Wagoner 23-Clinton 0

The Wagoner Bulldogs made their third title game appearance in seven years and its second in a row under coach Dale Condict Friday night at Boone Pickens Stadium. Last season the Bulldogs lost in the title game to the Oklahoma City Douglass Trojans. Friday night they faced the tradition rich Clinton Red Tornadoes, whom were making their first title game appearance since 2007.

Wagoners only loss of the season came to a Catoosa team that had a larger, more physical line. Coming into the game Friday night it looked like Clinton was going to be much of the same.

But it was the Bulldogs line that was playing larger and more physical on both sides of the ball. Wagoner ran for three touchdowns on the ground and held the Red Tornadoes scoreless for the first time this season. This is Wagoner's first ever State Football Championship.
