Jenks loses big to Bixby in home opener

The transition from Week Zero to Week One was tough for Jenks.

After defeating Mansfield-Legacy 38-0 in their season opener, the Trojans (1-1) were throttled 57-7 by Class 6A-II Bixby Friday.

The Spartans (2-0) set the tone early and never looked back.

Bixby scored three touchdowns in the first quarter, four in the second, and two in the third for its 57 points.

Jenks got on the scoreboard for the first time late in the third period on a two-yard run from Griffin Forbes.

Despite the large discrepancy in scoring, the Trojans put up 311 total yards of offense to Bixby’s 445. The Spartans managed to stifle the Jenks run game, allowing just 82 rushing yards.

Despite throwing five interceptions, quarterback Stephen Kittleman was 20-for-33 passing with 229 yards.

Bo Estes led the Trojans in receiving catching three passes for 62 yards. Griffin Forbes led the team in rushing with 34 yards on eight attempts.

Jenks will be on the road next Friday facing long-time foe Union at Tuttle Stadium.
