Norman North struggled to get any traction on the ground, rushing for just 79 yards on 25 carries.
“We got a lot of pressure on them,” Diaz said. “Anytime you can make a team just do one thing, it's good. We were able to do some different things with our coverages because they couldn't run the ball.”
Timberwolves running back Bryan Payne had 25 yards rushing on just five carries before leaving with a leg injury late in the first half. Payne was hurt on a kick return and Norman's coaches were called for a personal foul arguing that the play should've been penalized.
Lawton has had its share of running back issues this season since workhorse Ivan Thomas was lost for the season. The Wolverines had eight players carry the ball in the win, led by Curtez Zachary's 98 yards.
The Wolverines beat Broken Arrow 35-21 in the second round a year ago.
“We want to go up there and prove that we can beat them at their place,” Diaz said.
