Passing game lifts Allen to win over OCA

Allen —      Oklahoma Christian Academy was geared up to stop Allen’s rushing attack, led by Dalton James.

     What OCA didn’t expect was an effective passing game from quarterback Justin Deaton and two long touchdown receptions by James as the Mustangs rolled to a 46-12 Class B-2 football win Friday night.

     Deaton was 7-of-14 passing for 247 yards and three touchdowns, two of which went for 74 and 44 yards to James and another which connected with Colten Browning for 21 yards. James, who finished with 56 yards on 21 carries, ended up with three catches on the night for 121 yards.

     James also had a 5-yard TD run to finish with three touchdowns in the game.

“We threw the ball better this week. They stacked it up to stop Dalton (on the run),” said Allen head coach Kenny Deaton. “It was a good win for us and an emotional week, but we responded well and played well.”

     The emotional week came as a result of former Allen classmate Matt McCarn tragically losing his life in an automobile accident.

     Browning had two touchdowns in the game — one off the pass from Justin Deaton, and the other off a 24-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Preston Brown also had a 2-yard scoring run.

     Deaton, though he didn’t score a touchdown, ran for four 2-point conversions on the night and Brown had the other.

     The Mustangs took an 8-0 lead with 6:27 to go in the first quarter on a 74-yard bomb from Justin Deaton to James, followed by Deaton’s first conversion run of the night.

     After OCA cut the deficit to 8-6 later in the first quarter, Allen picked up two late quick scores in the second quarter. The first came with 3:20 to go before the half on Deaton’s 44-yard connection with James and Brown’s 2-yard run with 31 seconds remaining before the break. James had conversion runs after both scores as the Mustangs led 24-6 at halftime.

     OCA pulled within 24-12 early in the fourth, but Deaton’s scoring pass to Browning and Deaton’s fourth conversion run made it 32-12 with 4:22 left in the third.

The Mustangs received James’ 5-yard TD run with 7:01 remaining and Browning’s 24-yard scoring scamper with 5:22 to go to round out the scoring. Brown scored off a conversion after James’ touchdown. The conversion run after Browning’s TD failed.

 Allen, 2-1 overall and 2-0 in the district, is at home Friday night against Central Marlow.
