The Heavener Wolves will conclude their three-game road trip to begin the 2014 football season at 7:30 tonight against the Muldrow Bulldogs, coached by former Poteau assistant coach Rob Johnson.
The Wolves (1-1) ended up not getting to play their originally scheduled home opener last week against Vian due to the track still being under construction at Harvey Stadium. So, they paid a visit to the Wolverines and lost 35-0. However, first-year Heavener coach Sam Hembree said the Wolves did not play all that poorly.
Spiro coach Chris Bunch said that, while he was glad his Bulldogs won their season opener 47-40 against Stilwell on Sept. 5, he said that the game was a nailbiter because his team didn't take care of business like they should have.
The good news in last weekend's home-opening 35-14 win over Muldrow at McClain Stadium was he believed his team took care of business â€” at least in the first 24 minutes.
