Heavener football team looks to bounce back with home win over Checotah Friday night

October 4, 2012

The Heavener Wolves football team was in perhaps the best game from a fan's perspective so far this season. The Wolves ended up being in a shootout last Friday night on the road against the Roland Rangers, who ended up prevailing 40-32.
“Offensively, we played pretty well,” said Carl Lee, Heavener's first-year coach. “Defensively, we struggled a bit at times in our secondary. From a fan's standpoint, it was an pretty exciting game. From a coach's standpoint, it was a game in which I was trying to not get a heart attack.”
If the Wolves (3-2 overall, 1-1 in District 3A-8) want to keep hopes of winning a district title and/or a home playoff game alive, a win this Friday night against Checotah is a must.
“If we want to reach our goal of winning a district title and get a home playoff game, we really have to win this game,” said Lee, whose Wolves entertain the Wildcats at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Harvey Stadium. “It's not a must-win game because everything is still out there on the table, but it's a game we really want to win.”
The ’Cats (4-1, 1-1) won their first district game last week, pummeling the Valliant Bulldogs 57-6 after suffering their only loss of the season in their district opener against the Rangers 22-20.
