The Guthrie BlueJays concluded their scrimmage portion of the schedule in El Reno on Thursday evening. The Jays are now preparing for game week with the season opener on Friday evening inside Jelsma Stadium.

Guthrie FootballGuthrie and El Reno participated in a 48-play scrimmage with each team getting 24 offensive and defensive snaps. Luckily, the varsity teams were able to get the scrimmage in between two rain storms.

The Jays offense found the end zone four times, including two highlight plays from senior wide-out L’liott Curry. Meanwhile, the Guthrie defense, was stout and kept the home team at a minimum.

The BlueJays flexed their muscles early and often on El Reno, who begin their season at Carl Albert, by holding the Indians to only five plays of positive yardage. The defense compiled back-to-back sacks on plays eight and nine. The longest play from scrimmage for El Reno was a 7-yard pass on the next to last play of the 12-play series.

The Guthrie offense then took its turn and traveled 70 yards in 10 plays to score for the first time. The drive was boosted from running back Idea Alexander with a tough 35-yard run, that witness several Indians trying to haul in the 200-pound senior, as he showed power and agility all the way to the 5-yard line.

He would score on the next play with a huge gap supplied from the offensive line up the middle.

With two final plays left, Guthrie went to the passing game.

Senior Tanner Meredith first found junior Kevin Blue for a 12-yard connection. On the following and final play of the first series, Meredith lobbed up a pass for Curry, who was interfered with, but still made a catch and dashed into the end zone for a 63-yard touchdown.

Guthrie FootballMeredith and Zane Maltz combined to go 4-4 passing for 90 yards.

The El Reno offense took their second shot at the Jays defense, but had a hard time getting the running game started. On eight rushing plays, the Indians were held to eight total yards.

The defensive highlight came on a batted ball on an attempted pass that went flying into the air and into the arms of linebacker Cal Davis’ hands.

The final 12 plays of the scrimmage came from the Jays and resulted into two more scores.

The first score came on the fifth play where Maltz showed his ability to run in the open field as he scored from 25-yards out.

The final score came on the last play of the evening when, once again, Curry was spotted down field and open. This time Curry ran past his defender to hit pay dirt with a 73-yard pass and catch.

Guthrie will now set their attention to the Duncan Demons, who travel up to Guthrie for a 7 p.m. kick in The Rock.
