— David Cornwell and Randal Case haven't quite developed the quarterback-receiver chemistry that Jones has had with its top two producers the last few years, but they're getting close.

Cornwell, the Longhorns' junior quarterback, and Case connected for a pair of touchdowns Friday night, and Case ran for another as Jones held on for a 26-25 win at Oklahoma Christian School.

Even with the two pairing up the way they did, it took a couple of late missed kicks to keep OCS from pulling off the comeback.

Jones blocked an OCS point-after kick with 4:15 left that would've tied it.

Then the Saints drove to the 20 in the final minute before attempting a 37-yard field goal that would've given the Saints the lead.

The kick had plenty of distance but was pushed just left to give Jones the win.

“You just kind of hold your breath,” Jones coach Dave Martin said of the final kick. “I saw it going left, but you never know since they were kicking from the right hash.”

OCS led 19-18 early in the third when Cornwell picked apart the Saints' defense on a drive, capping it with a 22-yard, near perfectly placed touchdown pass to Case.

Cornwell, who moved to Jones after last season and hadn't played varsity football anywhere before this year, was 3 of 4 on the drive, including another 24-yard completion to Case.
