— Broken Arrow spent extra time planning for Westmoore's offense during the week, and for good reason.

The fourth-ranked Tigers used three turnovers and a goal-line stand Friday to rally against the fifth-ranked Jaguars for a 20-10 victory at Moore Stadium that clinched second place in District 6A-2.

“All week the goal was just to be physical with them for four quarters and stay with them all night,” said Broken Arrow junior Isaac Armstead, who came up with the crucial interception with five minutes remaining that set up the game-sealing touchdown.

Broken Arrow will play host to Tulsa Washington next week, while Westmoore falls to third in the district and will travel to Sand Springs.

The Tigers (8-2, 6-1) struggled offensively against the pressure from Westmoore, failing to really gain any momentum until they faced a 10-0 deficit in the second quarter.

From there, though, it was all Broken Arrow.

“Our defense wasn't fazed,” Armstead said. “We went into halftime thinking we were fine and going to get a turnover to get back in this game. I'm glad we could do that.”

The Tigers scored 20 unanswered points — 13 of which came in the second half — and held the Jaguars to 89 yards in the second half.

“It shows a lot of resilience overcoming some adversity, traveling over here and doing some things,” Broken Arrow coach Steve Spavital said. “It shows a lot about our football team because they go up on us and we fought back.”
