STILLWATER – Gunnar Gundy could do no wrong in the first half against Deer Creek.

Stillwater's senior quarterback was stellar, completing his first 19 passes for 334 yards and five touchdowns and a rushing score in the Class 6A-II No. 2 Pioneers' 48-10 victory against No. 10 Deer Creek on Friday. His only incompletion was a miscommunication with star receiver Anthony Bland early in the second half, Stillwater coach Tucker Barnard said.

Bland caught two touchdowns while Steven Brown corralled seven catches for 186 yards and three touchdowns, helping Stillwater (4-0, 1-0 District 6A-II-1) garner an early lead. Barnard said he wouldn't be surprised if the small blemish in the second half bugged Gundy.

"Probably because he's really competitive," Barnard said. "He didn't let us know last night that it did."

Stillwater travels to Midwest City for a matchup with the Bombers (1-3, 1-0) on Friday.
