TULSA, Oklahoma – The Berryhill Chiefs (9-2, 6-1) last won a state title in 2004 and have a shot at another championship this year after scorching Checotah in round one. The Chiefs got great performances from the defense and Tyler Brown in a 26-0 win over the Wildcats.
Brown threw for a score to get the Chiefs on the board in the first quarter. Brown hit Adam Dolan for a 15-yard score in the first quarter to get the home crowd up on their feet. Later in the first quarter, Brown led his team down the field for another score. Senior running back Tyler Smith scored from five yards out and Berryhill never looked back.
Dolan finished the night with a trio of scores and 51 rushing yards. Penalties and ball-security were issues for Berryhill. The Chiefs lost three fumbles and racked up over 100 yards in penalties.
The Wildcats failed to score for the first time this season. Checotah came into the first round matchup averaging 30 points per game but only managed 102 total yards against Berryhill. Their season ends with an 8-3 record.
Berryhill’s only district loss this season came to 3A favorite Cascia Hall. The only way the Chiefs will get a shot at payback is if both teams make it to the state title game. Next Friday the Chiefs will play on the road at Blanchard.
