OKLAHOMA CITY – Putnam City West upset top-ranked Edmond Santa Fe 60-56 Tuesday, handing the Wolves their first loss to a 6A foe this season.

PC West would lead by as much as 11 with less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter.
With less than two minutes left it was 55-46 PC West but the Patriots were called for a foul and then a technical foul to send Santa Fe to the free throw line four times. A.J. Anderson hit three out of four. Santa Fe got the ball as well and Anderson then hit a three with 1:52 remaining to cut the lead to 55-52.
Santa Fe would tie it all up at 56 and would try to hold for the last shot. But Tyler Neal would get a steal he was fouled and hit both free throws.
Santa Fe had plenty of time to tie it but couldn't hit the shot. Santa Fe would tie with .5 seconds left and then Fields hit two more free throws of his own.
Neal finished with 25 and Fields finished with 19 for 44 of the teams 60 points.
