Cornwell made plenty big plays of his own, throwing for 183 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for another 75 and a score. He added an element to the power run game as well, taking on tacklers with his 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame. And he managed the clock with near perfection.

Jones had four offensive series in the second half, each eating more than four minutes off the clock.

Tuttle (7-1, 3-1), which had scored at least 34 points in every game this season, totaled 272 yards, but only 22 on 10 second-half snaps.

Jones was anxious to show its toughness Friday night following a disappointing loss to No. 5 Blanchard last week.

“This was a big win for the team,” Cornwell said. “We were working all week, pounding and grinding. Our bodies were sore, but we came out in a physical game and felt the momentum and played as a team. This is a really great win for this program.”
