Class 6A capsule: Jenks vs. Union
By Ryan Aber
Jenks (13-0) vs. Tulsa Union (12-1)
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Where: Chapman Stadium, Tulsa
Jenks (W, Bixby; W, Tulsa Union; W, Owasso; W, Claremore; W, Sapulpa; W, Broken Arrow; W, Tulsa Memorial; W, Bartlesville; W, Muskogee; W, Sand Springs; W, Yukon; W, Edmond Memorial; W, Southmoore)
Why the Trojans can win: First, they beat Union 27-25 in the regular-season meeting. Second, Jenks’ offensive line has been mostly dominant in the playoffs, clearing the way for junior running back Zack Langer.
Tulsa Union (W, Broken Arrow; L, Jenks; W, Muskogee; W, Stillwater; W, Owasso; W, Yukon; W, Choctaw; W, Ponca City; W, U.S. Grant; W, Enid; W, Claremore; W, Lawton; W, Broken Arrow)
Why the Redskins can win: Because it’s not unprecedented for the winner of the regular-season game to lose the finals. Union struggled last week against Broken Arrow, going into the locker room trailing before coming back in the second half. The last time that happened, though, when the Redskins opened the playoffs with a lackluster performance against Claremore, the Redskins just got fired up and blew away a pretty good Lawton team.
