SPIRO â The one word Spiro Bulldogs Football Coach Chris Bunch said after Friday night's first scrimmage of the preseason against the Checotah Wildcats at McClain Stadium was âdiscplineâ â and not in a positive way.
Bunch believes that his players were not as disciplined as needed to perform well on the gridiron. In Friday night's scrimmage, the âCats threw four touchdown passes and rushed for another TD.
POCOLA â The Pocola Indians had their first scrimmage of the preseason Friday night at John Carter Field facing the Gore Pirates.They did not dissappoint, finding the end zone three times to only the Pirates' one.
The Indian defense came out fired up, causing three turnovers in Gore's first 20 plays, highlighted by Dakota Highley's interception on the fifth play of the scrimmage. In fact, the Pirates only gained six yards in their first 10 plays.
ARKOMA â Last year, the Arkoma Mustangs' defense gave up 598 points last season. If Friday night's home scrimmage is any indication, things will be vastly different in 2011.
The Mustangs did not give up a score to the Canadian Cougars in Friday night's first scrimmage of the preseason.
