Arkoma looks to end home football season with win on Senior Night over SW Christian; game time has been moved to 7 p.m. Friday

October 24, 2012

The Arkoma Mustangs football team wants to end its home season on a positive note as the Mustangs will play their home finale against Southwest Christian Academy at 7 p.m. Friday at Mustang Field. The game time was moved up 30 minutes to help SCA get home faster since a lot of their athletes will take the ACT test Saturday morning at home in Norman.
The Mustangs (3-5) saw their two-game winning streak snapped Thursday night with a 64-18 loss to Thackerville, which is leading District C-4. The final score really did not indicate just how well offensively Arkoma played.
“Not taking anything away from Thackerville, because they are a good team, but we helped them out,” said Mark Weatherton, Arkoma's coach. “We turned it over four times in the first quarter. We put the ball on the ground five times in the first quarter. We had a perfect onside kick that we didn't recover. It was a frustrating night. We had some nice runs, but they would end with fumbles. We were moving the ball on them, and I was proud of our offense. But we just couldn't stop them defensively. They have some big weapons, but it was good that we played. It was a learning process. We started four freshmen, and the kids are taking their growing pains. That's what we're going to do this week.”
