Morrison's season ends at hands of familiar foe

·1 min read

Dec. 4—Morrison football is all too familiar with the script that developed Friday night at Western Heights in Oklahoma City.

For a second-straight season, Morrison's playoff run came to an end at the hands of Ringling.

The Wildcats (10-4) lost their Class A state semifinal game, 13-12, to bring an end to their season.

It was a defensive slugfest throughout the game, with neither team scoring in the first half. Turnovers were a big factor for Morrison, as the Wildcats turned the ball over three times in the opening two quarters.

Ringling finally put points on the board in the third quarter and a bit of back-and-forth followed.

Morrison managed to score shortly after Ringling with a 1-yard touchdown run by star tailback Tyler Voss, but failed to convert making it 7-6 late in the third.

The Blue Devils built on their lead with a score early in the fourth quarter to move ahead 13-6, putting Morrison's back against the wall.

However, the Wildcats did respond with a touchdown on a scoop and score from its defense in the final minutes of regulation, but once again failed to convert a 2-point attempt and ultimately came one game — and one point — shy of the Class A state championship game.

Morrison will head into the offseason trying to revamp its backfield, as quarterback Jalen Powell and Voss — who accounted for most of Morrison's offensive production this year — will graduate.
