High school football, Week 8: Wagoner hands Bristow its first loss in 29-28 OT thriller

TULSA, Okla. — By John Ferguson Wagoner County American Tribune

WAGONER – Schyler Adair scored the touchdown and the 2-point conversion in overtime to cap a wild comeback as Wagoner handed Bristow its first loss in a 29-28 District 4A-3 showdown before 4,000 at W.L. Odom Field on Thursday night.

The Bulldogs, now 7-1 overall and 4-1 in district, fell behind early and did not lead in the game until the overtime conversion. Bristow (7-1 and 4-1) led 14-0 and scored easily on its first two drives of the game. It looked like the Purple Pirates would match their 49.6 scoring average.

However, the Bulldogs adjusted defensively and played much better in the second half.

“I’m so proud of our effort,” Wagoner coach Dale Condict said. “Being down 14-0 and everything that happened to us last week (during an 18-15 overtime loss at Oologah), they continued to fight.”
