Another Big night for Littell.
09/19/2009
 

The Stillwater Pioneers started fast on offense and limited Sapulpa to just one touchdown on defense en route to a 34-15 victory Friday night in Sapulpa.

The Pioneers picked up their first win after opening the season with two tough home losses.

After gaining almost 600 yards in a 45-41 loss to Sand Springs last week, the Stillwater offense picked up right where it left off, scoring three touchdown in the first quarter for a 21-6 lead.

Stillwater running back David Pierson started the scoring on a 1-yard touchdown run on the Pioneers’ opening drive of the game.

Quarterback Jerame Littell then threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Corey Hassel for a 14-6 lead. The combination then clicked again late in the first period when Littell hit Hassel for 48 yards and a touchdown for a 21-6 lead.

“It was a great win for us,” Stillwater offensive coordinator Craig Church said. “We started fast on offense and played real well on defense and special teams. It was a great all-around game for us.”

Stillwater scored two more times in the second quarter.

Jesse Vester caught an 8-yard touchdown pass from Littell early in the period and the Stillwater special teams finished off the scoring later in the quarter when Hassel blocked a Sapulpa punt that Vester scooped up and ran in for a touchdown.

The only scoring in second half came in the form of two Sapulpa field goals.

“We lost our focus a little bit after halftime, I think we enjoyed the score a little too much at halftime,” Church said. “But we played much better than we had the past couple of weeks. Getting that first win was a big thing for us.”

Littell finished the night completing 19 of 31 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns.

His favorite target was Hassel, who caught seven passes for 98 yards and two touchdowns and added the blocked punt. Vester finished with three receptions for 56 yards.

Pierson led the Pioneers on the ground with 64 yards on 13 carries and had a touchdown. Andrew Menter added 44 yards on 14 carries.

Stillwater totaled 370 yards on the night while holding Sapulpa to 263, including just 105 passing yards. The Pioneers also recorded five sacks on the game.

“They (the team) were as locked in as I’ve seen a bunch yet,” Church said. “We came out and played with a lot of passion tonight. It was a lot of fun to watch. We took a pretty big step forward tonight.”

The Pioneers will face a big challenge next Friday, hosting top-ranked Tulsa Union at 7:30 p.m. at Pioneer Stadium.
