September 26, 2014

Something will have to give tonight when the Spiro Bulldogs entertain the Roland Rangers for the District 3A-8 opener at 7 p.m. at McClain Stadium. Both teams enter at 3-0.
“We’re looking forward to it,” Spiro coach Chris Bunch said. “It’s a big game. I expect a packed house. It’s our first district game. A loss will probably make you end up second or third, maybe fourth. We can’t afford to have a loss.”

They hit us in the mouth, and we hit them in the mouth. We had a couple of turnovers in the first half, but we came out in the second half and took care of the ball — and that was the difference in the game. I’m proud of them.”
