MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma – It only took star running back Zach Langer two rushes to crack the 100-yard rushing mark Friday night. The Jenks Trojans continued to roll through district play after a 62-14 road win over the Muskogee Roughers.
The Trojans didn’t waste any time against the Roughers. Calip Braden took the opening kickoff 96-yards for a touchdown. Jenks led 7-0 just 15 seconds into the game.
The Trojans forced a three-and-out and Langer dashed 61 yards into the endzone on Jenks’ first offensive play of the night. Jenks built a 14-point lead in just 2:01.
Muskogee struggled to move the football against the Trojans. They also hurt themselves on special teams. After an Alex Ross touchdown run gave Jenks a 21-0 cushion, the Roughers fumbled the ensuing kickoff. Jenks recovered and capitalized on the Muskogee mistake when senior quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen faked out the defense with a play-action fake and out-raced the Roughers to the pylon.
Jenks led 28-0 before the whistle blew on the first quarter and cruised to its sixth win of the season.
Jenks finally allowed points in district competition. The Trojans have outscored their opponents 179-14 in three district games. The Trojans have only allowed 35 points all season.
Muskogee’s rough October continued after surrendering an early lead to Jenks. A week ago, the Roughers gave up 70 points to the Broken Arrow Tigers on the road.
Jenks (6-0/3-0) beat Muskogee at home 58-15 a season ago. The Trojans haven’t even had a close call against the Roughers since a 28-26 win back in 2005. They will put their perfect record on the line against Sapulpa at home next weekend.
Muskogee (3-3/1-2) will look to snap a two-game losing streak when they visit Shawnee.
