tie since 1964, and has only seen one post-season meeting. Sapulpa won the last overtime game 21-14 and Sand Springs won the lone playoff game 42-14 in 1997.

Sapulpa Head Coach Robert Borgstadt was the Defensive Coordinator in Sand Springs from 2011 to 2015, helping the Sandites to a 32-24 record during that time, culminating in a State Finals appearance in his last year. He has yet to win a game against his former team.

Sapulpa Offensive Coordinator Ryan Nolan coached Wide Receivers at Sand Springs in 2014. Wide Receivers Coach Tim Beacham was the Head Coach at Sand Springs from 2002-2003 when the Sandites went 0-20.

The towns have so much rivalry they even launched an alumni game in 2014. Sapulpa won in 2014 and 2017. Sand Springs won in 2015 and 2016, and the game was cancelled in 2018 due to low registration. It is expected to move to a biennial format in 2019.

CPHS Football: Bixby wins first-ever shutout in Sand Springs, 35-0

IMG_3277.JPG

The Class 6A-II No. 2 ranked Bixby Spartans (7-1, 5-0) rolled to their first ever shutout of Sand Springs Thursday night at Memorial Stadium, dominating No. 11 Charles Page High School 35-0 to remain undefeated in district action.

The Sandites (2-6, 1-4) gave up a 28-0 first-half beat down before rallying defensively in the second half.

Bixby’s average drive was 45 yards on five plays in the first half. They scored on four of six possessions, punted once, and ran out of time on their final possession of the half.

Sophomore quarterback Mason Williams connected with Cade Cavender from 33 yards out on their opening possession, capping a seven-play 57-yard drive. Then the Spartans traveled 89 yards in seven plays with a fifty-yard touchdown run from Braden Roller. Freshman standout Braylin Presley one-upped Roller with a 53-yard scoring run just a minute into the second quarter.

The home team made their first red zone penetration after Caden Pennington broke a pair of tackles for an impressive fifteen-yard run on fourth down. Unfortunately, he threw his second interception of the night at the one-yard line soon after.

Clayton Barbour made a 32-yard interception return, setting up a five-play 67-yard scoring march for the Spartans. Roller ran it in from one yard out for the final score of the half and a 28-0 lead.

The third quarter was a double shutout with rough offensive outings for both teams. Pennington and Williams traded interceptions on their opening drives, with Daren Hawkins hauling in the pick for Sand Springs.

Joel Mackey blocked a 45-yard field goal attempt on Bixby’s next possession, but the Spartans got the ball back on the very next snap with a fumble recovery by Ryan Kerr. The Sandite Defense showed up once again to force a turnover on downs with pass-breakups from Justis Myers, Luke Bratcher, and Jerret Haley.

Barrett Daniel recovered a fumble for the Spartans at the end of the third quarter, setting up a six-play 58-yard scoring drive at the start of the fourth. Williams connected with Luke Creeger from eight-yards out and Reis Vernon kicked the final point of the night.

Sand Springs averaged six plays and 24 yards per possession with five punts, three interceptions, two fumbles, and a turnover on downs. The Spartans scored five touchdowns, punted twice, gave up one interception, and three turnovers on downs.

Pennington was 5-14-84-3 passing and 17-35 on the ground. He connected with Colton Roberts for three receptions and 64 yards. Trey Wilkerson led the ground game with thirteen carries for 64 yards.

Myers, Lucas Adcock, Hayden Cramer, and Brycen Peterman led the defense in tackles, with Myers recording a five-yard sack. Haley racked up four tackles and three pass breakups. Bixby sacked Pennington four times for 33 yards.

Sand Springs will return to action next Friday with a home finale against their arch rivals from No. 7 Sapulpa (6-2, 3-2). Bixby will look to remain undefeated in district action when they host Shawnee (2-6, 2-3).

CPHS Football Halftime Report: Sandites shut out 28-0 by No. 2 Bixby

IMG_3171.JPG

The Class 6A-II No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (2-5, 1-3) gave up a 28-0 first-half shutout to the No. 2 Bixby Spartans (6-1, 4-0) Thursday evening at Memorial stadium.

The Spartans needed only seven plays to travel 57 yards for the first score of the game. Sophomore quarterback Mason Williams connected with Cade Cavender from 33 yards out on their opening possession.

Sand Springs converted three first downs on their opening drive but stalled out at midfield and had to punt. Bixby was even more lethal on their next drive, traveling 89 yards in seven plays with a fifty-yard scoring run from Braden Roller.

Caden Pennington threw his fourth interception of the season on the next drive but the Sandite defense came up big and forced their first punt of the night.

