October 20, 2011

The Heavener Wolves got what may have been the biggest win in quite a while last Friday night, beating the Talihina Golden Tigers 27-13 at Doc Robinson Stadium.
“It was a good win for the kids,” Heavener Coach John Thompson said. “The kids went in and played like they were supposed to. They played like they wanted to win. They started out that way, and they never let up. It was the best game we've played this year.”
The bad news is that the Wolves have to wait a week before getting to play again. For the second straight season, the Tahlequah Tigers junior varsity canceled out on them.
