OWASSO - Trey'Vonne Barr'e looked healthy and picked up the slack for his injured teammates in a 20-7 victory for No. 4 Jenks Friday night over No. 5 Owasso in Class 6A action.
Coming into the game with questions about an injured knee, Barr'e, who didn't start, rushed for 136 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries.
"We got good news on Trey'Vonne's knee - he's still really sore, and we got good news on Braden Calip, who is still really sore with his shoulder," said Jenks coach Allan Trimble. "It was running back by committee tonight."
Barr'e, Calip, Darwin Thompson, and Brett Tye led a rushing attack that gained 224 yards on 59 carries.
With standout receivers Jordan Smallwood and Trey Michalczewski out with injuries, Jenks didn't attempt a pass until less than 10 minutes remained in the second quarter.
"We've got a lot of guys hurt, but I thought we did a heck of a job considering what we were up against," Trimble said. "We did what we did best. We got behind our offensive line and played pretty good defense."
Jenks (1-2) extended a 10-7 halftime lead in the fourth quarter behind a 9-yard touchdown run by Barr'e and a 25-yard field goal by Daniel Donley to put Owasso (0-2) away.
The Trojans, who avoided their first 0-3 start since 1968, had opened the scoring on their first possession of the game on a 32-yard field goal by Donley, which resulted from a drive from their own 12-yard line that featured no pass attempts.
Trickery set up a 10-0 lead as a fake 38-yard field goal attempt by Donley on fourth-and-12 from the 21-yard line was turned into a 17-yard run and a first down by holder Austin Casillas. Barr'e scored on a 4-yard run on the next play with 8:25 left in the second quarter.
A 52-yard punt return by Tyler Lindsey and a 35-yard diving catch by Cole Neph from Jaylen Lowe down to the 2-yard line on consecutive plays set up a 3-yard run by Lowe with 1:09 left in the first half to narrow the Jenks lead to 10-7.
Jenks held Owasso to just 28 yards rushing on 17 attempts.
