  • ADAIR — As the offensives went up and down the field throughout the fourth quarter, the Davis Wolves defense held the line in the final seconds to beat Adair 34-33.
    After the Warriors' Brady Bradbury scored a 2-yard touchdown, the team tried for two and the lead. Bradbury's pass was incomplete, but the Wolves were called for pass interference. From one and half yards, the Wolves kept Bradbury from running in the ball.
    "We were thinking 'don't let them in.' It's for the whole team. We worked all summer for that one play," said Davis senior Jordan Wilson.
    Davis struggled to contain Bradbury who rushed for 208 yards.
    "They did a good job catching us. They zigged, when we zagged. They had our number, but we're not going to apologize for a playoff win," said Davis head coach Jody Weber.
    Davis fell behind 13-0 early. Then, Michael Nowden returned the kickoff 75 yards to put the Wolves on the board.
    Alec Hetherington had a 17-yard pass to Blake Summers to bring the Wolves within one before halftime. Davis opened the second half with Deaundre' Carr scoring off a 64-yard run.
    Carr scored again on a 54-yard run and completed the two-point conversion. Nowden found an opening on a 40-yard run.
    Davis will face Vian at 7:30 Friday night at Midwest City for the chance to play in the Class 2A state championship.
    "I appreciate this many Davis fans coming across the state to watch a football game. Davis is truly the best community in Oklahoma," Weber said.
