OKLAHOMA CITY —
The Fightin’ Chicks defense picked up another fumble with just minutes left to heap more misery on the Spartans during their homecoming. This time, Montana Stonecalf found Morris’ 30 yard pass and dragged a few defenders with him to make the score 22-0 at halftime.
Turnovers continued to plague Southeast to start the second half. A fumble on their opening drive of the third quarter gave Chickasha a chance they didn’t squander. On the first play, Morris connected with Stonecalf again on a 31-yard pass for the touchdown to extend the lead by seven.
One more turnover was all it took for the Spartans to press the panic button. A botched snap by Gillespie gave Chickasha the ball inside the 10, but they were unable to convert. That still brought Joshua Means off the bench to take over at quarterback, and it worked. A prolonged drive ended on a 21-yard passing play to Malik Swain. The 6’ 1”, 179 pound wide receiver sped from east to west and found the open field, not that any tacklers could have stopped his towering frame. That made the score 29-7.
Chickasha responded with a long pass of their own. After driving past midfield, Morris found running back Tresjon Davis on a screen pass with a lot of real estate ahead. Davis went the whole 40 yards for the touchdown to take the lead back to 29. Josh Latham added a 55-yard touchdown run later on in the fourth.
