BANDON — Oakland's football season came to an end Friday night with a 16-12 loss to No. 6-seeded Bandon in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs.

The No. 11 Oakers finished 6-4 overall.

Oakland coach Ben Lane said the field conditions worsened as the game wore on.

"It started off OK, but after the first half it was complete slop (due to heavy rain)," he said. "It affected our offense, but (Bandon) played more physical up front."

The Oakers couldn't hold a 12-0 lead. Jayden Henry had a 1-yard TD run in the second quarter and Baker Brooksby added a 64-yard scoring run in the third quarter. Oakland failed on both of its two-point conversion attempts.

Brooksby, playing his final game in an Oakland uniform, finished with 152 yards rushing on 20 carries. Henry contributed 38 yards on nine attempts, while Cade Olds added 30 yards on seven rushes.

Olds led the defense with 13 tackles and one sack and Kaleb Oliver had 10 tackles and a sack. Silas Arscott made an interception.

The Oakers lose seven seniors: Brooksby, Marcus Carlson, Leland Good, Henry, Oliver, Jace Twite-Langdon and Jesse Parker.

"We have an excellent group of seniors are going to miss them," Lane said.

The Tigers (8-3) will travel to No. 3 Lakeview (9-1), a 59-6 winner over No. 14 Grant Union, for a quarterfinal game next weekend.
