ROGERS -- Rogers High picked up their second consecutive victory Friday night at Whitey Smith Stadium over Claremore, Okla.

Claremore (1-1) scored 22 points in the final quarter while aided by a pair of Rogers miscues, but the Mounties (2-0) managed to run out the clock.

The Zebras trailed 28-3 after three quarters but gained momentum when Rogers botched a snap on a punt that gave Claremore a short field. After a quick score pulled the Zebras within 28-10, Claremore recovered the onside kick and drove 43 yards for another touchdown to cut the lead to 28-18 with 6:05 left.

After a Rogers punt, Claremore quarterback Noah Grimett found Ben Jones in the corner of the end zone for a touchdown with 1:32 left to get the Zebras within three.
