LAWTON, Oklahoma -- The Lawton Eisenhower Eagles (8-3) held on to a late, fourth-quarter lead to beat the Mustang Broncos (7-4) and move onto to the second round of playoffs.

The Eagles had 473 yards on 63 carries in their victory, continuing a perfect 11-0 record and on to face Jenks on the road next Friday.

Lawton Ike got on the board first, when quarterback Adrian McDonald found wide receiver Adrian Woodard for a 7-0 lead. Mustang answered back three minutes later when Bronco quarterback Brandon Taylor connected Jacob Strassle on an eight-yard pass to tie the game.

Taylor and his team took the lead with just over 40 seconds in the first quarter when he punched in a one-yard run.

McDonald tied it up at 14 when he ran in a 30-yard run for Ike. Teammate and running back Louis Durant put up seven more points on a 13-yard run, as the Eagles took a 21-14 lead.

While both teams scored again, Lawton Eisenhower wouldn’t again relinquish the lead.

Durant scored another second-quarter touchdown as the Broncos fell behind by 14 points. Mustang’s David Glidden tried to rally his team back on a three-yard pass. He was obviously in pain, limping off the field and to the sidelines to get checked out by trainers.

The Eagles still led 28-20 at half.

Lawton Ike opened the second half of the game with a three-yard run by Durant to pull ahead 35-20. The Eagles fumbled on their own 10-yard line, allowing the Broncos to score, narrowing the margin to seven points.

Durant answered back with a 91-yard run to the Mustang two-yard line, finishing it up on the next play to take a 42-28 lead. Mustang fumbled on their own 44-yard line, as the Eagles took the opportunity to score on a 47-yard pass, pulling ahead 42-34 to advance to the second round.

Lawton Eisenhower will travel to Jenks (11-0) to face the Trojans next Friday.
