Trojans raise their game to another level in semifinals against Jaguars

YUKON — Westmoore thought it was ready. After playing No. 1 Jenks more than a month ago, the Jaguars said they knew was to expect from the 10-time state champion.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars, the team they faced in the regular season didn’t show up to the 6A semifinals Friday. This Trojans squad came out swinging from the opening whistle and the Jags had no answer as they lost 46-14 at Miller Stadium in Yukon.

“It was tough,” senior Ty Watkins said. “We thought we could do some things out there and it just didn’t go our way. They were playing fast. Playing like they had something to prove, honestly. Kind of shocked us I think. I don’t think we were prepared for it.”

Westmoore (10-3) was the final team from the west side that could have prevented Jenks or Union from winning another state title. However, just like the past 17 years, the east side outgunned the teams from the west in the games that matter.

“They beat us fair and square,” Jaguar defensive back Kiante Channel said. “We had our second chances and they beat us.

Jenks (13-0) and Union (11-2) will meet for the ninth time in the 6A state title game Thursday at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater. The series is split 4-4.

“This is great,” Jenks safety Steven Parker said. “It’s great to be back here. We’ve had a great season so far. The biggest factor was keeping our head on our shoulders and not getting the big heard. Keep going and keep chipping away.”

The Trojans struck first with a Parker 36-yard touchdown pass from Cooper Nunley. Parker broke four tackles as he raced into the end zone.

It was the first of two touchdown grabs on the night for Parker.

Nunley added two more touchdown passes in the first quarter to go up 19-0. The third was the result of a Bryson Lee fumble at the Jags’ 24-yard line.
