— Wynnewood running back Trey Knowles told his team to play harder.

After falling behind to Cashion in the second quarter, the senior running back delivered that message to his teammates.

They responded.

The top-ranked Savages scored four straight touchdowns to take a commanding lead en route to a 41-28 victory in the Class A semifinals on Saturday at Harve Collins Field.

“We want it that bad, we just have to play that bad,” Knowles said. “We just went out there and played our game. Played how we can play and came out with a win.”

Wynnewood, which last won a state title in 1992, plays Ringling next week at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater for the Class A championship.

Knowles accounted for three touchdowns, two of which opened the second half, and 175 yards on 23 carries.

And while Wynnewood (13-0) continuously ran the ball with a plethora of rushers, that opened the passing game for senior Jace Brown.

During the four-touchdown onslaught, Brown threw two TDs. He first connected with Levi Phillips for 85 yards to answer Cashion quarterback Ty Reasnor's first touchdown. Brown later hit Gus Reinert for a 30-yard TD in the third quarter that made it 34-7.
