Wayne beats Wynnewood to win second straight district championship

Three plays into the game, Jace Brown hit B.J. Morris for a 57-yard touchdown.

By the time the game was over, Brown had thrown for 312 yards and five touchdowns.

“It was a bit of a surprise, but we've had some problems at times with the pass,” Martin said. “Once they found something that they could take advantage of against us, it wasn't a surprise that they kept trying it.”

Wayne took the lead for good early in the fourth, when sophomore Louden Johnson — on just his second carry of the game — broke off a 36-yard touchdown run on third down.

“We we're working, we can put up 40 or 50 points a half on almost anybody,” Martin said. “And we showed how good we were on offense tonight against a pretty good defense.

“We've got four or five guys we can give it to and get big gains out of. It's not just Josh and I.”

After Way's second interception of the game, the Bulldogs went on a 13-play, six-plus minute drive the seemingly put the game away, 47-35.

But Wynnewood came back to cut the deficit to one touchdown with less than a minute left. The Savages' onside kick was recovered by Wayne, ending the threat.
