Our two Osage County schools in the Class A playoffs are both moving on to the quarterfinals, after Barnsdall and Pawhuska won on the road in round two of the postseason on Friday night.
Pawhuska had a comeback for the ages, as the Huskies had their second big deficit going into halftime this year, but unlike Pawnee in week 10, this time they finished the deal.
Pawhuska topped Stroud 34-26, handing the Tigers their first loss of the season. Pawhuska was down 26-0 at halftime and reeled off 34 unanswered points to advance to its first state quarterfinal appearance since 2011.
Stroud had one final chance down by eight in the final minute to try to tie the game, when the Huskies came up with a monster stop.
Bryce Drummond and Kevin Davis did most of the damage in the second half. It was this Davis touchdown with just less than four minutes to play that ended up putting Pawhuksa on top for good.
The Huskies will host Ringling in the quarterfinal round of the Class A playoffs on Friday night, just 24 hours after Thanksgiving at Ormond Beach Stadium.
