at’s something Kingfisher coaches thought they could do heading into the game.
"We felt like we could get some pressure on them,” Kingfisher coach Jeff Myers said. "We had to use our athleticism. I know that sounds funny playing Millwood, but we’re quick and we used it to our advantage.”
Millwood looked like it would dominate early. The Faclons took the opening kickoff and drove 55 yards, finishing on a 12-yard pass from Richardson to Josh Turner.
Millwood went up 12-0 on a short run from Gatewood set up by a Kingfisher fumble on the kickoff.
But it was all Kingfisher the rest of the way as it blew the game open with two touchdowns in the final quarter. Patterson capped the game with a 45-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Woods, his second touchdown reception of the game.
Things won’t get any easier next week, but count Kingfisher in for the challenge.
"Our kids are hungry,” Myers said. "They want a state championship. If we’re the sleeper or underdog it still tastes the same.”
