The good news is the Arkoma Mustangs football team will finally get a home game, after opening the season on the road for the first two weeks.
â€śWe're excited to be playing at home,â€ť said Mark Weatherton, Arkoma's coach. â€śWe're looking forward to Friday night, especially after the way we played against Bokoshe.â€ť
However, it's not the easiest of home openers â€” not at all, since it's against the Maud Tigers. Kickoff for the District C-4 game is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Mustang Field.
â€śIt's not the way you want to open your home season,â€ť Weatherton said about the Tigers. â€śYou would like to have someone who isn't as strong. They're so good. Right now, I'd have to say the team to beat in the district (C-4) is Maud. They're quarterback is a great athlete. They have a great group of players. They have good speed and good size.â€ť
