EDMOND — Hartshorne's Trey Medicine Bear didn't have to wait long to make amends after missing a key extra point late in Friday's playoff game against Oklahoma Christian.
Medicine Bear caught a 10-yard scoring pass from quarterback Dylan Pingleton in overtime to give the Miners a 32-25 come-from-behind win over the defending District 2A champs.
Running back Dallas Herring rushed for 105 yards and four touchdowns for Hartshorne (11-2), which overcame a 13-point deficit in the third quarter to advance to the semifinals against Millwood.
Herring's final touchdown, from six yards out, tied the game 25-25 with 6:17 to play in regulation. Medicine Bear's extra point would have given the Miners their first lead of the night.
But the freshman missed the kick. He redeemed himself on the first possession of overtime.
“We snuck him in there,” coach Bill Williams said of the freshman, who scored a touchdown the week before against Commerce.
After gaining nine yards from the 10-yard-line on Oklahoma Christian's first snap of overtime, running back Luke Frankfurt fumbled his next carry and the Miners recovered to advance.
It was an uncharacteristic ending to what had been a big night for Frankfurt, who scored twice and gained 189 yards of total offense, including 153 yards rushing and two touchdowns.
A third rushing touchdown by Frankfurt, this one from 39 yards at the end of the first half, was wiped out by a penalty. The Saints settled for a field goal to take an 18-12 lead at halftime.
Penalties hurt Oklahoma Christian, which was flagged 12 times for 125 yards.
“He's been carrying us all season,” Oklahoma Christian coach Derek Turner said of Frankfurt, one of several Saints who took the loss hard. “But you can't take anything away from them. They did a really good job.”
