No. 1 Bluejays roll

Late TD lifts Union
Justin Silmon's 5-yard run with 5:47 left in the game gave Class 6A No. 1 Tulsa Union a 14-7 victory over No. 3 Jenks in the Backyard Bowl.
The game-winning TD followed a Jenks fumble at the 5. The Trojans had fumbled inside the Union 10 earlier in the fourth quarter.
The only other scoring came in the first quarter. Trey'Vonne Barr'e went around the left side for 45 yards to give Jenks a 7-0 lead, but it lasted only a few seconds as Khalid Kornegay returned the next kickoff 85 yards for a TD.
Female kicker comes through for Tecumseh
Jennifer Goethe made believers of the Tecumseh coaching staff this week, and out of fans of the Savages on Friday night.
Goethe's 22-yard field goal in overtime gave Tecumseh a 16-13 victory over Noble. Her kick came just two days after she joined the team.
Coach Greg George said some of his players called him this week after seeing Goethe, a sophomore soccer player, working out. “They said, ‘Coach, you've got to see this girl kick,'” George said. “She's in my second-hour history class, so I told her to come out and give it a try.”
Goethe took him up on the offer. “We stopped practice, put the ball down on extra points, let her go at it,” George said. “We backed her up five yards, she hit those. We backed her up a little more, she hit those.”
Goethe converted one extra point and had one blocked before her game-winner, which resulted in the coaches awarding her a game ball.
Hennessey beats CHA
Top-ranked Hennessey, seeking its third straight Class 2A title, beat Christian Heritage 36-7 behind the play of running back Levi Hill.

Cashion tops Okeene
Ty Reasnor threw two touchdown passes and ran for a third, helping lead Class A No. 7 Cashion past No. 8 Okeene 27-20.

Nault leads Kingfisher
Landon Nault ran for 254 yards and two touchdowns on just nine carries, and returned a punt 59 yards for a score as Class 3A No. 1 Kingfisher beat Guymon 70-0.
Nault's punt return was the first score of the game and began a 30-point first quarter that included a 65-yard punt return for a TD by Nick Smith. Nault later scored on runs of 56 and 20 yards.
Jake Blair caught a 10-yard TD pass and scored on an 85-yard punt return.
