EDMONDâ€”Deer Creek celebrated Homecoming with an 12-touchdown, 83-6 taming of the Tigers Friday night.
The now 6-0 Antlers set the tone of the game early, running back two first quarter punts for touchdowns and scored on the first offensive play for a quick 21-0 lead in less than four minutes of clock time. Nothing went in the Tigers favor as the lopsided score went out of Guymonâ€™s reach early in the first quarter. Guymon scored once in the fourth quarter and tried to get into the end zone a second time but a running clock made time too short for the Tigers
The Tigers won the coin toss and took the opening kickoff on their own 20-yard-line. Deer Creek defense pushed quarterback Jacob Test back into the end zone. A safety was not called, but the ball was spotted on the 5-yard-line.
Guymon was forced to punt the ball away and the one-sided race began. Deer Creekâ€™s Caden Sander ran the punt back 25 yards for a touchdown. A good kick made the score 7-0. The Antlers jabbed at the Tigers less than two clock minutes later with another punt return by Sander. This time for 35 yards. The Tigers fumbled the kickoff after the second touchdown. Deer Creek recovered and Joel Blumenthal recorded the third Antlers score on a 20-yard running play with 8:13 remaining on the first quarter clock.
Sander and Blumenthal shared quarterback duties.
Blumenthal scored on a 40-yard pass from Sander with 5:46 remaining. Sander scored again just 11 seconds later following another Guymon fumble. Then Guymon fumbled on a snap on their own 5-yard-line about a minute later. The Antlers Brennan Miyaki scored on a rushing play for the sixth touchdown. Miyaki then scored a 1-yard touchdown on a rushing play with 3:03 remaining. Blumenthal passed to Kale Jackson for a 21-yard touchdown with :57 left in the 42-minute first quarter.
A running clock was put into play in the second quarter, an unusualal move. It appeared to move the remainder of the game along quickly and limited Deer Creekâ€™s scoring for the rest of the game.
Deer Creek missed a 35-yard field goal with 7:13 elapsed on the clock.
Miyaki scored on an 18-yard run with 2:02 remaining in the half making the tally 63-0. That score stood at the end of the half.
Blumenthal scored again less than minute into the third quarter â€” 70-0. Sophomore quarterback Bryson Bowers completed a pass to Cole Verble with 1:49 on the clock â€” 76-0.
In the fourth quarter, a well played Guymon scoring drive took the Tigers deep inside Deer Creek territory. A long passing play from Test to Alex Zakrzewicz got Guymon the the 11-yard line. A keeper moved the ball to the 7-yard-line. On a fourth and seven situation, a Test pass to Zakrzewicz recorded Guymonâ€™s only touchdown and stopped Deer Creek from getting a shutout. The kick failed â€” 76-6.
Deer Creek answered with a 38-yard touchdown run by Marcus Coleman with 3:38 on the clock â€” 83-6, the most points scored against Tiger defense this year.
Guymon wouldnâ€™t give up, trying to get into the end zone again in the fourth quarter, but the running clock cut time too short for that to happen.
