SMQ: Bryan Dutton, Kentrell Brothers...wow, 32-14...
By Robert Przybylo
Anybody else get caught in that horrible traffic on I-40E trying to hit up the Carl Albert and Guthrie football game. After nine hours of softball (including Colin White’s CA girls), I was trying to get to Jim Harris Field.
Oy. But eventually walked through the gates at 7:20, and all my bitterness went away with the atmosphere for the Titans and Bluejays.
Bitterness was gone, replaced by egg on my face as Guthrie was a team possessed in winning against Carl Albert to maintain the best 5A team on the west side (at least).
Guthrie 32, Carl Albert 14
This game turned on one play, I tells ya. On fourth down in the first quarter, Taylor Hawkins overshot Alex Polston for what would have been an easy touchdown. It was a great call, but Hawkins was too fired up.
In fact, it was pretty incredible that Guthrie was up 6-0 at halftime. Carl Albert started three possessions in Guthrie territory and didn’t score.
Luke Davis’ 73-yard run on the first play of the second half was a sign of things to come. Then it became the Kentrell Brothers and Bryan Dutton show.
Dutton was on target all night. No play personified the game more than Dutton’s third touchdown pass, this one to Devonte’ McCully.
I wanna say it was Carl Albert’s Darren Colquitt who was inches away from a sack/fumble. Instead, Dutton hit McCully for the score and a 19-0 advantage.
And those who were there will not forget the performance of Brothers. Is that what you Bluejay fans get to see every week? Lucky. Brothers had eight receptions for 156 yards and four touchdowns. Three of them he just jumped higher and wanted it more.
He also had his first six carries of the season. I had him for 59 yards, GHS had him for 60, still impressive. On defense, he registered at least two sacks, more than 10 tackles and had a fumble recovery. He admitted he was playing his heart out. No kidding.
Hawkins found Polston for a touchdown to make it 19-7, but the Titans couldn’t stop the Jays on this night. Derrik Kelly didn’t end up with huge numbers, but he was effective running the ball in the second half.
CA couldn’t get that vaunted rushing attack going and then was forced to play catch up the rest of the second half. Still loved the atmosphere even if it did give me my first LOCK loss of the season.
- McCully is a stud. First time I’ve seen him. Wow, Dutton has the ‘easiest’ job in 5A. Just throw it up to McCully and Brothers. Honestly though, Dutton has matured so much from last year.
- Kenton Whittington couldn’t break the big for CA. He had a lot of solid runs but never that getting the crowd into it 30 or 40-yard run that could have turned the tide.
- Maybe the play of the game was after CA’s touchdown that made it 19-7. Guthrie faced a 3rd-and-1 from its 29. Play action, Dutton to Brothers, 71 yards later, touchdown.
- Guthrie defense is better than what I anticipated. Bluejays have to feel like they’re in the driver’s seat with wins over Deer Creek, Ada and Carl Albert.
- Up next: Carl Albert takes on Ada. Guthrie welcomes El Reno.
