Slay the Fe? The Fe slayed.

Santa Fe triumphed over Edmond Memorial in an impressive 8-touchdown game on Friday, Sept. 22. 

Santa Fe was dominant from the very beginning. After a touchdown just minutes into the first quarter, Santa Fe never gave up that momentum and drive. Santa Fe was a force of nature with a powerful offense scoring twice every quarter and a defense not allowing any points until the fourth quarter.

The first quarter was a great start both offensively and defensively. Santa Fe scored two touchdowns but earned 0 extra points, leaving them up 12 points to Memorial’s 0, thanks to great coverage by the Santa Fe defense. 12-0 is a great start to an Edlam game.

In the second quarter, Santa Fe extended their lead thanks to 2 touchdowns, both of which earned extra points thanks to the kicker, Kale Purvis. With an additional 14 points to our already impressive lead, the 1st half ended 26-0 in Santa Fe’s favor.

The third quarter looked eerily similar to the 2nd with 2 touchdowns and 2 earned extra points, adding 14 points and allowing 0 to the Memorial Offense. With a score of 40-0 going into the 4th, dreams of a shutout were on everyone’s mind.

The Santa Fe offense and kicker kept their impressive consistency in the fourth quarter by scoring two additional 7-point touchdowns. On the defensive side, our defense allowed the first Memorial touchdown, which earned an extra point off the kick, leaving the final score 54-7. 

A performance of this level the week before the big North-Santa Fe rivalry match on Friday, Sept. 29 is very reassuring.

Santa Fe currently sits at 2-1 going into this tough rivalry game against Edmond North. With the offensive consistency and defensive coverage shown in the first 3 games, as well as great kicks and coverage by our special teams, Santa Fe looks great against Edmond North, but it will be a hard-fought battle. 

Santa Fe vs. North will be hosted in Santa Fe stadium; tickets are $8 or you can buy a season pass for access to all home games for all sports this season. You can also stream future games remotely at krefsports.tv.
