Roughers get Jenks again

Stout-less offense jells in romp over Norman North

NORMAN — For a linebacker, Jarryd Horn isn’t too bad of a tailback.

With Dre Stout sidelined with a sprained left ankle and knee, Horn filled his spot and the 6-foot-1, 225-pound senior responded with 114 yards rushing on 13 carries and four touchdowns as the Muskogee Roughers rambled past the Norman North Timberwolves 38-10 in Class 6A quarterfinal playoff action at Harve Collins Field Saturday night.

Muskogee (10-2) plays the Jenks Trojans (11-1) in the semifinals either on Friday or Saturday at Broken Arrow or Tahlequah. That will be determined today.

Jenks, which beat Muskogee 28-3 earlier this season, knocked off Lawton 29-12 Saturday after trailing 12-0 at halftime in the other quarterfinal.

In the other semifinal, Owasso (10-2) plays Enid (8-4). Owasso defeated Westmoore 31-19 Saturday and Enid crushed 2005 semifinalist Mustang 55-7 Friday.

Coming into the game, Horn had a mere 11 yards rushing and two touchdowns on offense at fullback.

While Stout was at the game in street clothes, Horn scored on runs of 34, 35, 7 and 1 yards. The two long ones came in the first half.

“The linemen just opened up the holes and I ran,” Horn said. “The line had the 114 yards rushing. I didn’t. I ran behind Jeffrey Thompson, Braxton Owens, Robert Thomas and Colton Archer. The holes they made were as big as they could be.”

Quarterback Rell Lewis showed signs of his old self, running 25 yards for a touchdowns with 9:07 left in the game. He bruised his shoulder on the TD but is expected to be ready for the rematch against Jenks. John Crank kicked a 30-yard field goal as time ran out in the first half to account for Muskogee’s other points.

“We knew we were the better football team,” MHS coach Matt Hennesy said. “They had a big win last week (against Norman). We knew we had to deflate them early.”

The Roughers, ranked No. 6 in the final regular season Associated Press poll, led 17-3 at halftime.
