Owasso holds off Enid, 19-14

OWASSO — Trailing by five points with 2 minutes left in the game, the Enid Plainsmen needed a big play.

And Mark Johnson provided it.

The senior all-purpose player returned a punt 42 yards to midfield, setting the stage for a comeback win.

But that was the last big play the Plainsmen could muster Friday night, and the Big Blue dropped a 19-14 decision to Owasso in the District 6A-4 opener.

A run and three pass attempts failed to gain much yardage, and the Rams were able to run out the final minute to clinch the win on their homecoming night at Owasso Stadium.

The loss dropped the Plainsmen to 2-2 overall and 0-1 in the league. Owasso improved to 2-2, 1-0.

Enid junior tailback Jonathan Burton turned in another impressive performance, rushing for 162 yards, including a 79-yard touchdown sprint in the first period. Through four games, Burton has rushed for 683 yards and five touchdowns.

He also caught three passes, including a 10-yard TD reception from Alex Patterson in the fourth period.

Patterson went the distance, completing 8 of 15 passes for 88 yards against a fast, aggressive Owasso defense led by Oklahoma Sooners commitment Aaron Colvin at strong safety.

After a scoreless first period, Enid had a chance to take the lead early in the second period but Matt Blakley’s 28-yard field goal attempt missed wide right.

Owasso then marched 80 yards in nine plays before Colvin lined up at quarterback and dashed 16 yards for the score.

But the Plainsmen answered on the first play of the ensuing possession as Burton broke a tackle along the Enid sideline and sprinted for a 79-yard touchdown.

The Rams took the lead for good on the first possession of the third period, driving 62 yards in nine plays before Kason Key connected with Matt Logsdon on a 4-yard TD pass. Key, a sophomore, finished 14-of-18 for 126 yards.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.
