The game was never in doubt after the second quarter as the Guthrie High School football program improved to 2-0 on the season.
The Jays jumped out to a 7-0 lead after a quarter but erupted in the next quarter for 28 points on their way to a 50-0 win for the first game of the season inside of historic Jelsma Stadium.
Several players found the playing field for the Jays, including freshmen running back Zane Thomas who had a couple of great runs.
The defense proved to be stout for the second straight week by pitching a shut-out. A season ago, they left four teams without a score.
The first score was set up nicely with junior Jaylen Harper’s 57-yard punt return to the Woodward 4-yard line. Two plays later, senior running back Isaiah Hammons scored on a 2-yard run. He would also score in the third quarter with a 7-yard run for his sixth touchdown in the first two games.
Guthrie made it a 14-0 game with a six-play, 58-yard drive capped off with a 1-yard touchdown run for junior quarterback Hayden Calvert.
Just over two minutes later, Harper found the end zone with a 17-yard reception for his first score of the season.
The Bluejays found the endzone twice with two scores within 23 seconds of each other.
The first score, again set up by a Harper 32-yard punt to the 48-yard line, came on the feet of Calvert. This time from nine yards. And with 41 seconds left, Calvert spotted a wide-open Jaylen Chelf in stride with a 75-yard pass and catch.
In the second half, junior running back Alexander Clark scored his first varsity touchdown with a bruising 15-yard run into the south endzone.
An errand snap out of the endzone by Woodward capped the scoring.
The Jays (2-0) return home Friday as they entertain the Duncan Demons (0-1) for the third of four non-district games. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
