NORMAN —

The Timberwolves averaged more than 40 points a game this season, and they’ll bring back the weapons next year to do so again.

Kulbeth effective in first start

Washington began the season with hopes of a district title and a deep playoff run. An ACL tear suffered by starting quarterback Brock Harmon in a Week 10 district title game derailed the first goal, but thanks to his replacement the second remains very much in play.

Junior Brady Kulbeth moved from receiver to quarterback for the Warriors and was impressive in his first career start. He got off to a hot start in the Warrior’s first-round playoff matchup with Lexington and didn’t look back. Several big plays got the Warriors off to a big lead early on his way to 161 yards and three touchdowns on just twelve touches.

He wasn’t the only one to find success against the Bulldogs. Running back Luke Ladlee added another 152 yards.

“The holes were everywhere,” Ladlee said. “We could pretty much run it where we wanted.”

Hennessey struggles in opener

The win over Lexington earned Washington the right to advance to face 10-1 Hennessey in the second round of the Class 2A playoffs.

It’s an intimidating matchup, but one that became less so after Hennessey struggled to dispatch Crooked Oak in the first round on Friday. Crooked Oak spent the entire game in striking distance before eventually falling by a single possession, 28-21.

The Warriors will travel to Hennessey for Friday’s 7:30 p.m. game.
