“I feel like this was the best defense we've played the whole year,” said safety Khari Harding. “This was big, because we feel like we're one of the best out there.”

Manning said he was worried about Lawton gaining momentum after a couple of fourth-quarter touchdowns. Trying to protect the maximum 15 district points his team would gain on margin of victory, Manning reinserted his first-team offense after Lawton tried an onside kick with a little more than five minutes to play. Still, it would have taken at least three more Lawton scores to cut into Santa Fe's district points.

Hansen took the team 55 yards in three plays for the final TD.

“You've got to protect your team and what you're doing,” Manning said. “We've got our JV out there, and if things get out of control, it can go back the other way in a hurry. I just wanted to get out there and get another score. We had our JV in there, and I expected them to start subbing, and we could get the clock run out, but that's not what happened.”

Hansen was sharp from the opening drive, when he hurdled a defender on his way to a 26-yard TD run. He finished with 104 rushing yards and three touchdowns, while throwing for 286 yards and four TDs.

“We've had our ups and downs this season,” Hansen said. “It was nice to come out here and put together a real solid game all the way through.”
