Five members of the Frontier Valley Conference spent their opening weekend in Texas, taking on the five high schools of the Mansfield School District. Jenks, Broken Arrow and Bixby came away with wins, while Sand Springs and Union took losses, marking the second year with another Oklahoma victory.

The Sandites haven’t won an opening weekend game since 2015 after beginning a recent tradition of battling out-of-state powerhouses to start the season. Last year they hosted Mansfield Summit and fell 41-28.

The Jaguars pummeled their visitors in the first half, jumping out to a 27-0 lead with 327 yard of total offense, while holding the Sandites to only 86. Sand Springs scored its lone touchdown in the third quarter, and the Jags scored fourteen points before a scoreless fourth stanza.

The game pitted three first-year quarterbacks, each trying to fill the shoes of college-bound stars. Junior Jaguar Kainen McKinney went 14-18-219-1 with two touchdowns, while Sand Springs split time between two players.

Senior Braden Foster was given the start for Sand Springs, but wasn’t named the starter for the season. He went 7-15-46-2 and was replaced at halftime by sophomore Ty Pennington, who went 6-14-45-0 for the only Sandite touchdown.

Mansfield forced a turnover on downs on the Sandites’ first possession, and McKinney threw a 28-yard pass to Jaelon Travis to cap an eight-play 48 yard drive. Sand Springs responded by marching all the way to the Jaguar four-yard line before turning the ball over once again.

Travis had another successful drive with a 6-yard scoring pass to Hal Presley, then the Jaguars got fancy with an onside kick and a trick play for yet another score. McKinney tossed a lateral to Presley who hoofed it downfield to Travis for the 21-0 lead.

David Cottrell picked off Foster two plays later, setting up a nine-play 49-yard drive and a 2-yard keeper. This time Koby Russel missed the PAT, but he was 6-of-7 for the night.

Sand Springs found the red zone once again, but Foster was picked off by Xavier Toliver. Bryson Chase snagged the first Sandite interception of the season shortly before halftime.

The home team kicked off the second half with a 6-yard touchdown run from McKinney. The teams traded punts till Mansfield got the ball back for an 8-yard scoring run by Calvion Porter. Russel’s kick gave the Jaguars their final point of the night and a 41-0 lead.

The Sandites averted the shutout on their final possession of the third quarter, marching 70 yards in six plays, thanks to a 50-yard run from Tyree Atkinson. Pennington connected with Keaton Campbell from five yards out with seven seconds left in the quarter.

Presley ended with 120 yards on six receptions for Mansfield, and Jaydon Lott was the leading rusher with nine carries for 96 yards. Zach Heinen handled kicking and punting duties for the Sandites and made his first varsity PAT with ease. Senior captain Jerret Haley led the Sandite defense with ten tackles and two pass breakups.

Sand Springs will take a bye week before hosting Putnam City Friday the 13th at 7:00 p.m. Summit will travel to Seguin High School (0-1) Thursday in Arlington.
