For the second time in 10 seasons the Guthrie BlueJays are labeled as district champions.
The Jays were needing just one win in their last two games to have the label as champs, but it took just seconds to realize they were on their way to a big night with a 69-0 win over Western Heights. Guthrie led 55-0 at the half and scored on their first eight possessions.
The 69-points is the most points scored since November 2nd, 2007 when the Jays shut-out Woodward by the same margin 69-0.
The Jays are now winners of their last six games and improve to 8-1 overall and 6-0 in district play. The Jets fall to 2-7 and 2-4 in the district. Click here to listen to defensive coordinator Kelly Beeby’s post game radio interview.
Carl Albert handled Deer Creek (31-7) to claim the second spot of the district. Deer Creek and Ada will play next week for the third and fourth playoff spot.
More than likely first round playoff scenario’s with next week to be played will be Guthrie hosting Durant, Carl Albert hosting Duncan, Lawton Mac hosting the loser between Deer Creek and Ada, and Ardmore hosting the winner of Deer Creek and Ada.
Guthrie wasted little time, literally, to score on their first two drives with their opening drive taking just 38 and their next taking 44 seconds. In total, the Jays had five drives that lasted less than a minute and saw nine different Jays find the end zone.
Alphonso Wilcots, Bryan Dutton, Kentrell Brothers, Devante McCully, Hunter Gates, Omari Ajanaku, Cody Reihs, and Chad Nash each had a score while Derrik Kelly added two. The offense piled up 476-yards of total offense while working with a short field all night.
The Jays have shut-out three of their last four opponents.
The defense intercepted the Jets three different times, including Marcus Ware’s first pick of the season. Freshman Donavan Jordan also got his first interception while fellow freshman Kai Callins got his fifth of the season.
Ware was named the Farmers and Merchants Bank Player of the Game.
Guthrie concludes the regular season with a trip to Speegle Stadium, in Oklahoma City, to take on the Southeast Spartans next Friday night. The Spartans are 3-6 overall and have dropped their last six games in a row after starting the season 3-0.
