OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Heritage Hall Chargers continued to cruise and topped the Bridge Creek Bobcats 34-0 Friday to advance to the Class 3A quarterfinals.

The game saw the return of star running back Barry Sanders after he missed the Chargers’ (12-0) last five games due to a sprained ligament in his foot.

Early in the first quarter, Cooper Cloud connected with Sanders, who went untouched 25 yards for a score. After the touchdown, the Heritage Hall star made his way back to the training table, and that would be his last score of the day.

Cloud threw his second touchdown of the day, the second a 32-yard pass to Sterling Sheppard, to take a 14-0 lead in the closing moments of the second quarter.

Halfway through the third quarter, Cloud and Sheppard hooked up again for a 35-yard touchdown to take a 20-point lead. Two minutes later, Brent Gaddis rushed 27 yards for a score to extend the lead to 27-0.

A.J. Knowles tacked on another score in the final minutes of the third quarter to extend the Chargers’ advantage to 34-0.

Heritage Hall will take on the Spiro Bulldogs in the third round for a shot at the Class 3A semifinals.
