Wellsville had scored four times before Oakes broke through for Osawatomie with a 1-yard run.

The Eagles took the opening kickoff and quickly scored on a 64-yard touchdown run.

Osawatomie tried to respond but after a nice catch and run, Austin Chisam was hit from behind and fumbled. The ball was picked up by Wellsville and returned 40 yards for a touchdown.

The Eagles added two more scores on runs of 40 and 41 yards.

The Trojans moved the ball in the second quarter to the Eagles one-yard line where Oakes plunged through for a score. Jones then connected with Dustin Doherty for the conversion.

In the third quarter, Jones hit Chisam for a six-yard touchdown pass and then Oakes scored on a 62-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Wellsville scored twice late in the fourth.
