MIDWEST CITY — The Midwest City offense has been looking for a spark, and it might have found it in KeSean Brown.
The senior wide receiver has transitioned to a steady running back role the last two weeks and become the workhorse of the Bomber offense.
On Friday night, his three touchdowns and 156 rushing yards were plenty to complement the powerful Bomber defense in a crucial 19-13 win over Edmond North in a District 6A-3 game at Jim Darnell Stadium.
The Midwest City defense, which has been one of the state's best all season, turned in another dominating performance, creating five turnovers and allowing only 242 yards to improve to 7-2 overall and move one step closer to earning a home playoff berth.
“We came to play. Their offensive line is great, and our defensive line is great, and we were just gonna see who was better,” Bomber defensive tackle Brandon Jones said. “We came out strong mentally and physically, and we got the ‘W.'”
Midwest City (7-2, 4-2) intercepted two Edmond North (5-4, 4-2) passes in the first half, and recovered three fumbles in the second half.
The second interception of the day came in the middle of a game-turning six-play swing that ultimately put the Bombers ahead for good.
Trailing 3-0 with seven minutes left in the first half, Midwest City called Brown's number, and the senior found a huge hole, cutting up and rushing 54 yards for the touchdown.
Three snaps later, Midwest City's DeJuan Shaw came up with an interception — his second crucial pick in the last two games — and on second down, Brown went 20 yards for his second score.
