Match 14: Oklahoma 21, North Carolina State 10

With both squads coming off losses in their first matches of the day, neither Oklahoma nor North Carolina State could  afford a second straight loss. Oklahoma picked up a key victory thanks to a late score to beat N.C. State, 14-10.

Bobby Impson opened the scoring late in the first half by giving Oklahoma a 7-0 lead after a try and a conversion, but N.C. State’s Brandon Mosiman made sure the Wolfpack would put a dent on the board before halftime. A missed conversion kept the Sooners on top at the break. Midway through the second half N.C. State’s Dylan Martin notched a try to give the Wolfpack a 10-7 lead, but Impson put the Sooners back on top with a long try and a successful conversion in the final minutes. After the whistle N.C. State looked to have a scoring opportunity, but Oklahoma returned a turnover for a try to cap the game at 21-10 after a successful conversion.

Oklahoma moves on to play Texas in Match 22 at 6:21 p.m. The winner of that match-up will advance to the championship round on Sunday. The loser will move to the Challenger rounds. N.C. State will play Arizona at 6:00 p.m. The Wildcats have two dominating victories today with blowout wins against Oklahoma and Texas.
