The change led to confusion as the referee signaled fourth down when the spot came back just short of a first down.
First, Kingfisher quarterback Grant Newton protested, then Jeff Myers used a timeout to plead with officials to change the down.
After a discussion between officials, the down marker was corrected and Kingfisher was given its timeout back.
It didn't matter much as Newton ran for five yards on the next play to pick up the first down, then Landon Nault went for a 43-yard touchdown on the next play to pull the Yellowjackets within a touchdown, 14-7.
FAMILY RUNS DEEP
Blanchard center Tucker Yarbrough wasn't the only connection to Blanchard's 1979 state title team.
Before Friday, that was the Lions only football state championship.
Yarbrough's dad, Darren, played on that team.
Blanchard sophomore nose guard Clay Richey's dad, Scott, also played on that state championship team.
Blanchard beat Hartshorne 37-14 to win the Class A title in 1979.
