Last week, the Arkoma Mustangs, although slow starting, pulled away from the Midway Chargers to end up mercy ruling them 86-36 last Friday night at home in a battle of District C-4 heavyweights.
â€śIt was back and forth,â€ť Arkoma Coach Mark Weatherton said. â€śThey were stuffing it down our throats. It was only 30-28 in the second quarter, and I was nervous. We then reeled off 42 straight points, and then I felt better. We played a good game, and it was nice to get a big win like that over a pretty good team.â€ť
Now, the Mustangs (7-0, 4-0 in district play), ranked eighth in the Class C Poll, will play the other district heavyweight, the Webbers Falls Warriors (6-1, 4-0), ranked seventh, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday night in Webbers Falls.
â€śIt's the only two undefeated teams of the district,â€ť Weatherton said. â€śI told the kids that this is for the district championship. It's two unbeaten teams in the district, and two pretty good teams. It ought to be a big crowd on both sides, since we're less than a hundred miles apart. It should be some exciting football.â€ť
