Talihina made nice Class A playoff run

December 8, 2012

While the football season ended for LeFlore County two weeks ago and ending this weekend with the final three state title games being played, I'd be remiss if I didn't congratulate the Talihina Golden Tigers on a great run in the Class A playoffs.
After missing the playoffs last season, they got to the state quarterfinals before losing 43-24 to the Cashion Wildcats on Nov. 23 at Doc Robinson Stadium.
I know no team wants to lose its last game, but no need to hang your heads, Golden Tigers. You had a great season, and congratulations for it.
