Coming into his teams game against Waurika, Wilson head coach Kenny Ridley made the point that Waurika was the favorite to win the district title for a reason.
Friday night at Cy Sloan Memorial Stadium, he was unfortunately proven right.
Despite a spirited effort by Wilson, Waurika proved to be too much on the night as Waurika won 62-34 over Wilson, handing them their first loss of the season.
The defeat drops Wilson to 4-1 overall and 0-1 in district play.
Next up for Wilson will be a district contest at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night at Skinny Stewart Stadium against the Central High Bronchos.
Wilson came out swinging in the first quarter as Logan Schaaf scored connected with Shane Honea for a 97-yard touchdown pass to make it 8-0 after the two-point conversion was successful off a catch from Caylen Fulton.
Waurika was right back in it though less than two minutes later off a one-yard touchdown run, but the two-point conversion failed, leaving it at 8-6.
Honea then extended the lead for Wilson as he returned the ensuing kickoff 82-yards for the touchdown, before the two-point conversion failed.
Things were all tied up with less than three minutes to go in the first quarter as Waurika got an 18-yard touchdown run, to make it 14-14 after the two-point conversion.
Less than two minutes into the second quarter, Schaaf put Wilson back in front as he pushed his way in from one yard out to make it 20-14 after the failed two-point conversion.
However, two scores from Waurika before the end of the first half, including one with 16 seconds left made it a 28-20 deficit for Wilson going into the locker room.
Waurika extended its lead in the third quarter to 36-20 with a two yard touchdown followed by the two-point conversion, before Wilson struck back with Schaaf finding Honea for a 58-yard touchdown pass to make it 36-28 after the two-point conversion by Schaaf.
Unfortunately, four straight scores by Waurika put the game out of reach as Wilson found itself down 62-28.
Schaaf would find Honea one last time with just over four minutes to go in the fourth quarter on a 27-yard touchdown pass to finish the scoring.
Waurika racked up 611 yards of total offense in the game as compared to 358 from Wilson.
Schaaf finished the game 11-of-16 passing for 254 yards and three touchdowns, while carrying the ball 17 times for 60 yards.
Honea carried the ball four times for 33 yards, with Hayden Mantooth going for 24 yards on nine carries.
Honea was the leading receiver on the night with eight catches for 219 yards and three touchdowns.
