Glenpool 17, Bixby 14

It looked like Bixby's version of the Music City Miracle _ with one catch. It was called back.

On Friday night, Glenpool's Kyle Green had just kicked a 26-yard field goal with five seconds left to put the Warriors up 17-14.

With time for one play after the kickoff, Bixby quarterback Mark Steenhoek threw a long pass that A.J. Maxey hauled in at the Glenpool 25-yard line. Being spun around by two defenders, Maxey lateraled to teammate James Jackson who carried the ball for two yards before lateraling to lineman Joey Green. Green then tossed the ball back to Spartan tailback Jeromie Tucker, who sprinted into the end zone untouched.

But Glenpool had 12 men on the field, an illegal participation penalty that Bixby could not decline. After a 5-minute discussion, officials returned the ball to the line of scrimmage then marked off a 15-yard penalty to the Glenpool 45.

Because a game can't end on a defensive penalty, Bixby got one more chance. This time, Steenhoek connected with Rhino Goodner on a pass into the end zone, but this pass too was doomed. Steenhoek was two yards past the line of scrimmage when he threw the ball, and the game ended.
