Don't let McGuinness' 32-0 win over Guthrie last week fool you, this game figures to be closer. But that doesn't mean Deer Creek will pull off the win. Jeffreys has anchored a defense that has been nothing short of spectacular this season. McGuinness hasn't allowed a point since Sept. 28 and has allowed more than 13 just once. The Antlers keep it close for much of the game, but McGuinness pulls out the win to win a district title in its first season in 5A.
Class B No. 1 Laverne (9-0) at No. 3 Pond Creek-Hunter (9-0)
Plot: The top regular-season game of the year in Class B. Neither team has been challenged much. Pond Creek-Hunter played a couple tough games early, beating Covington-Douglas 38-16 and Ringwood 54-42. Laverne hasn't even been challenged that much. The Tigers closest game of the season was a 54-12 blowout of Garber on Oct. 12. The game has turned into one of the top rivalries in eight-man, with the teams splitting 3-3 since Laverne dropped to eight-man in 2006.
Starring: Pond Creek's Brady Krittenbrink has rushed for 1,736 yards and 27 touchdowns while also recording 94 tackles on defense. Laverne doesn't have much in the way of standout stars, but the Tigers are solid in every phase of the game. Quarterback Tucker Rolf, though, has been outstanding.
The pick: Laverne 26, Pond Creek-Hunter 20
There's some question over how Laverne will react to being pushed when that time comes. That question gets answered here as Laverne holds off a tough Pond Creek-Hunter fight to win District B-2 and avoid a second-round matchup at Class B No. 2 Wetumka.
