When the playoffs began, I went against Guthrie because I didn’t think they could get by Tulsa East Central in the Class 5A semifinals.
Now, I’m eating crow.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. Guthrie has dominated opponents all season and that didn’t change tonight. 45-14 was the final score but the game was over midway through the third quarter. Guthrie’s first-round win over Ardmore was my first time seeing the Bluejays up close and I came away impressed, and frankly if I could have changed my pick I would have, but I stuck by my decision all week.
There is no doubt in my mind Guthrie will raise the gold ball next week.
Lawton MacArthur and Bixby may hate to see that but maybe they should read that with a smile… after all, I picked Carl Albert to win it all (i.e. more crow).
