JENKS, Okla. — Jenks returned home Friday and came up short of toppling defending 6AII champs Bixby.

The Spartans topped the Trojans 23-15 at Allan Trimble Stadium, extending Bixby's winning streak over Jenks to three.

Bixby pulled ahead early and held off the Trojans down the stretch to improve to 2-0 this season. Jenks falls to 1-1.

The Trojans came into the game off of a 20-14 overtime win in Texas over Mansfield Summit.

The Spartans came in off a dominating 69-14 win over Mansfield Timberview.

Both teams fell somewhat back to Earth on Friday -- Bixby's offense proving to be too much for the Jenks offense to keep up with despite quality defensive play.