The Sandites’ next drive was also fruitless and the Spartans scored just a minute into the second quarter on a 53 yard run from freshman Braylin Presley.

The home team made their first red zone penetration after Pennington broke a pair of tackles for an incredible fifteen-yard run on fourth down. Unfortunately, he threw his second interception of the night at the one-yard line.

Clayton Barbour made a 32-yard interception return, setting up a five-play 67-yard scoring march for the Spartans. Roller ran it in from one yard out for the final score of the half and a 28-0 lead.

Pennington was 4-9-82-2 passing in the first half with eleven carries for 36 yards to lead the offense. Williams led the Spartans with a 6-9-125-0 passing performance.

The Class 6A-II No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (2-5, 1-3) notched their first district win 35-14 at Ponca City last week. The Sandites are all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, though they could technically still make it if they win out.

To do so they’ll need three-straight upsets, starting with No. 2 Bixby (6-1, 4-0) this Thursday at 7:00 p.m.

Last Week

The Sandites snapped a four-game losing streak with a dominant 35-14 performance in Ponca City (0-7, 0-4). Caden Pennington was 14-22-165-1 passing and 8-64 on the ground for four total touchdowns. Trey Wilkerson led the rush with eight carries for 75 yards and a score. Jacob Snodgrass and Braden Foster each had five receptions for 51 yards, with Snodgrass hauling in a touchdown. Jaden Weiser went 5/5 on PATs.

Hayden Cramer and JT Bristow led a successful defense that racked up 29 yards on eight tackles for loss with four zero-gain stops. The Wildcats managed only 3.5 yards per play and 2.7 yards per carry, while Luke Bratcher and Lucas Adcock provided excellent pass coverage, limiting Justin Andrews to six completions on eighteen attempts. Ponca was forced to punt four times, gave up four turnovers on downs, and was limited to only six plays and eighteen yards per possession.

The Spartans thumped Sapulpa 65-6 in their second-biggest win of the season with a 30-0 first half shutout.

This Season

The Sandites started strong, despite an opening week loss to a tough Texas program. They easily handled a still winless Putnam City team, but things took a downward turn from there. After an unsurprising loss to a powerhouse Arkansas team they suffered three come-from-behind losses. They have no problem scoring and no problem getting stops, but both sides of the ball have a hard time finishing. The Sandites own the No. 9 offense in Class 6A-II.

Bixby is riding a six-game win streak after a 28-14 season-opening loss to Jenks. Since then they’ve recorded two shutouts and hung half a hundred on three different opponents.

The Programs

Sand Springs is coming off a 5-6 season, led by twelfth year Head Coach Dustin Kinard with a 62-65 record. They are riding an all-time program best streak of six-straight seasons with playoff berths. They have been in Class 6A-II since its inception in 2014. The Sandites hold one gold ball, winning the 2A State title in 1966.

The Spartans are coming off an 8-5 season, led by ninth-year Head Coach Loren Montgomery (72-39), a product of Sand Springs during the L.D. Baines era. The Spartans won their first three State Titles in 2014, 2015, and 2016 and came in runner-up last year, all at the 6A-II level.

The Series (Bixby 16-12)

The two teams first met in 1922 during the fourth year of Sandite football when Bixby edged out A.R. Bateman’s Sandites 19-14. Sand Springs won the next two meetings in 1926 and 1927 and the schools didn’t battle again till 1980.

Sand Springs and Bixby split a six-year series in the 1980s, with the lowest-scoring game occurring in 1984 with a 5-3 Sandite victory.

Sand Springs won a 5-3 series in the 1990s. The only overtime game came in 1992 with the Spartans winning 20-17, then Sand Springs notched the first shut out in 1997 at 19-0.

The Spartans have dominated the modern era 9-2 since the series was resurrected in 2010, when the Spartans won a 48-35 shootout in the highest-scoring affair yet.

Things have been particularly competitive since the inception of 6A-II and the teams have met three times in the post-season. The Sandites made their first Semifinal appearance since 1997 in 2014 but were missing their starting kicker, starting quarterback, leading receiver, and the two leading tacklers. They were knocked out 41-14 by the Spartans after losing only 34-31 two weeks prior.

The Sandites shocked the Spartans in 2015 with a 20-0 senior night shutout, their first shutout loss since 2008. They got payback in the post season with a 38-28 State Championship win in the Sandites’ first title game since 1966.

Bixby won the next three meetings after that and their four-straight win streak is the longest streak in the series. They knocked Sand Springs out of the semifinals again in 2016 and won last year’s match 41-21.

