Tipton rolls into finals

Chandler’s pick-6 sparks Tigers past Pond Creek, 50-28

WEATHERFORD — Seeing four Pond Creek-Hunter players in front of him, Lane Chandler didn’t think there was a chance he could go from end zone to end zone.

But with a nifty spin move following his interception on an overthrown ball, Chandler wove his way down the field and picked up some timely blocks down the sideline to spring him 96 yards for a game-changing pick-6 in Tipton’s win.

“We have some savvy players. As soon as they saw me with the ball, it’s offense mode. Go block, get down the field and make the best out of what we have,” Chandler said. “Defensive touchdowns are rare. You only get a couple a year, and since we struggled tackling early in the game, that pick really gave us momentum. It was big for us defensively.”
