The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SPORTS - BY JA­COB UN­RUH AND ADAM KEMP, STAFF WRIT­ERS

Coach Bill Blanken­ship wasted no time mak­ing a state­ment with his new team. Owasso dom­i­nated Jenks on Fri­day, hand­ing the Tro­jans their worst loss since 2005.

One game into Bill Blanken­ship’s ten­ure at Owasso, the Rams made a state­ment.

Owasso routed Jenks 48-10 Fri­day night to open the sea­son, hand­ing the Tro­jans their worst loss since 2005.

“Per­fect storm kind of stuff,” Blanken­ship told the Tulsa World. “I’m sure, if we’re lucky enough, we will get to see them in the play­offs. But that’s kind of a mi­rage for your first game.”

Owasso’s new quar­ter­back Wille Kuehne, a move-in from Texas, threw for 278 yards and five touch­downs, three of which went to Tyrese Sis­son.

Ohio State com­mit Josh Proc­tor, who is No. 4 on The Ok­la­homan’s Su­per 30, also had a 99-yard in­ter­cep­tion re­turn for a touch­down in the second quar­ter that made it 34-10.

Blanken­ship, the for­mer University of Tulsa coach, led Tulsa Union to three state ti­tles be­fore jump­ing to col­lege. He returned to the high school level last sea­son and coached Fayetteville, Ark., to a state ti­tle.

Mill­wood wins city pre­view with shutout of John Mar­shall

Mill­wood coach Dar­win Franklin wanted to see how his de­fense would matchup with a po­tent John Mar­shall of­fense.

He wasn’t dis­ap­pointed. Mill­wood beat John Mar­shall 6-0 on Fri­day night to win the ACA City Pre­view.

“We came ready to play. Devonte (Lee) is a heck of a run­ning back and we wanted to see what we could do,” Franklin said.

“We gave them some dif­fer­ent looks to see how we could try and neu­tral­ize him.”

Se­nior re­ceiver Kit­takone Siri­som­bath caught a pass and sprinted up the field for a 40-yard gain to set up the game’s lone score in the second quar­ter as ju­nior run­ning back Isaiah Ma­jor ran it in from four yards out.

But it was the bat­tle be­tween the two de­fenses that was the story of the game.

“We were locked in,” Franklin said. “It wasn’t any mag­i­cal elixir. We swarm to the ball. It wasn’t a one per­son thing. It was a team ef­fort it was just hard-nosed de­fense and wher­ever the ball is we expect 11 guys in the fray.”

Mid­west City holds off late Musko­gee rally

After tak­ing a 26-0 lead, Mid­west City had to hold on as Musko­gee came storm­ing back Fri­day night.

Mid­west City got up early be­hind the play of quar­ter­back Pre­ston Col­bert, who threw for 201 yards and two touch­downs and ran for a third to give Mid­west City a 20-0 half­time lead.

“First half, we were click­ing along pretty good,” Mid­west City coach Dar­rell Hall said.

“We scored and we were able to move the ball and take ad­van­tage of things Musko­gee gave us.”

But Kaleel Smith returned a fum­ble 41 yards to give Musko­gee its first score in the third quar­ter.

“Mo­men­tum def­i­nitely swung their way after that,” Hall said.

“But it’s good to see our guys hang on and fight. They never stopped fight­ing.”

In the fourth quar­ter, Ja­cob Me­drano ran for two touch­downs in­clud­ing one with 24 sec­onds left.

But Mid­west City re­cov­ered the on­side kick, end­ing the game. Me­drano fin­ished with 175 yards pass­ing for Musko­gee.
