— For the second consecutive season, the Laverne Tigers left Milam Stadium as the Class B state champions following a 42-12 triumph over Pond Creek-Hunter.

Laverne relied heavily on Trevor Harris and a dominant run game, accumulating 450 yards of offense on the ground and 468 yards of total offense. Harris carried the ball 16 times for 297 yards and four touchdowns to anchor the Tiger offense.

After both teams failed to score on their opening drives, Pond Creek-Hunter was in position to take an early lead before a Haley Comeau fumble was recovered by Laverne's Tanner Allen at the Laverne18-yard line. Two plays later, Harris found the corner and scampered 77 yards to the end zone, putting LHS on top 8-0.

On Laverne's next drive, it was Harris again dialing up long distance and racing 70 yards past the Panthers defense to put his team up 14-0 early in the second quarter. Comeau put Pond Creek-Hunter on the board late in the first half with a nine-yard touchdown run, cutting LHS's lead down to 14-6 at the break.

The third quarter belonged to Harris, who hit for touchdown runs of 51 and four yards, pushing the Laverne lead to 28-12 going into the final stanza. Pond Creek-Hunter got a 20-yard touchdown pass from Josh Irvin to Jevan Overton on a broken coverage early in the fourth quarter, but Laverne scored twice more on touchdown runs from Tucker Rolf and Dalton Birch to help salt the game away.
