Deer Creek hands Guthrie lopsided loss

Bookmark and Share

The good news Saturday afternoon was the Guthrie boys basketball team scored 19 first quarter points, but the bad news was they managed just 18 the rest of the way.

Playing on back-to-back nights, Guthrie and Deer Creek battled back and forth in the first half with three ties and five lead changes, but Deer Creek out scored the Jays 32-14 in the second half to win 61-37 to even the season series.

The 24-point loss is the worse of the season and in some time for a BlueJay squad.

Junior sharp shooting guard Garrett Hermanski scored a game high 26 points in the win for the Antlers. Kai Callins and Kentrell Brothers paced the Jays for 12 points each.

Deer Creek sealed the lead for good with the first bucket in the second quarter as the Antlers took advantage of Brothers on the bench with foul trouble. When Brothers picked up his second personal with a minute in the opening quarter, the Antlers went on an 11-0 run that ended in the second quarter to give them a 27-19 advantage with 3:45 to play in the half.

The cold shooting for Guthrie continued from the charity stripe and finished just 5-of-13. Deer Creek took advantage of their free tosses by converting 12-of-15.

For the second time this season, the Jays have now lost three games in a row. Guthrie will look to get back in the win column when they travel to Harrah, on Tuesday, before hosting Piedmont, Chickasha, and El Reno on three consecutive days beginning on Thursday.

 Guthrie Scoring: Kai Callins 12, Kentrell Brothers 12, Tim Zupo 5, Jacob Staudt 2, Codee Gross 2, Richard Brothers 2, Bailey Nichols 2
