Boneman's top moments: Nos. 5-1
As much as I love wrestling and tennis and baseball, just tough to top these five moments in football and basketball. Again, these are the moments I’ve seen personally, not necessarily the unquestioned top moments of the year.
Without further ado, my top five moments of the ’10-11 school year.
5. Hennessey’s defense puts on a clinic in winning 2A football championship — Do people remember the wind from this game? Seriously, it’s the first thing I think about. There was no way anybody could have had an effective passing game in this one. But the Eagle defense made sure Davis didn’t have a good running game. Led by an incredible defensive effort, Hennessey took it home 14-0. In beating Millwood and Davis in back-to-back week, Shannon Watford’s boys left no doubt as to who was the best team in 2A last season.
4. Edmond Santa Fe girls snap Midwest City’s 50-game winning streak and take the title — It was all about confidence. Most teams when faced against the Bombers and Kaylon Williams and Ashley Clark and Marisha Wallace and company were simply beat before the game even started. Wallace out certainly changed the tone of the game, but the Wolves were waiting for this moment all year. Paced by MVP Courtney Walker, Santa Fe took over in the second half to cruise to the victory. It was the first girls basketball title for an Edmond Public School.
3. Edlam showdown between Memorial and Santa Fe — There is standing room only, and then there is whatever you would call this Tuesday in January. In the girls game, Santa Fe overcame an 18-point deficit to win in overtime. Courtney Walker scored a school-record 41 points. The boys game, if possible, tried to top it. I’ve never seen Santa Fe coach Shawn Schenk more passionate, more crazy than on this night. Led by Josh Richardson and Aaron Anderson, the Wolves won at Memorial. It ended up being the only loss of the season for the Bulldogs. Memorial went 3-1 vs. Santa Fe.
2. Brandon Swindall saves the Soul Bowl for Millwood — In. Cred. Ible. I still have fun watching this video from the Soul Bowl between Millwood and Douglass. The battle between Aliston Cobb of Douglass and Brandon Swindall of Millwood. If you ask me (you didn’t), this was the coming out party for Swindall. While Texas signee Josh Turner admittedly had a good game, Swindall had a game for the ages. It all culminated with him knocking Shon Bridges out of bounds on the final play of the game to preserve the 36-31 victory. Douglass, at the time, was the GREATEST 0-2 team I’ve ever seen. The Trojans never lost again in winning the state championship.
