While it took four games to do it, the Bokoshe Tigers won their first game of the season last week against Eagle Point Christian Academy in a dramatic 48-42 win.
After four weeks, the Talihina Golden Tigers will finally get to play a District 2A-6 contest. The Golden Tigers (4-0, 0-0 in district play), ranked 10th in the Class 2A Poll, will entertain the Panama Razorbacks (0-4, 0-1) at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Doc Robinson Stadium.
The Arkoma Mustangs football team will get one last chance to fine tune things before the rest of the District C-4 schedule. The Mustangs will welcome Eagle Point Christian Academy at 7:30 p.m. tonight at home.
Since this is the final non-district game, there are some things which Arkoma Coach Mark Weatherton would like to accomplish tonight.
The Spiro Bulldogs are on a three-game losing streak since opening the 2011 season with a 44-6 win over Panama at McClain Stadium.
But since then, the Bulldogs (1-3 overall, 0-1 in District 3A-8) has scored only 29 points, with the six in last week's 23-6 district-opening loss to Idabel coming on Kaleb Guidry's interception return for a touchdown.
â€śThat's been the problem,â€ť Spiro Coach Chris Bunch said.
POCOLA â€” If there is a good thing about last week's 75-6 loss to the Vian Wolverines in the District 2A-6 opener for the Pocola Indians, it is that there's the Wilburton Diggers waiting in the wings.
Last year, the Diggers came to John Carter Field and left with a 21-14 victory. The Indians (3-1, 0-1 in district play), who saw their six-game winning streak dating back to last season snapped by last week's loss, do not want the same thing to happen this year when the two teams meet at 7:30 p.m. tonight in Wilburton.
Last week, the Poteau Pirates lost their District 4A-4 opener to the Hilldale Hornets, which was their second loss in a row after opening the season 2-0.
â€śIt was disappointing since we were going in feeling very confident,â€ť Poteau High School senior place-kicker Blake Williams said. â€śWe were pretty sure we had it set up in a way that was going to be a pretty sure way for us to win.â€ť
HEAVENER â€” In a regional-tournament tune-up game for both teams, the Heavener Lady Wolves were able to outlast the Wister Lady Wildcats 9-8 in a nine-inning, international-tiebreaker contest Tuesday afternoon.
Editor's Note â€” Panama treated its games in Tuesday's three-way at Red Oak with Sequoyah-Tahlequah as scrimmages.
