Gans Grizzlies rally past Arkoma Mustangs

September 15, 2014

GANS — The Arkoma Mustangs, who made history last football season by winning the school’s first-ever playoff game, had a chance to make some more history Friday night in their District B-4 opener against the homestanding Gans Grizzlies. Unfortunately, the Mustangs couldn’t close the deal.
The Grizzlies, who trailed 42-32 entering the final period, scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to rally for a 48-42 victory over the Mustangs.
The Mustangs still had a chance to down the Grizzlies, but Arkoma fumbled the ball at the Gans 10 with about two minutes to play.
