The Trojans' victory on Tuesday night avenged a 2-1 loss in overtime to Edmond North to open the season.

“I think the girls have been working all year to get back to this game and play this team, and take care of some unfinished business,” Jenks coach Kalyn Reinhardt said.

Anderson said the Trojans deserved to win.

“They played the better brand of soccer today,” she said.

After a scoreless first half, the Trojans finally broke through early in the second half. Marlo Zoller scored off a rebound of Edmond North goal keeper's Genevieve Simmons' blocked shot.

The Trojans increased their lead 2-0 on a goal by Lizzie Keester off an assist from Bailey Strong. The 2-0 lead was more than enough for the Jenks defense.

“Jenks did a fine job at limiting our chances,” Anderson said. “They controlled the play physically. They controlled the midfield and ultimately I think that was probably the determining factor.”

Jenks, 15-1, last won the state championship in 2009. Edmond North finished the season 13-3.
