Plainview falls, Davis advances
Davis 26, Jones 20, OT
DAVIS — Trailing 17-6 at halftime, Davis didn’t panic.
Zac Maynard scored from six yards out in overtime and Davis held Jones’ potent spread offense to three points in the second half of a classic Wolves win Friday night. Davis, ranked second in 2A, will travel to Lincoln Christian next week for a rematch of last year’s quarterfinal. Lincoln Christian beat Davis 24-21 en route to the 2A championship in 2009.
Davis’ defense was tested throughout, but came up with key plays in the second half and took advantage of Jones’ penchant for drive-stalling penalties and miscues.
In the fourth quarter, Jones (9-3) drove 74 yards to the 1 only to get a 25-yard Nathan Lee field goal to tie the score at 20-all. Davis (10-1) was stuffed twice on fourth-and short opportunities in the fourth, but made amends by forcing Jones into a 36-yard field goal try in OT.
The Longhorns missed the kick and it only took the Wolves two plays to punch it in from 10 yards.
Maynard scored touchdowns on each side of halftime and Matt Burba added a 15-yard TD run in the third quarter. Alec Hetherington caught a 72-yard TD pass from Cole Weber to put Davis up 20-17 in the third.
Jones committed eight penalties for 55 yards — six in the second half.
Cashion 25, Ringling 16
CASHION — Class A No. 2 Cashion defended its home field against No. 5 Ringling Friday night in the second round.
Ringling finished the season 8-3. No statistics were reported. See Sunday’s Ardmoreite for a game summary.
Dewar 46, Fox 6
DEWAR — Fox couldn’t push past the immovable No. 1 Dewar Warriors in the Class B second round on Friday.
Chris Spigner hit Dalton Langley with a 60-yard touchdown pass on the Foxes’ first play from scrimmage, but Dewar led 20-6 at halftime.
“We fought but we just had too many mistakes,” Fox coach Brent Phelps said. “There’s a lot of little things we didn’t do good. We did not execute when we needed to.
“They were disciplined and didn’t make any mistakes and capitalized on offense.”
Fox finished its season 9-3 and returns much of its core next season.
“We improved every game and the kids played together,” Phelps said. “It was fun and the kids played with lots of heart all year long.”
Bethany 31, Plainview 21
PLAINVIEW — Plainview jumped out to a 21-7 halftime lead, but turnovers doomed them in the second half as they lost to Bethany 31-21 at Indian Field on Friday night.
The Indians got two touchdowns from Blake Campo and Chad Smith threw a touchdown pass to Gary Heller late in the second quarter top give Plainview a 21-7 lead.
But Plainview failed to get a first down in the second half, and had a blocked punt, a fumble and an interception led to easy scores for the Bronchos.
