September 12, 2014

The Bokoshe Tigers football team is essentially starting the season at 0-0, despite losing 46-0 in their home opener last week to county rival Arkoma in a game ended at the 9:54 mark of the third quarter due to the 45-point mercy rule.
The Tigers (0-1) will begin District C-4 play tonight as they entertain the Bowlegs Bison at 7:30 p.m. at Tiger Stadium.
Despite the rough start to the season, the players have been very upbeat as they prepared for the Bison.

Spiro welcomes Muldrow for battle of Bulldogs in tonight’s home opener

September 12, 2014

The good news for the Spiro Bulldogs was they won last week’s football season opener 47-40 over Stilwell.
However, the not-as-good news for the ’Dogs that night was they had to hold on for dear life to get that victory, scoring a touchdown in the final period and keeping Stilwell out of the end zone on four plays inside the Spiro 10.
“We’re proud of the fact that we won, but there are a lot of things that we’re not satisfied with,” Spiro coach Chris Bunch said. “There was a reason we were in the position we were in. We’ve got to get those things corrected.”
