Yes, the Arkoma Mustangs are undefeated at 3-0, and ranked seventh in the Class C Poll. Yes, they won 26-18 over Southwest Christian Academy last week in Norman. But they may not have played their best football game in that win.
Thus, last week's game may have been a wake-up call of sorts for the Mustangs.
â€śI really think it was frustation at the way they played,â€ť Arkoma Coach Mark Weatherton said. â€śThey were disappointed with their effort and their execution on offense and defense.â€ť
Now, the Mustangs return to District C-4 play as they welcome the Bluejacket Chieftains to town for a 7:30 p.m. contest tonight.
â€śI told the kids that every district game from here out is for the district championship,â€ť Weatherton said. â€śIf we give a game away, it's going to cost us. This is the most important game of the season.â€ť
