T-Wolves take to the air to cruise past Eagles in regular season finale

LAWTON — In his final regular season game with Norman North, Peyton Gavras didn’t want to leave anything on the field. Despite facing a struggling Eisenhower squad that was just looking to get the game over with, Gavras made sure his Timberwolves came out ready to play.

The senior signal caller threw four first-half touchdown passes on the way to a 48-13 North victory at Cameron Stadium in Lawton. His five touchdown passes on the night gave him 31 for the season. It was also the second time this year he has tossed that many in one game. He threw for 335 yards on 22-of-33 passing.

“He’s just had a tremendous year,” North coach Wade Standley said of Gavras. “That young man had another great night tonight. He continues to get better and better each week. And that’s what we need from him.”

The win pushes the Timberwolves to 9-1 on the season and an impressive 7-0 in district action as it heads into the playoffs.

“It’s awesome, it’s great,” Gavras said. “One of our goals was district champions. Even though we wrapped it up last week, we were presented with another goal of going undefeated in districts. We came out and executed. It’s awesome. It’s fun.”

North set the tone for the night on its second possession of the game. Gavras connected with Tyler Sipe for a 55-yard touchdown pass. Sipe raced untouched into the end zone to give the T-Wolves a 7-0 advantage.

Gavras went deep again to start the second period when he hit Garrett Verble for a 25-yard touchdown that split a pair of EHS (2-8) defenders.

Beau Proctor got the ball back for the T-Wolves when he intercepted Bently Bross. But when Gavras went for another TD pass he was picked off the second time by R.J. Newton.
