The Heavener Wolves football team got its first win of the season last week in a 13-7 win over Gore, which was a lot better night than the season opener the week before in a 42-6 loss to Hartshorne.
â€śWe played better on defense,â€ť Heavener coach Carl Lee said about last week's win. â€śWe still left a lot of points on their end of the field, but our defense played a lot better.â€ť
The combination of a few more players available for the Gore game and just playing for a second straight week helped.
â€śWe had a couple of guys back [who did not play against Hartshorne], and that helped,â€ť Lee said. â€śWe think we're getting the kinks ironed out.â€ť
Now, the Wolves (1-1) will begin District 3A-8 play at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Valliant.
