After relatively disappointing 2017 seasons, both Jenks and Edmond Santa Fe are back in championship contention. Oklahoma fans could be getting a sneak preview of a Class 6A-I playoff matchup when these two programs meet this Friday.
The game will be broadcast live on Yurview Oklahoma for customers of Cox Communications and will also stream live on Yurview.com.
Both Jenks and Edmond Santa Fe enter this week with 7-1 records. Together, these two programs combined to win just 12 games a season ago, so each team has already surpassed its record from 2017.
Interestingly, Edmond Santa Fe and Jenks both suffered their loss this year on the road to Broken Arrow, who remains undefeated at 8-0.
Assuming Broken Arrow maintains the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, earning the second seed right behind them could be key to reaching the championship round. Class 6A-I is full of great teams, but the No. 2 seed avoids playing Broken Arrow until the title game. The winner of this Jenks-Edmond Santa Fe matchup will have the inside track to that No. 2 seed with just one week left in the regular season.
As for Edmond Santa Fe, they would also like to snap their losing streak against Jenks. That would go a long way towards building their player’s confidence right before the playoffs. Jenks has beaten Edmond Santa Fe in five straight contests, including each of the last four years.
