The Tuttle Tigers are moving on in the Class 4A postseason.

The Tigers hosted Newcastle in Tuttle on Friday in the second round of the playoffs and moved to 2-0 against the Racers this season by picking up a 31-21 victory. 

Newcastle turned the ball over on its first three possessions, and those turnovers led to a 17-0 Tuttle run to start the game. Newcastle turned the ball over four times in the game.

Tuttle's first score came after a Bode Brooks interception on defense. Running back Canon West scored from 7 yards out to give the Tigers the lead.

With a 7-0 lead, the Tigers came up with a fumble recovery on Newcastle's second offensive possession and ended up with another touchdown on offense. On Tuttle's first offensive play after the turnover, quarterback Jayden Seebold found Hunter Anderson for a 35-yard touchdown.

Anderson went past the 100-yard receiving mark for the Tigers. Seebold recorded two touchdown passes and a touchdown run in the victory and now has six touchdowns in two playoff games.

Dillon Ballard recorded Tuttle's second interception in the first quarter, and the ensuing drive led to a Bryce Legg field goal in the second quarter. That field goal gave the Tigers a 17-0 lead over the Racers.

Tuttle extended its lead to 24-3 in the second quarter after Seebold's touchdown run and the extra point. The Tigers went to halftime with a 24-10 lead.

Leading 24-13 in the third quarter, the Tigers faced a fourth-and-long at Newcastle's 26-yard line. After Seebold dropped back and found West with the pass, West made his way through the opposing defense and found the end zone for a touchdown.

Tuttle held a 31-13 lead after the extra point, and Newcastle added the final eight points in the fourth quarter.

Tuttle moved to 11-1 on the season with the victory. Its next scheduled game is a road game with Wagoner in the Class 4A quarterfinals.
