Football -vs- Guthrie
Round 5A Playoff Game
At Sapulpa (Neutral Site)
Unbeaten Guthrie Ends Collinsville's Remarkable Season
A huge Collinsville
Cardinal crowd made the Thanksgiving holiday weekend trip to Sapulpa
to cheer on Collinsville in the 5A Semi-Final Playoff football game
against the unbeaten Guthrie Blue Jays. The Cardinal's hope of a
first ever trip to the state finals next week looked promising as
the first quarter unfolded but slowly dimished as the remaining
quarters played out. In his word to the team after the loss, Coach
Kevin Jones said that Guthrie had been there 6 of the last 8 years
and we are here for the first time in 20 years. To the seniors coach
said "Thank you for leading us here ... we can build on this".
"We knew we needed to play a great game ... and we didn't."
The Cardinals end the thrill-filled season with a 10-3 record.

that reached the endzone (as did all but one other).
their first quarter success Collinsville seemed to be fighting
uphill as they mostly lost the field position battle. This
Zane McElroy's punt from the endzone only got out to the 30
yard line. Guthrie gained very little before attempting a
field goal that hit the upright and kept the score at 7-7
at 5:41 in the 1st quarter.

Collinsville Band was small but mighty as their numbers were down

The majority of my playoff football photos are extremely dark as
I accidently slipped over to the daylight setting on my camera early
in the 1st quarter. I'll try to salvage a few and build a partial
page. -- Ted 12:30am Sat