CPHS Football: Sandites roll Ponca 35-14, Pennington scores four TDs

IMG_3188.JPG

(Ponca City) - The Class 6A-II No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (2-5, 1-3) picked up their first district win against No. 15 Ponca City (0-7, 0-4) Friday night at Sullins Stadium.

Both of the Wildcats’ touchdowns came in the final seconds of the halves, and the Sandites dominated on all fronts.

Sand Springs scored on five of nine possessions with an average drive of 43 yards in only six plays. They only punted once and gave up a turnover on downs, a fumble, and an interception that resulted in a scoring drive from Ponca. The Wildcats only mustered six plays for eighteen yards per possession, scoring twice on ten drives with four punts and three turnovers on downs. The Sandite defense allowed only 3.5 yards per play, while the offense racked up 7.2 in a balanced offense.

Ponca punted their first two drives and the Sandites gave up a turnover on downs before scoring on a twenty-yard quarterback keeper from Caden Pennington. Jaden Weiser made the extra point kick for a 7-0 first quarter lead.

Ponca almost had a successful drive early in the second quarter, making it as far as third-and-two at the Sandite thirteen-yard line, but a fumbled handoff resulted in a scoring Sandite possession. Sand Springs marched seventy yards and scored on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Pennington to Jacob Snodgrass.

The Wildcats made the mistake of going for a fourth-and-one from their own 46, and Jerret Haley bagged the quarterback for a turnover at the Ponca 40-yard line. Pennington made a forty-yard pass to Justin Roe on the first play and Weiser put the visitors up 21-0 with 4:36 in the half.

Sand Springs’s stellar defense gave up only three yards before forcing another punt, and the Sandites marched 35 yards before Pennington threw an interception to Justin Andrews.

Ponca City averted the first-half shutout with a six-play 53-yard march and scored on a thirteen-yard keeper from Andrews. Spencer Ball kicked the PAT for the final points of the half.

Trey Wilkerson scored on the opening drive of the second half with a 32-yard run, then Pennington scored on a one-play, one-yard drive after a muffed punt for a 35-7 lead to end the third quarter.

Ponca once again scored in the final moments of the half, traveling 53 yards in nine plays, capped by a one-yard keeper.

Pennington led the offense with a 14-22-165-1 passing performance and 8-64 ground game for four total touchdowns. Wilkerson was the leading rusher with eight carries for 75 yards. Snodgrass and Braden Foster both had five catches for 51 yards each. Hayden Cramer and JT Bristow led the defense in tackles.

The win was the Sandites’ seventh-straight against Ponca City and they hold a 26-18-1 series record. In the last seven meetings they’ve won by an average score of 45-15, including a 42-7 drubbing last year.

The Sandites will return to action with a Thursday home game against No. 2 Bixby (6-1, 4-0). The Sandites are all but mathematically eliminated from the playoffs after a rough 0-3 start, but can technically still make it to the post-season if they win out. They’ll need a pair of big upsets against the top-ranked team in the district and the defending State Champions to do so, however.

The Class 6A-II No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (1-5, 0-3) is off to a hot start against No. 15 Ponca City (0-6, 0-3) with a 21-7 halftime lead.

The Wildcats didn’t score their first touchdown till there was only twenty seconds left in the half, set up by a Caden Pennington interception.

Sand Springs gave up only four yards on the home team’s opening drive and marched their corresponding possession to the Wildcat 31-yard line before giving up a turnover on downs. Ponca once again recorded only four yards on their second possession, and this time the Sandites hit pay dirt on their next drive.

Pennington and Trey Wilkerson put together a seven-play 76-yard drive and scored on a twenty-yard keeper with 2:21 in the first quarter. Jaden Weiser kicked the point-after for a 7-0 lead.

The Wildcats put together their first semi-successful drive spanning the first two quarters, marching 49 yards in twelve plays to the Sandite red zone before an unsportsmanlike penalty pushed them back to fourth and fifteen at the 27. A fumbled handoff resulted in a turnover on downs at the 30.

Sand Springs made another triumphant trip to the end zone, traveling seventy yards in ten plays, capped by a 23-yard touchdown pass from Pennington to Jacob Snodgrass. Weiser’s kick made it 14-0 with 6:02 to play.

The Wildcats made the mistake of going for a fourth-and-one from their own 46, and Jerret Haley bagged the quarterback for a turnover at the Ponca 40-yard line. Pennington made a forty-yard pass to Justin Roe on the first play and Weiser put the visitors up 21-0 with 4:36 in the half.

Sand Springs’s stellar defense gave up only three yards before forcing another punt, and the Sandites marched 35 yards before Pennington threw an interception to Justin Andrews.

