Blocked punt. Score.
Fourth down. Score.
That pretty well sums up how Tonkawa beat Newkirk Thursday night in the latest edition of Kay County Bedlam.
Senior tailback Tristan Burdick ran for 231 yards on just 15 carries and scored l four touchdowns, one from 70 yards away.
Junior Jake Randall caught the lone touchdown pass (32 yards) of the evening from freshman quarterback Ryan Morgan on fourth down with a brilliant pass and catch. Randall also intercepted three Tiger passes, setting up one touchdown and running back another 86 yards for, yes, you guessed it, a touchdown.
And to cap it all off as the third quarter drew to a close, junior Jake Morgan blocked a Newkirk punt at their own 20, picked it up and ran it 11 yards for the final touchdown of the evening.
Placekicker Carson Robinson was perfect on all seven conversion kicks.
That put the Bucs up 49-0.
The Tigers would score two late touchdowns. Junior Linebacker Noah
Junior Linebacker Noah Campbell helped lead a stellar defensive showing by the Bucs with 12 tackles. Jake Morgan had 10 and Clay Massey 9.
Defenders held Newkirk to a net 100 yards rushing and 60 yards passing. And half of that came in the final quarter against Tonkawa’s second unit.
