EDMOND, Oklahoma -- After putting up two scores in Yukon’s opener against Mustang, running back Terry Jones tried to outdo himself against the Edmond Santa Fe Wolves and led the Millers to a 39-19 win Thursday.

The Yukon (2-0) senior racked up 128 yards and five total touchdowns in the double-digit win over the Wolves.

Jones came out firing early for the Millers, scoring the games’ first two touchdowns – including returning the opening kick 82 yards for a score – to give Yukon a 14-0 lead.

Edmond Santa Fe (0-2) quarterback Ty Hensley responded with a touchdown pass in the second, but Jones and the Millers came out firing yet again.

On the opening drive of the second half, Jones capped off a long drive with a 20-yard touchdown run to give the Millers a 21-6 advantage.

The Wolves closed the gap with a seven-play, 63-yard touchdown drive, capped off with a seven-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Paul Bronson to sophomore Khari Harding. Edmond Santa Fe attempted the two-point conversion, but missed to trail 21-12.

After Edmond Santa Fe forced the punt, returner Brandon Reece fielded it on the run and returned it down the sidelines 35 yards for a score. But, Jones proved to be too much late.

Yukon strung together two long drives, both capped off by Jones touchdown runs – including going untouched for a 24-yard score – to take a 35-19 score and close the door.
