TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Junior quarterback Mark Ginther accounted for 183 yards of offense and scored Jenks' only touchdown as the Trojans downed archrival Tulsa Union 9-6.

Jenks -- ranked third in Class Six-A -- led 9-0 after one quarter but struggled offensively after that and had to withstand a late rally by the second-ranked Redskins.

Matt Hulse's 45-yard field goal put Jenks ahead 3-0 and Ginther followed with an 80-yard touchdown run to make it 9-0. Hulse missed the extra-point attempt.

Union missed two first-half field-goal attempts, from 46 and 25 yards. Jonathan Ameen's 22-yard punt return and a 31-yard pass from Brandon Rogers to Casey Ketchum set up the Redskins' only score, a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Harold Cox with 5:13 left in the game.

Union falls to 0-2 on the season.
