Call on Kentrell Brothers and chances are he'll answer.

Need Brothers to throw a touchdown pass? Check. Need him to catch a touchdown pass? Check. Need him to run for touchdown? Check.

Guthrie didn't really use their star that often Friday night, but when they did he came up big, completing the above checklist and a little more on defense as the second-ranked Bluejays won a slugfest against No. 7 Coweta 27-3 at Jelsma Stadium in the Class 5A quarterfinals.

Brothers' stats weren't the “wow” kind, but the University of Missouri commit was the perfect “Johnny on the spot” when the pressure was on.

“It's too bad when you have two good teams like this that one has to lose,” Brothers said. “But I had a dream I was going to have a big game and it came true. I don't think I've ever had a game where I've run, caught and thrown for touchdown, but we came up big when we had to.”

But nothing came easy for Guthrie (11-1).

Coweta (9-3) begrudgingly gave up yards, forcing the Bluejays to drive 80 and 83 yards to take a 14-0 halftime lead.

Quarterback Bryan Dutton found Brothers from 13 yards out for their first score. Then Brothers found Marcus Ware in the second period after taking a pitch from Dutton, bobbling the ball before delivering a perfect 24-yard pass.

“We just put that play in this week or last week I don't remember,” Brothers said. “I just saw Marcus open and I threw it.”
