After almost a month away from getting to perform in front of their fans, the Talihina Golden Tigers will get to play their home opener â€” finally.
The Golden Tigers (2-0) will entertain the Sallisaw-Central Tigers at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Doc Robinson Stadium.
â€śWe're excited about being in our home opener,â€ť Talihina Coach Kelly Gravitt said. â€śThe kids are excited. We haven't been beaten at home for a long time, except in the playoffs last year (to Colcord). There's a longtime tradition here at 'The Pit.' The kids have had a good week of practice. They're looking forward to playing in front of the home crowd.â€ť
