Guide to Northwest Classen at No. 6 Deer Creek

by Jacob Unruh Modified: November 1, 2013 at 1:20 pm •  Published: November 1, 2013

When: 7 p.m., Friday

Where: Deer Creek High School

Radio: KTOK-AM 1000

Records: Northwest 3-5, 2-3 District 5A-2; Deer Creek 5-3, 3-2

Last week: McGuinness 41, Northwest 18; Guthrie 28, Deer Creek 3

Players to watch: Northwest — Eric McGee, QB. He threw two TD passes last week, showing some toughness with both being in the second half in a comeback effort.

Deer Creek — Caden Sander, QB/DB. Sander got a little banged up near the end of last week’s deflating loss to Guthrie and the Antlers will need him healthy the rest of the way. He’s been a spark on both sides of the ball.

Storylines: Northwest — A win keeps the Vikings’ slim chances for a playoff spot alive, but a loss essentially ends their season.

Deer Creek — A playoff spot is not guaranteed unless the Antlers beat the Vikings, which would also set up a big matchup with McGuinness in Week 10 that will decide playoff positioning.

The pick: Deer Creek 47, Northwest 18
