OCS was able to strike with a few big plays, scoring on passes of 47, 50 and 42 yards, the last of which was mostly credited to the legs of Luke Frankfurt.

Frankfurt also played a key role on defense as the Saints tried to take away Millwood's short passing game. And he came up with an interception near midfield in the final seconds to seal the win.

“We knew we had to stop their bubble screens, because they try to get their guys in space,” Frankfurt said. “They moved a couple people around, and we just shut them down.”

OCS quarterback Austin Brooks completed 8 of 16 passes for 212 yards, finding Frankfurt three times for 96 yards. Brooks hooked up with Garrett Kilborn for the other two touchdowns, attacking Millwood's speedy defense with big plays.

“We know we're capable of big plays,” Kilborn said. “In practice, we always say to expect big plays every play. That's our mentality.

“We were confident coming in and we knew what we were doing. We knew our goals. We just had to play our game, and that's how we knew we were gonna win.”
