The Spiro Bulldogs seem to be heading in the right direction, especially the way that last Friday night's home-opening 20-12 win over the Muldrow Bulldogs ended.
â€śI thought we had a better second half,â€ť said Chris Bunch, Spiro's coach. â€śWe didn't play very well in the first half, offensively or defensively. We came back and had a strong second half. We had some good defensive stands. Our quarterback (Trevon Mitchem) had a long touchdown run. We were able to take advantage of some breaks. (Jermaine) Jimmerson was steady for us in the backfield. We just were able to make something happen.â€ť

Last weekend was a great one for Dwight Camp. He won the BASSMaster Weekend Series Oklahoma Two-Day Divisional Championship.
Camp's daily limit was three fish per day, and he ended up winning the event with a total of 16.41 pounds, of which 9.94 pounds was his Day 1 haul â€” including the big bass winner for the day, weighing 4.18 pounds.
Because of his Day 1 success, it made Camp's Day 2 a much-less stressful day of fishing. He ended up winning by four ounces, and pocket $2,014. There were 61 competitors in the field.
