Spiro Bulldogs look good in passing game, defense in Thursday night's three-way football scrimmage

August 18, 2012

TULSA — Two things the Spiro Bulldogs excelled at in a three-way scrimmage Thursday night at Marshall Milton Stadium was their passing game and a bend-but-don’t-break defense.
The Bulldogs scored a passing touchdown against Tulsa Webster, going on to win 7-0 over the host-Warriors, but finished in a pair of scoreless deadlocks with Okmulgee, which carries the same nickname.
In all three sessions, Spiro’s defense gave up big plays but eventually forced turnovers on downs. It also recovered a fumble early in the first session against Okmulgee.
“I was (pleased),” Spiro Coach Chris Bunch said. “I thought we ran to the ball. There was a few plays up front where we didn’t do a good job with the down-front lineman. Sometimes, we were supposed to slant, and they didn’t really slant. Those things can be corrected. Overall, I was pleased with the defense. On offense, we've still got a long ways to go.”
Spiro will have its final scrimmage next week at McClain Stadium against Stilwell.
