Harris' replacement, Corbin Richardson, completed 2-of-6 passes for 19 yards and was picked off twice, and the Knights leaned heavily on running back Lorenzo Alexander, who carried 22 times for 44 yards and scored Northwest's only touchdown. Richardson had 14 carries but netted minus-13 yards.

El Reno took over at the Northwest 26 after the first tipped punt following the Knights' first offensive series and quickly scored on a 27-yard scamper by running back Donnie Everheart. El Reno's Mason Archer blocked a punt later in the first quarter, leading to a 29-yard field goal by Tyler Hughey.

Baker's first interception came at the Indians' 32 in the second quarter. On offense, he later completed a six-play scoring drive with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Brown, putting the Indians up 17-0. Those two connected again during El Reno's first second-half series on a 7-yard touchdown pass.

A 40-yard punt return by Fre'Darian Ashley to the El Reno 11 set up a 4-yard touchdown run by Richardson with 6:19 left.
