TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Jenks Trojans were all over Eisenhower from the opening gun and cruised to 57-7 win to advance the Class 6A semifinals.
On the Trojans (12-0) first drive, quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen hit a wide open Jacob Bertelli for a 35-yard touchdown to take a 7-0 lead.
After an Eisenhower (8-4) missed field goal, Alex Ross took a handoff and went 70 yards for a score to give the Trojans a 14-0 advantage. He finished the first quarter with 114 yards on nine carries.
The Trojans wasted no time getting on the board in the second quarter, Kollmorgen connected with Ross for a 13-yard touchdown pass to take a 21-0 lead. Ross’ roll continued on the Trojans’ next drive, going 30 yards for his second rushing touchdown of the game to extend the lead to 28 points.
The Eagles turned the ball over and Jenks capitalized on the field position. Running back Zack Langer punched it in from three yards out to make it five-touchdown lead.
With 53 seconds left in the first half, Kollmorgen threw his third touchdown pass to send the Trojans into halftime with a 42-0 lead. The senior signal caller finished the first half 10-12 for 155 yards and the three scores.
Ross would score once more, this one in the third quarter to push his rushing total past 200 yards and give Jenks a 50-0 lead.
The Eagles’ only score of the game was a 41-yard touchdown completion to Tae Douglas to close the gap to 50-7, but Jenks tacked on another score in the closing moments of the third quarter to secure the win.
The Trojans will move on to a semifinal matchup with the Owasso Rams, who held off the Westmoore Jaguars 16-6.
