Bixby, Broken Arrow, Champs In Oklahoma

Pedro Rivera deals with attention from Cooper Gibson.

Last weekend, Bixby High School, after reaching the Rugby Oklahoma boys HS finals for six straight years, ended its streak of being runner-up by defeating Jenks in a thriller.

Jenks was led by flyhalf Cooper Gibson and center Jacob Shelly, while their opposite numbers for Bixby, Drake Poth and Brody Sartin, were also excellent. Flanker Pedro Riversa had a massive impact for Bixby, as well.

Bixby stormed back with 14 minutes left to take a 17-14 lead, with Sartin scoring a key try late in the game. Poth's goalkikcing was huge, too, as he converted both Bixby tries and added a penalty.

Bixby held on


Meanwhile, the Bixby girls team looked to garner the Boys-Girls double, but couldn't quite do it as Broken Arrow, the 2018 NIT D2 champions, shut out Bixby 62-0. Under coach Quan Hoang, Broken Arrow has a very strong outfit this year.
