It didn’t take long to see why Bixby has won three consecutive 6A-II state championships. Bixby created two turnovers on the Wildcats opening drives and never looked back, winning 68-7. The Spartans starting RB Tucker Pawley returned from injury to rush for 65 yds and 2 touchdowns behind what is arguably the best offensive line in the state. Bixby’s o-line features Oklahoma State commit Bryce Bray and Tulsa commit Josh Owens. Bixby was also solid in the return game, as Clayton Barbour would return two punts for td’s. The Wildcats could never get things going offensively in the 1st half, but put together some solid drives in the 2nd half that would stall. The Wildcats’ offensive leaders were QB Justin Andrews, who threw for 172 yds to receivers Dalton Vogele (64 yds), Dylon Fahs (22 yds), and Trevor Owens for the longest pass of the night for 53 yds. Defensively Josh Fairbanks, Daylan Hawkins & Abram Arechiga would all finish with double digit tackles. The big highlight of the night came in the 3rd qt, when Lennox Suneagle would get a strip sack that Daylan Hawkins would scoop up and return 71 yds for the lone td of the game. With all the weapons Bixby has, it would seem that they are fully capable of winning the state title for the fourth consecutive year. Ponca City has a quick turnaround as they travel to Sapulpa Thursday night for a very winnable matchup. The Wildcats will be on the road for a third consecutive week when they play Norman on the road before they return home for the final regular season game against Muskogee.
