The Woodward offense never had a chance Friday night in their season opener against the third-ranked Guthrie Bluejays.

As impressive as the Jays were in Week 0 by holding Ponca City to only seven yards of total offense, they were more dominant by holding the Boomers to minus 60 yards of total offense.

Woodward was held to negative 47 rushing yards in the first half, and negative 12 in the second half. Not helping matters were four lost fumbles and seven penalties.

Guthrie has now won 12 of the last 13 meetings with the Boomers.

With great field position on the entire night, the Jays offense piled up 303 yards of offense with all but 10 yards coming on the ground.

Friday night in western Oklahoma was not a perfect night with Guthrie tossing three interceptions and piling up 90 yards in penalties.

Senior Jaylen Harper rushed for nearly 8 yards per carry and finished the night with 109 rushing yards on just 14 carries. He added to his team-high seven touchdowns with four scores.

Sophomore running back Zane Thomas added three scores and 89 rushing yards, while senior quarterback Hayden Calvert added 76 yards on the ground and a score.

Already leading 14-0 after the first quarter, Guthrie scored five of their 10 touchdowns in the second quarter to eliminate any doubt for the second half.

The non-district competition will soon step up for the Jays as they travel to Duncan on Friday night and host Tuttle the following week for a Homecoming showdown that will attract state-wide attention in a 5A-4A showdown of two heavyweights.
