Every time they had to, Tigers stepped up, made plays

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Sanchez finished with a single catch worth eight yards. It is for games like Lewis’ the term “shutdown corner” was coined.

“You’ve just got to stay confident,” he said. “You’ve got to trust in your skills. That’s what I did.”

The Tigers won and won big. And while forecasting prep football success this time of year is no picnic, NHS has found a formula. It helps to be a good team, and the Tigers clearly are. Also, win all the big moments, as the Tigers clearly did.

One more thing?

Get a good draw.

Three other teams will meet Union, Jenks or Broken Arrow next week, but NHS will get tonight’s Sapulpa-Owasso winner.

The fifth-ranked Rams should win the game and just like it was time the Tigers won another playoff game, it’s time they beat Owasso, too.

Clobbering Yukon, it’s like they drew themselves a map.
