SMQ: Ed North vs. Lawton...
By Robert Przybylo
For one half, the Lawton and Edmond North game was everything I thought it could be. But one penalty here, one dropped pass here, and boom, Lawton took over.
A sensational running performance by the Wolverines (Charles Smith and Domonique Massengill) has Lawton moving on to travel to Tulsa Union on Friday in the 6A quarterfinals.
Lawton 34, North 16
The first half was all about who had the wind. Lawton scored 14 points in the first quarter. North came right back and put up a 16 spot in the second quarter.
I was impressed with the Huskies’ fight. Against Midwest City and Memorial, once down, North hadn’t shown that ability to bounce back.
North fought back and fought hard, led by senior leader Joe Aska Jr. But when Lawton mounted a second surge, there was nothing left for the Huskies.
North suffered a huge blow when senior defensive leader Colton Byford injured himself on the opening kickoff and missed the rest of the game.
Lawton couldn’t pass the ball well, so it didn’t throw it. And why would you with that running game? In the third quarter, North had three possessions and all were 3 & out. I was extremely impressed by Sonny Puletasi all night and Jamaal Allen laid out Jared Benway like nobody else I’ve seen before.
North quarterback Travis Townsend was poised in the first half but seemed rushed in the second half. After a couple of tough possessions, seemed like he was trying to do too much, especially on the interception throw.
Still a banner season for North. That 6-0 start had everyone thinking bigger and bigger things. Injuries and tougher opposition derailed the train.
I was impressed with Lawton’s offense. I really think Lawton will give Tulsa Union a serious battle next week.
