Foster takes spotlight from Staley
By Robert Przybylo
Guthrie’s Donte’ Foster scored a season-high 35 points in the Bluejays’ 75-73 double overtime classic victory against Stillwater on Tuesday night.
Foster grabbed 15 rebounds and tallied 11 of the team’s 15 total points in the two overtimes.
The Bluejays jumped out to an early 10-point lead in the first half, but the Pioneers fought back to send the game into overtime.
In the first extra session, Stillwater had a six-point advantage only to see the Bluejays come back.
“That was a great game by both sides,” Guthrie coach Pete Papahronis said. “I have to give a lot of credit to Clayton Smith and Kentrell Brothers (both of Guthrie). They did a great job shutting down Jamell Cormier.”
Cormier was held to 14 points for Stillwater, well below his season average.
Guthrie had defeated the Pioneers earlier this season at Stillwater.
Staley debuts: Guthrie’s Kye Staley, in his first game since helping lead Guthrie to the state football championship, scored six points.
“I thought Kye played extremely well for only having one practice under his belt,” Guthrie coach Pete Papahronis said. “Obviously, he’ll have to work himself back into shape, but he’s got experience and is a tremendous leader.”
Papahronis said he didn’t plan to play Staley, but the game situation dictated his decision.
No matter what sport, if you want excitement, follow the Bluejays, my friend.
