October 16, 2013

The Talihina Golden Tigers football team continues to claw its way to wins, with the latest one being a 47-14 win over Sallisaw-Central last week.
“Defensively, we payed better than we played all year,” Talihina coach Kelly Gravitt said. “The kids were on cue and were fast to the ball. Everybody played assignment football.

But after that first drive, they got jacked up and were better.”
