Not to be outdone, the Guthrie defense held their fourth opponent to negative yards rushing. Northwest finished with negative 45 rushing to go with 109 yards passing. In the regular season, the defense allowed a ridiculous 206 yards total on the ground. In total, the team gave up 80 points total.

Radio Highlights

For the third time in school history, Guthrie finishes the regular season unbeaten at 10-0. The other two seasons came in 2007 and 2011, in which, the Jays went on to win state titles.

In addition, Guthrie extends their home winning streak to a school record 26 games and under Rafe Watkins are 13-0 in senior night games.

The BlueJays learned 45 minutes after their game that Chickasha had defeated Duncan by six points – which was the exact number needed to clinch the final playoff spot in 5A-1. Chickasha’s senior running back Josh Latham scored all three Chickasha touchdowns.

Guthrie and Chickasha (5-5) have met twice in the past 12 years and both coming in the playoffs. The Jays won the 2006 first round game in Guthrie (48-7) and in the 2002 state semi-finals (23-20) in Norman. Playoff Bracket

Both teams have agreed to a 7 p.m. kickoff, but will need final approval from the OSSAA. The winner will move on and play the winner between Shawnee and Claremore.
