Bokoshe wants upset of Class C's No. 4 Thackerville Wildcats

October 16, 2013

It was quite a night Friday night for the Bokoshe Tigers as they won their first game of 2013 when they routed the Boulevard Christian Patriots 54-6 at Hatbox Sports Complex in Muskogee.
“Everything went well,” Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray said. “The kids were pleased. I was pleased with the way we played. We really didn't play that badly the week before [against Midway]. We just turned the ball over, but it all came together for us Friday night. However, this week, Thackerville is a whole different monster. They're a senior team with 19 players on the roster, with 12 seniors.”
The Tigers (1-5 overall, 0-4 in District C-4) will try to upset the fourth-ranked Wildcats (5-0, 3-0) at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in Bokoshe. The same recipe that happened in Friday night's win has to happen Thursday night for the Tigers to have a legitimate shot at the upset.
“It's a game where we have to have a ton of success early,” Murray said. “This could be a game where we do that, as as good as Thackerville is we still may get beat. We're going to have to be successful and continue the momentum from the game the other night. We've got to come out and be successful. We're getting better each week. We're just going to play and see what happens.”
