  • Quarterback John Jacobs did his best imitation of a battering ram Thursday night, igniting Shawnee to a 42-10 thrashing of Tulsa Kelley in a key District 5A-3 contest.
    Jacobs, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound junior, rushed for 89 yards on 13 carries, including touchdown runs of 36, 2 and 13 yards. He also completed 13 of 18 passes for 250 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown strike to Chris Lester that gave Shawnee a 28-10 advantage heading into the fourth quarter.
    After Kelley took a 10-7 lead at the 6:35 mark of the second quarter on Josiah Siddiki’s 22-yard field goal, Jacobs set up his 2-yard TD run with passes of 48 and 23 yards to Lester. Jacobs’ 13-yard scoring run put Shawnee up 21-10 at halftime. That culminated a 45-yard drive set up by an interception.
    Shawnee also had a first-half blocked field goal.
    Lester’s 23-yard TD catch came on a third-and-22 situation on Shawnee’s initial second-half possession. Lester had four opening-half receptions.
    Dillion Dutton had scoring runs of 2 and 8 yards in the fourth quarter.
    Shawnee’s didn’t commit a turnover on the night while Kelley had just one, that coming on an interception.
    The Wolves, 5-2 overall, rushed for 180 yards and Kelley finished with 136. Kelley had 67 yards rushing at halftime.
    “I thought this was probably our best game — offensively, defensively, special teams — the whole package,” Shawnee head coach Billy Brown said. “We had no turnovers. That’s the big thing.
    “As a group, the whole team played well. Every aspect of the game went well for us.”
    Shawnee upped its district record to 3-1. Kelley fell to 5-2 overall and 3-1 in 5A-3.
    The Wolves will continue district play Friday, Oct. 25, versus visiting Durant.
