High school notebook: Guthrie needs quick start against McGuinness
Slow start against Deer Creek made it tough on Bluejays, who needed to make a big comeback before winning in overtime
Guthrie didn't get off to a quick start offensively last week against Deer Creek.
The defending state champion didn't get a first down until its third series of the game, which came in the second quarter, and didn't cross midfield until a series later.

Guthrie eventually broke through and wound up winning the game in overtime.
Bluejays running back J.T. McFadden said they couldn't afford a similar start this week when Guthrie faces a second consecutive undefeated team in Bishop McGuinness.
“We can't be sluggish against them,” McFadden said. “It's going to be a hard game for us.”
A Guthrie win would give the Bluejays the District 5A-2 title. A McGuinness win would send the district title race between those two and Deer Creek into the final week.
ALLONZO TRIER TAKES IN OU GAME
Oklahoma basketball coach Lon Kruger has been showing strong interest in Tulsa NOAH guard Allonzo Trier for a while, bringing him to multiple games during his freshman season last year, and the process hasn't slowed down.
Trier spent some time with the Sooner basketball squad over the weekend, and took in the football game Saturday night as well.
With interest from virtually every major program in the country, Trier is regarded as one of the nation's top 100 players in the 2015 class.
Trier, who played for the OKC Storm homeschool program as a freshman, will start his sophomore year at NOAH on Nov. 1. Last year, he averaged 24.5 points per game and set the single-season scoring mark for a freshman in the National Homeschool Association.
