Spiro Bulldogs look good in passing game, defense in Thursday night's three-way football scrimmage

August 18, 2012

TULSA — Two things the Spiro Bulldogs excelled at in a three-way scrimmage Thursday night at Marshall Milton Stadium was their passing game and a bend-but-don’t-break defense.
The Bulldogs scored a passing touchdown against Tulsa Webster, going on to win 7-0 over the host-Warriors, but finished in a pair of scoreless deadlocks with Okmulgee, which carries the same nickname.
In all three sessions, Spiro’s defense gave up big plays but eventually forced turnovers on downs. It also recovered a fumble early in the first session against Okmulgee.
