— Anadarko sent a message Friday night against one of the perennial powers of Class 3A.

The No. 3 Warriors kept their undefeated season intact, knocking off No. 7 Tuttle 14-7.

"Anybody that goes against us better recognize that we can beat anybody in any given week," Anadarko quarterback Tyler Melton said. "This has never happened before at Anadarko and it's really special to be a part of it."

Anadarko (9-0) clinches the District 3A-1 title with the win heading into next week's regular-season finale against Weatherford. Tuttle (5-3) plays Marlow next week.

The Warriors led 7-0 for most of the second half before Sheldon Wilson put on a show on Anadarko's first drive of the fourth.

On third and 17 from the Tuttle 41, Melton lofted a pass to Wilson, who made the leaping grab and managed to stay in bounds for a first down.

A play later, Wilson streaked through the Tigers' defense for a 41-yard touchdown.

"It was wide open to the outside," Wilson said. "I just kept plugging along and then it just opened up and I was gone."
