The Super Bowl isn't until the first Sunday in February. However, for the Talihina Golden Tigers football team, its super bowl will be Friday night.
The Golden Tigers (8-0, 4-0 in District A-6) will entertain the Savanna Bulldogs (7-1, 4-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Doc Robinson Stadium in a game which will likely decide the district champion.
The Bokoshe Tigers were off last week, and are now ready for their final two games of the regular season.
â€śWe did quite a bit of tackling and hitting drills early last week, and we've taped it off this week,â€ť Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray said. â€śWe did get a chance to go see both teams we are going to play [to end the season]. They played each other, and they're both totally contrasting teams. Maud looks to grind it out on the ground. Southwest Covenant likes to air the thing out â€” and surprise you by running the ball.â€ť
With the biggest game for the Arkoma Mustangs football team coming up on Nov. 8 on Senior Night at Mustang Field, the locals are using this Friday night's non-district road game with Wright Christian in Tulsa as a tune-up for that regular-season finale.
