August 26, 2013

POCOLA — The Pocola Indians had their first football scrimmage of the young 2013 season Friday night at John Carter Field, hosting the Gore Pirates.
The junior varsity started the scrimmage with each team running 10 plays each, alternating offense and defense three times. Later, the varsity added some down-and-distance situations which led to some big plays for the Indians.
The Indian defense held the Pirates to 17 yards in the first seven plays of varsity. Senior linebacker Garrett Howard recorded a sack on the next play for a 2-yard loss.

Arkoma defense strong, offense shaky in Friday night's scrimmage against Porum

August 26, 2013

ARKOMA — Arkoma coach Mark Weatherton figured his Mustangs' defensive unit would have a good game, and it did in Friday night's scrimmage against Porum at Mustang Field. However, the offensive unit did not perform as well as he thought it would.
The Panthers scored only once on the Mustangs.
“Defensively, I thought we were pretty good,” Weatherton said. “We were a little inconsistent at linebacker. Our defense really had a better game than our offense did.”

Panama looks good in home scrimmage with Savanna

August 26, 2013

PANAMA — For the most part, the Panama Razorbacks' outing in their first football scrimmage of the 2013 preseason, a home one Friday night at George Ollie Stadium against Savanna, was pleasing to third-year coach Brandon Ellis.
“I thought we got out of it what we wanted to,” he said. “We stayed healthy.”
The Hogs scored three times, all on long scoring runs by three different people. Ryan Shirey took it to the house from 60 yards out, while Donald Lotchleas and Andy Burris each had TD scampers of 70 yards.

August 25, 2013

The Golden Tigers were sluggish to start, and played good defense until the offense got started.
