Jays wear down Enid


ENID, Okla. —

But the size of the Guthrie offensive line would take over the rest of the way as the Bluejays responded with a 58-yard drive as Roberts completed his first pass of the game, a 14-yard touchdown to to L’liott Curry.

Guthrie would push across the end zone twice more in the fourth quarter using a strong rushing attack, driving 67 yards on 11 plays, capped by an Alexander 6-yard touchdown run on a drive that saw the Bluejays picking up six, seven yards at a time, mostly by Callins.

After Enid fell behind 29-16, the Plainsmen were stymied on their next possession when Lawrence was picked off by Callins who returned the ball to the 2-yard line for a 34-yard return. But a block in the back call brought the ball back to the 36-yard line. Guthrie. though, continued its domination at the line of scrimmage and marched into the end zone with Callins sccoring from seven yards to make the final margin 36-16.

 “We just had a hard time blocking them once they got ahead,” Chard said. “We just ran out of gas.”

Lawrence was 16-of-27 for 248 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

“Fred played great,” Chard said. “That late pick made the difference in a score that’s not quite indicative of the game.”

The Plainsmen were without wide receiver/defensive back Alex Lofton who was held out with a sprained ankle. Chard said Lofton was 75-80 percent, but decided to hold Lofton out for next week’s district opener at home against Bartlesville.

 “You have to think in the long haul and we need Alex worse next week,’’ Chard said.

Chard said the team is ready to begin district play.

“Our confidence is fine. We have a huge game next week (at home against Bartlesville) and that’s the one that really counts toward our playoff aspirations. We were well-prepared. I feel good.”