Ponca City averted the first-half shutout with a six-play 53-yard march and scored on a thirteen-yard keeper. Spencer Ball kicked the PAT for the final points of the half.

Snodgrass made an incredible 42-yard kick return on the next play, but the Sandites were pushed back to their own 33 on a holding call and ended the half without a snap.

Pennington was 8-15-114-1 in the first half and led the ground game with four carries for 47 yards.

The Sandites are riding a six-year win streak against Ponca City and hold a 25-18-1 series record. In the last six meetings they’ve won by an average score of 46-16, including a 42-7 drubbing last year.

CPHS Football Preview: Sandites ride six-year win streak into Ponca City meeting

University of Central Oklahoma freshman Payton Scott ran for 284 yards and five touchdowns on only 25 carries in last year’s lopsided 42-7 victory.

The Class 6A-II No. 11 ranked Charles Page High School football team (1-5, 0-3) is still looking for their first district win, though at this point they’ll need to win out to make the playoffs.

The Sandites will have a good shot at snapping their four-game losing streak when they travel to a winless Ponca City (0-6, 0-3) Friday at 7:00 p.m.

Last Week

The Sandites had homecoming spoiled 29-27 by Bartlesville despite owning a 20-7 lead by the end of the first quarter. Caden Pennington led the offense with a 6-13-138-1 passing performance for three touchdowns and a 13-95 run game. Daren Hawkins caught four passes for 90 yards and two scores and Braden Foster caught two throws for 48 yards and a touchdown. Joel Mackey carried 10-69 for one touchdown and Jaden Weiser was three-for-three on extra point kicks. Luke Bratcher had a forced fumble, Kaden Glass had a recovery, and Mackey blocked a PAT.

Ponca had their second-biggest offensive showing of the season, scoring twenty points against Bixby, but also gave up 57 in their worst defensive allowance.

This Season

The Sandites started strong, despite an opening week loss to a strong Texas program. They easily handled a still winless Putnam City team, but things took a downward turn from there. After an unsurprising loss to a powerhouse Arkansas team they suffered three come-from-behind losses. They have no problem scoring and no problem getting stops, but both sides of the ball have a hard time finishing.

Ponca is riding an eleven game losing streak that that Sandites kicked off last year. They’ve played a fairly tough schedule including two undefeated 5A teams and average 13.5 points per game.

The Programs

Sand Springs is coming off a 5-6 season, led by twelfth year Head Coach Dustin Kinard with a 61-65 record. They are riding an all-time program best streak of six-straight seasons with playoff berths. They have been in Class 6A-II since its inception in 2014. The Sandites hold one gold ball, winning the 2A State title in 1966.

Ponca City coming off a 1-9 season and is led by first-year Head Coach Scott Harmon with a 127-55 record in sixteen seasons at lower classifications. The Wildcats haven’t had a winning season since 2005. They have never won a football title.

The Series (Sand Springs 25-18-1)

The Ponca City series was an exciting one from the very beginning. The first installment was in 1952 when the Wildcats knocked Cecil Hankins’s District Champions out of the playoffs in a home Thanksgiving Day battle. The next year resulted in a 7-7 tie. In 1954, with future MLB 3X World Series champion Jerry Adair at quarterback, the Sandites rallied from a 20-0 deficit to a 21-20 victory.

The series took a hiatus until 1961, when Ponca won handily, then stalled again till 1978. Sand Springs became the first team to win back-to-back meetings in 1981 with a 31-24 triple overtime win on the road.

The Wildcats won three in a row from 1984 to 1986, then Sand Springs won four in a row from 1987 to 1990, including the series’ first shutouts of 20-0 in 1988 and 28-0 in 1990. The Sandites won another streak of four from 1996-1999, then Ponca dominated from 2000 to 2005.

The Wildcats scored 40+ points in three-straight games during the dark ages of Sandite football. Sand Springs lost 28-straight games from 2001-2004, including a 41-0 shutout in 2004 and the Wildcats’ most lopsided victory at 48-2 in 2003.

Brad Odom’s Sandites snapped the losing streak in 2006 with a 21-0 shutout and they won five-straight from there. 2008 saw a wild 45-42 Sandite shootout victory. Sand Springs went 1-9 in 2010, but found their lone victory 35-28 against Ponca.

The Wildcats’ last victory came in 2011, and the Sandites are riding a six-game win streak. Sand Springs scored a series-best 57-7 win in 2013, and the highest-scoring meeting between the two teams came in 2016 at 56-35. Last year Payton Scott scored five touchdowns in a 42-7 road win.
