WAYNE — Wayne went into Friday night's game against Wynnewood expecting to win.

The Bulldogs, though, didn't expect to win in a wild, 47-42 shoot-out.

“I was expecting 14-10 or something like that,” Wayne quarterback Sam Martin said. “That just shows you how good these two offenses are.”

The win gave Wayne (8-1) its second consecutive District A-5 title. Wynnewood (8-1) will be the second seed in the district.

The loss likely means Wynnewood would have to face top-ranked Woodland in the second round if both teams advance.

“It definitely helps us out down the road,” Wayne offensive lineman Caleb Osborne said.

Wynnewood entered the game having given up just 40 points combined all season and having shut out its last four opponents.

But the Bulldogs used the strong running of Josh Way and Martin to score early and often.

Way ran for four touchdowns and scored another on an interception return. He finished with 155 yards on 28 carries.

Martin ran for 84 and a score.

“We worked hard this week,” Way said. “We made mistakes, but we kept improving. This week was important to us. We made history tonight to win back-to-back district titles.”

Wynnewood went into the game relying primarily on running back Trey Knowles for its offensive production, but the Savages attacked Wayne through the air right from the outset.
