Metro Christian too much for Keys Cougars

— TULSA – Matt Woolslayer passed for 233 yards and ran for 101 more as the fifth-ranked team in Class 5A, Metro Christian, pulverized Keys, 42-14, at Patriot Stadium on Friday night.

“Hats off to them; they’re really good,” Keys coach Gary Willis said of Metro Christian, which amassed 363 yards of total offense. “They do the little things right, and they’re a good football team.”

Metro Christian improved to 10-2 and advanced to the Class 3A quarterfinals where it’ll take on Seminole, which beat Plainview, 52-14. Keys’ season ends at 7-4.

Woolslayer put the Patriots in front early with a 2-yard run midway through the first quarter. Twenty-one seconds later, following a Keys turnover, Woolslayer found Jake Koenig for a 23-yard touchdown pass to put the Patriots up 14-0.

Woolslayer, who eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark on 17 carries, added two more scoring runs (four yards and three yards) in the second quarter to give Metro Christian a 28-0 edge at halftime.

“You can win a lot of games when your quarterback is playing as well as he is,” Metro Christian coach Jared McCoy said.

Early in the third quarter, Woolslayer tossed his second TD pass of the night, a 48-yarder to Danny Burke.

Metro Christian led 35-0 before Keys got its first score on Trevor Eubanks’ 53-yard run with 7:30 left in the third period.

But Keys wouldn’t get any closer.

Burke and Woolslayer, who completed 18 of 23 passes, connected again in the fourth quarter on a 21-yard scoring strike. Burke caught five passes for 82 yards.

After both rushing for more than 100 yards last week, Keys’ Cody Cole and Eubanks both struggled to generate any momentum in the ground game. Cole finished with 87 yards on 18 carries and Eubanks had 103 yards on 13 rushes.

Eubanks added a 4-yard score with 1:14 left in the game.
