Quick guide to Ponca City at Class 5A No. 3 Guthrie

by Jacob Unruh Modified: September 13, 2013 at 3:05 pm •  Published: September 13, 2013

When: 7 p.m., Friday

Where: Jelsma Stadium, Guthrie

Last week: Sapulpa 48, Ponca City 7; Guthrie 46, Duncan 6

Players to watch: Ponca City — Raylon Gaines, WR. The senior had six receptions for 77 yards last week. He will be the top target for junior QB Michael Mongold.

Guthrie — Reed Roberts, QB. The Bluejays cruised last week, getting Roberts comfortable in his debut. Now he’ll be at home against a team that allowed more than 200 yards and three touchdowns through the air last week.

Storylines: Ponca City — Can the Wildcats match Guthrie’s athleticism? The Bluejays were absolutely dominant last week and Ponca City struggled against Sapulpa.

Guthrie — Bluejays coach Rafe Watkins was pleased with the special teams play last week. That’s a key for Guthrie and he hopes that will continue.

Bonus: Last week the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover came through Guthrie with Mumford & Sons headlining the festival. An impromptu soccer match broke out at Jelsma Stadium.

The pick: Guthrie 42, Ponca City 21
