The No. 2 Tro­jans (6-1, 3-1) have their fi­nal reg­u­lar sea­son home game next Fri­day against Nor­man. The Bull­dogs fall to 1-6 over­all and re­main win­less in dis­trict play at 0-4.

Jenks had sev­eral solid ef­forts on ei­ther side of the ball. Run­ning back Ja­cob Shelley fin­ished with a game-high 137 yards on 12 car­ries and had one touch­down.

Fel­low run­ning back Dreyson Wat­ters gained 79 yards on 12 car­ries and had one TD. Quar­ter­back Ian Cor­win passed for 185 yards and a pair of touch­down tosses.

The Tro­jans held Ed­mond to 113 yards of to­tal of­fense and six first downs.

Jenks got off to a bit of a slow start, but fi­nally got rolling with a surge late in the first half.

it was down 21-0, had a scor­ing threat with just over seven min­utes left, but it ended with Grant Yates' in­ter­cep­tion near the goal line. Yates' big play will make it a tastier Satur­day for the Chiefs.

“We get sprin­kles on our donuts from (as­sis­tant) Coach (Clay) Wyse for shutouts when we're watch­ing film in the (Satur­day) morn­ing,” Rice said. “We just get donuts for wins and noth­ing for losses.”

The Chiefs' Satur­day morn­ings have been filled with donuts this year. They im­proved to 7-0 over­all and 4-0 in 3A-4 while Cas­cia fell to 5-2 and 3-1.

The Chiefs, who played Cas­cia for the first time since 2011, had lost six in a row against the Com­man­dos, with three of those shutouts, in­clud­ing 21-0 in the 2009 state fi­nal and 28-0 in 2010. For Harper, it was his first win over Cas­cia in six tries.

“It's a won­der­ful feel­ing,” Harper said.

Ber­ry­hill's last previous win over Cas­cia was in a dis­trict show­down en route to a state ti­tle in 2004.

“I grew up watch­ing Ber­ry­hill play against Cas­cia and I just wanted to be in this po­si­tion now and get a win,” Rice said. “We had a lot of good en­ergy in sum­mer work­outs, we knew we could have a spe­cial year and that's what we're do­ing right now. This win over Cas­cia was a long time com­ing and we're re­ally ex­cited about it.”
