MAUD â€” A last-second 100-plus yard interception return by Maud lifted the Tigers to a 43-42 come-from-behind win over the Arkoma Mustangs in a thrilling District C-4 contest, and heartbreaking loss for the Mustangs.
The Mustangs had a 42-35 lead late in the final period after a score and Tyree Nolden's two-point conversion, but the Tigers picked off an Ethann Gates pass in the end zone and went the distance within the final 30 seconds of regulation to snatch the win away from Arkoma.
The 8-man match-up between Bokoshe and Sasakwa was painful for the Tigers as they fell 74-20 to the Vikings at home Friday night.
Sasakwa took a 14-point lead in the first quarter before the Tigers scored as Bokoshe quarterback Christian Stroup connected with Nathan Tackett on a 45-yard touchdown pass. The same duo connected for the two-point conversion to cut the deficit to 14-8.
QUINTON â€” A strong second half comeback by the Quinton Savages doomed the Pocola Indians, who lost 29-20 on Friday night.
The Indians led 20-9 at halftime, but the Savages outscored them 20-0 in the second half to complete the comeback.
GORE â€” The Heavener Wolves escaped with a 13-7 win over the homestanding Gore Pirates in a defensive battle.
PANAMA â€” The story line of Friday night's game at George Ollie Stadium would have to be the domination of the Panama Razorbacks offensive and defensive lines. Warner was running an old-school offense, and it seemed like they kept wanting to ride on the back of senior Clint Kite.
Panama scored early, and then did not give up a single offensive point to Warner as the Eagles scored on an 88-yard kick return by Kite.
When the final horn sounded, the Hogs had their second win of the season, posting a 29-6 victory over the Eagles.
SPIRO â€” McKinley Whitfield accounted for five touchdowns and more than 200 all-purpose yards, fueling the Spiro Bulldogs to their second straight win as they routed the Haskell Haymakers 55-6 Friday night at McClain Stadium.
Whitfield scored on touchdown runs of 35 and 9 yards, while passing for three more TDs â€” two to Malik Walker covering 34 and 15 yards and a 22-yard scoring strike to Trevon Mitchem.
Hunter Wilson added field goals of 30 and 27 yards and was a perfect 7-for-7 on extra points for the Bulldogs.
