Nault scored on a 30-yard run on the first play of the final period to cut the lead to 19-17.

Newton gave Kingfisher an insurance touchdown on a 73-yard run later in the quarter.

Doc Harvey scored on his second touchdown of the game on a three-yard run for the final 31-26 margin.

Trenton Newsom scored on runs of 49 and 38 yards for the Chieftians, 12-1.
