Del City might be 1-2 through three weeks of the football season, but the Eagles have still managed to prove they’re one of Class 5A’s best teams. In narrow losses to Norman North and Midwest City, the Eagles hung with two strong 6A opponents, losing by a combined 12 points.

Of course, with a meeting against No. 3 Lawton MacArthur this week, the Eagles will get the chance to prove themselves yet again.

Guthrie, with a favorable schedule to this point, is the only team in Class 5A to still be undefeated. And there are a couple more wins lined up before the Bluejays get to the heart of their schedule in Week 6.

Overall, there wasn’t much movement in the 5A poll, with Deer Creek dropping slightly after a 30-point loss to Edmond Memorial. Tulsa Kelley also slipped one spot after a 48-42 loss to a previously winless Coweta team that had been struggling offensively.

Here is The Oklahoman’s new Class 5A top 10:

Rank, Team, Record (Prev.)
1. Carl Albert, 2-1 (1)
2. Guthrie, 3-0 (2)
3. Lawton MacArthur, 2-1 (4)
4. McAlester, 2-1 (5)
5. Deer Creek, 2-1 (3)
6. Del City, 1-2 (6)
7. Shawnee, 2-1 (8)
8. Tulsa Kelley, 2-1 (7)
9. Claremore, 2-1 (9)
10. McGuinness, 1-2 (10)
Dropped out: None
