Prune Virginia Creeper

Hi, after planting my Virginia creeper a few months ago, just one of the stems have shot away in height. Should I prune it to help let the small stems to catch up?

I would leave it alone for now. It is just the plants way for trying to compensate for the foliage it has lost. The longer stem is reaching out for sunlight and the sunlight it gathers will help provide energy to the rest of the plant and the others will catch up in good time.
