SMQ: Guthrie at Shawnee
An interesting game broke out early between Guthrie and Shawnee Friday night, but it was more or less a game that Shawnee never was in any real threat of losing. Here’s a look back at the Wolves 33-23 win over Guthrie.
What went right: Its offense sputtered early as Shawnee’s offensive line had quite a bit of trouble blocking Guthrie’s front seven throughout the first half. Shawnee QB Brayle Brown was rushed, hurried, knocked down and sacked repeatedly. But Shawnee shook off those woes and got its offense going toward the end of the first half and into the second as Jordan Acock scored three touchdowns.
What went wrong: Shawnee had literally no answer for Guthrie’s Kentrell Brothers who caught three touchdown passes and went over 200 yards in receiving. The Wolves also had trouble with their extra points and were victimized by a fake punt attempt and an onside kick during the game.
What went right: Quarterback Bryan Dutton showed why he won the job as a freshman. He threw three touchdown passes — all to Kentrell Brothers — and demonstrated an arm that defies his relatively small size. Brothers was a handful for Shawnee. His first touchdown went for 49 yards as Dutton hit him in stride down the sidelines. His second and third TDs were more jump balls, or set up by jump ball catches, that Shawnee couldn’t defend. Brothers is one of the most explosive players in Oklahoma and he showed why on Friday night.
What went wrong: As well as they played early on, Guthrie’s offensive line struggled to protect Dutton and open holes in the running game as Guthrie had less than 50 yards on the ground. Also, its defense, which had dominated Shawnee’s offense in the first half, found itself the victim of half-time adjustments on Shawnee’s OL and wasn’t nearly as effective in the second half. Guthrie also turned the ball over on a fumble and a pick.
