— Edmond Santa Fe's depth was too much for Bartlesville.

Santa Fe got plenty of help from its bench while most of the Bruins' scoring was handled by two players as the Wolves advanced to the Class 6A semifinals with a 47-43 win Thursday night at the Skiatook Multi-Purpose Activity Center.

Edmond Santa Fe (20-6) will play the winner of Thursday's late game between Tulsa Union and Lawton Eisenhower at 9 p.m. Friday at Oral Roberts' Mabee Center.

Bartlesville's season ends 23-4.

Bartlesville relied on Ramon Benson and Jakob Hartsock for its scoring, as they combined for 26 points.

Seven players scored for Santa Fe, with Aaron Anderson leading the way with 11.

“We limited our turnovers in the second half and were able to come out ahead,” Anderson said. “We knew they only had five guys so if we could get them in foul trouble, we'd be in great shape.”

The Wolves got 13 points from their bench, while the Bruins reserves scored just two points.

Santa Fe led by nine early in the third quarter but Bartlesville fought back, taking the lead just more than two minutes into the fourth on Kolin Tribble's 3-pointer.
