Arkoma looks for big football road win Friday night at SW Covenant
otball team may not be one that anyone wants to face. After letting one get away on Sept. 20 against Maud [losing 43-42 when the host Tigers returned an interception for a touchdown in the final 30 seconds of regulation], the Mustangs took their frustations out last Friday night at home against Sasakwa, winning 81-32.“That was what I was hoping for, that we'd bottle up all the emotions from that game and turn it loose on Sasakwa,” Arkoma coach Mark Weatherton said. “Sasakwa has a good team. They're physical and run the ball well. Other than the first drive where they scored in about three plays, we pretty much made them earn everything they got. I thought we played with a lot of intensity and emotion. It was a big district win.”Now, the Mustangs (2-2 overall, 2-1 in District C-4 play) will hit the road to Yukon to face the Southwest Covenant Patriots (1-2 1-1) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.• • •To Get There — Take Oklahoma State Highway 112 east to Fort Smith, Ark., to Wheeler Avenue.
