Tipton wins Okla. state title

16 points in 4th secure 2nd try at crown

WEATHERFORD, Okla. — After being denied a year ago, the Tipton Tigers are now the Oklahoma Class C state champions.

Tipton overcame a 12-6 halftime deficit with 24 unanswered points to beat the Forgan Bulldogs 30-12 Saturday at Southwestern Oklahoma State's Fast Lane Field.

The Tigers, who lost 26-6 in last year's state final to Shattuck, finish the season 14-0, while the Bulldogs end the year at 13-1.

Trailing 12-6 at the half, the Tigers managed to take the lead on a 1-yard run by Josh Torres and a two-point conversion run by Bryant Flores.

The score, however, stayed close until late in the final period when Flores broke away for an 80-yard touchdown run with 3:52 remaining.

A conversion run by Josh Danna put the Tigers up 22-12.

Torres and Flores would add the final points as Torres ran 41 yards for the touchdown and Flores ran in the two-point conversion to give the Tigers the 30-22 win.

Tipton had 361 yards of total offense with 284 on the ground.

Torres had two interceptions for the Tigers against Forgan's highly-touted quarterback Dalton Lemieux, who completed less than 50 percent of his tosses (8-19-2) and was held to 166 yards.

The Bulldogs went into the game averaging more than 400 yards of offense and 49.7 points. They were held to 202 yards and just 12 points.

This was the first state title for Tipton since the 1997 season. Prior to that, the Tigers captured the state crown in 1952.
