“There was just a hole there,” Wand said. “The line did a great job of splitting it. I just hit it.”

Wand also threw the game-winning touchdown pass. He had a halfback heave that failed early in the first half, but he connected with wide receiver Evan Nicklas when Edmond Memorial needed him to most. Wand started the season as the Bulldogs' quarterback before he was moved to the backfield.

“That pass was a great pass, but it was also a great catch,” Merideth said.

Bulldogs running back Waylan Anderson contributed 97 total yards and two touchdowns.

Southmoore rushed for more than 300 yards. Running back Pierce Spead rushed for 147 yards on 15 carries with a touchdown.

But it wasn't enough against an inspired Edmond Memorial team that wanted to feel no regrets Saturday morning.

“No regrets,” Anderson said. “We left it all on the field.”

Southmoore fell to 5-3 and 2-3.
