Despite loss, T-Wolves left their mark

STILLWATER — For the most part, the east-side’s domination of Class 6A football in this state has not been narrow. Norman North, after a wondrous and historic journey into Boone Pickens Stadium, experienced that first-hand Friday night.

Jenks, after watching arch-rival Union win the last four state championships, is back on top after topping the Timberwolves 55-20.

Beginning in 1996, only Jenks and Union have claimed state championships in Oklahoma’s largest class: 10 for the Trojans and seven for the Redskins.

By even getting to 20 points, the T-Wolves managed more offensively than any in-state team against the Trojans this season.

That they still lost by 35 points is a measure of Jenks’ domination.

For just a moment, North had its fans on their feet believing anything was possible again, scoring twice in the opening minutes of the second half, making it a 41-20 game on touchdowns tosses from Peyton Gavras to Jake Higginbotham and Payton Prince with all kinds of time remaining.

It was fun while it lasted, but Jenks answered with a 66-yard strike to Trey Michalczewski, reasserting control.

North finished its magical season the owner of a 12-2 record, a District 6A-3 title and one very long night in Stillwater.
