Keys, Okla. 34, Lincoln 16
Playing its first game on newly-installed artificial turf, Lincoln's spread offense was severely handicapped by injuries to their quarterbacking corps.
Starter Caleb Lloyd suffered an injury on his throwing hand early and backup quarterback Sterling Morphis injured his hand on the field with the Wolves' defense.
"We ran into a problem when Caleb hurt his hand in the first quarter. Our backup quarterback hurt his hand playing defense. We had nobody who could throw it," said Lincoln coach Don Harrison.
Keys led 22-0 at halftime. The only consolation for Wolves' fans was a halftime dedication ceremony to celebrate the new turf.
Despite the injury Lloyd played linebacker in the second half and Lincoln (1-1) looked poised to hold after stuffing a pair of runs, but on third-and-17 Alden Terrell ran for 31 yards. Terrell capped a six play, 71-yard drive with a 23-yard touchdown run to push Keys' lead out to 28-0.
Playing hurt, Lloyd grittily engineered an 83-yard scoring march for Lincoln. He converted a third down with a 10-yard rush and completed a deep pass to Lyndon Miller for 48 yards. The Cougars were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct on Jacob Anderson's run moving the ball to the five. From there, Lloyd hit Braden Umberson with a touchdown pass to score the Wolves' first touchdown on their new turf. Umberson ran in the 2-point conversion.
