HEAVENER â€” Famous author Charles Dickens wrote the novel, â€śA Tale of Two Cities.â€ť Had he been at Harvey Stadium Friday night, he might have penned a story entitled, â€śA Tale of Two Halves.â€ť
After the homestanding Heavener Wolves looked lifeless in the opening half, they got things going in the second half and downed the Pocola Indians 21-12 in a District 2A-6 contest.
The win put the Wolves (5-5, 3-3 in district play) into the Class 2A playoffs as the fourth-place team from the district. As a reward for the playoff berth, the Wolves will get to travel three hours to face third-ranked Stroud in the opening round of the playoffs at 7:30 p.m. next Friday.
The season ends for the Indians at 5-5 overall and 1-5 in district play.
