Posted

VERNON — After a lack-luster first half, Oakman dominated the final two quarters in a 40-13 road win over Lamar County in Vernon Friday night.

Oakman outscored the Bulldogs 26-0 in the second half to earn the win and keep pace in the Class 3A, Region 4 standings.

Christian Hubbard scored three touchdowns on the night for the Wildcats, rushing for two touchdowns and catching a touchdown pass. Both Cristian Lopez and Malachi Bridges added rushing and passing touchdowns and Derrick Hubbard caught a touchdown pass.

Oakman (4-3, 3-2) built a 14-0 lead in the opening quarter. Christian Hubbard scored from 1-yard out at the 5:09 mark of the first quarter. The Wildcats struck again with 9:10 mark of the second quarter. The two-point conversion put Oakman on top 14-0. Lamar County (1-6, 1-4) scored two touchdowns over the final five minutes of the second quarter to cut the Oakman lead to 14-13 at the half.

Coach Ryan Hall’s Wildcats took command in the third quarter as they picked up touchdowns at the 5:04 mark and in the final minute of the quarter to build a 27-13 lead.

Oakman added the final two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. The Wildcats scored with 5:48 remaining and again in the final minute.
