LAWTON — The worst-case scenario happened for Edmond Santa Fe, and Lawton took full advantage.

The fourth-ranked Wolves not only failed to stop Lawton's Michael Warren, but they lost Oklahoma quarterback commitment Justice Hansen on the game's opening drive to an injury that left him on crutches.

The result? A 50-33 drubbing by the sixth-ranked Wolverines at Cameron Stadium that ended Santa Fe's 17-game winning streak in District 6A-4 play.

“There's no excuses,” Santa Fe coach Lance Manning said. “It happens to everybody. That being said, when you lose one of the best players in the country it's going to effect you.”

Manning said the severity of Hansen's injury is unknown, and he will know more after X-rays. The initial thought, though, is there is no damage to any tendons or ligaments.

Once Hansen went down, Lawton (7-0 overall, 4-0 district) went to work.

Warren, who set a school record for rushing yards in a game last week, finished with 330 yards and five touchdowns on 26 carries to eclipse that mark.

“We felt like we could run the football on them, we felt like we could dominate the offensive and defensive line of scrimmage and we did do that,” Lawton coach Randy Breeze said. “They brought people in the box, and we force-fed the football with seven, eight people in the box.

“He's very, very special, and he's done that himself. He's come a long ways on this football team. We're real proud of Michael.”
