North’s hopes for title get Barr’e-d by half-time

(Continued)

STILLWATER —

North was plagued by near-misses all night long. From passes just over the outstretched hands of Timberwolves receivers or Jenks players who just slipped out of the T-Wolves’ reach, North couldn’t quite finish plays. Quarterback Peyton Gavras threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns, but a pair of overthrown passes and one play where a receiver slipped, led to three of the five Jenks interceptions on the night.

Despite the inflated final score, North looked more than capable of playing with Jenks for long stretches of time. The T-Wolves recovered a Jenks fumble on the first possession of the game, but were unable to score. After the teams traded stops, Jenks began to get going behind Barr’e, and scored five touchdowns to take a big lead early and a 41-7 lead into halftime.

“We got a couple turnovers early, but we weren’t able to convert,” Standley said. “I saw us out there making plays, but they played well. It was a back and forth game.”

The win continued the Jenks and Tulsa Union championship streak. One of the two east-side behemoths has won every Class 6A title since 1995, when Midwest City won. North became the first west-side school since Mustang in 2005 to advance to the title game.
