Next up will be a meeting with the Deer Creek Antlers, who took down Western Heights 51-7 and is now 5-2 and 3-1 in the district. The Jays have won six of the eight games in the series, including last year’s 42-35 overtime thriller.

The Guthrie defense was again the story as they held the Indians running game to 25 yards. The shut-out is the second on the season (Guymon). They are now holding their opponents to 38 yards total on the ground.

Senior defensive tackles Trevor Blassingame and Payton Haynes proved to be tough in the trenches. With 26 rushing attempts, the defense held the Indians to negative yards on 9 plays and only allowed two plays of six yards or more.

Junior L’liott Curry hauled in two touchdown grabs while senior Kai Callins scored twice on the ground to seal the game by the middle part of the second quarter. Curry gathered a 20 and 30-yard scores and between those was a Callins 30-yard scoring run. Callins added a 22-yard score to push the lead up 28-0 with 4:23 left until halftime.
