October 15, 2014

However, on the other hand, it helped the ’Dogs (4-1 overall, 1-1 in District 3A-8 play) get healed up for their big 7 p.m. Thursday road district contest against the Idabel Warriors (5-1, 1-1).

Heavener Wolves look to get back on track Thursday night against Roland Rangers

October 15, 2014

The Heavener Wolves could find themselves easily atop the District 3A-8 standings undefeated. However, two district losses to Eufaula 17-14 on Sept. 26 in the district opener and last week’s 32-6 setback on the road against Stigler have the Wolves behind the eight-ball so to speak.
“We had the better [offensive] numbers, but they [the Stigler Panthers] made the plays and we didn’t,” first-year Heavener coach Sam Hembree said.
Now, the Wolves (2-4 overall, 1-2 in district play) find themselves in a must-win situation at 7 p.m. Thursday against the Roland Rangers at Harvey Stadium.

“It was huge for us to bounce back from something like that,” Wiles said. “That was a big confidence booster for us to win like we did, and it was our first road win. It gives us momentum. We have a very big three-game district stretch.”
