TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Union Redskins captured their second-straight Class 6A championship in dominating fashion with a 52-19 victory over arch-rival Jenks. The Redskins scored two touchdowns in less than three minutes to open the game and never looked back. Deonte Morris hauled in a 13-yard Chase Boyce touchdown pass to put the icing on the game with 10:44 left in the fourth quarter.

On the opening kickoff Union's Jacob Rice fielded the ball, and then lateraled it to Thomas Roberson, who took it 76 yards for a touchdown.

Jenks quarterback Sawyer Kollmorgen fumbled a snap on the Trojans second play from scrimmage. Union's Steven Stadler recovered the ball at Jenks' 11 yard line.

Boyce took advantage of the short field, finding the end zone on a 7-yard score to put the Redskins up 14-0. Boyce went right back at it on the ‘Skins next series, scoring on a 43-yard touchdown run.

Union tailback Colton Dost, a former Jenks player, scored on a 21-yard touchdown run with 1:07 remaining in the second quarter to give the Redskins a 32-0 lead. Dost punished his former team again in the fourth on a 6-yard scamper to put the Redskins up 52-19.

Zack Langer put Jenks on the board with a 19-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. But Union's Kale Pearson answered right back with a 90-yard kickoff return for a score to make in 39-7 Redskins.

Jenks handed Union its only loss of the season, 27-25 in Week 2. The Redskins defeated the Trojans 34-20 in the 2008 championship game.
