Things could not have started much better than they did for the Talihina Golden Tigers football team Friday night as they blasted the Wilburton Diggers 70-22 at Doc Robinson Stadium in the season opener.
â€śWe were awesome on offense,â€ť Talihina coach Kelly Gravitt said. â€śWe made our blocking assingments. We were physical and got after it. Our defense was sound. They did a great job, and it was a great opener. They didn't look like it was a Week 1 game. They looked sharp. It was a good game for us.â€ť
The Bearcats did something that hadn't been done in a while Friday night, win. The Bearcats went to Valliant and defeated the Bulldogs 13-8.
â€śThat was their first win in over two years,â€ť Gravitt said. â€śThey're fired up in Bearcat Country. Now, they're going to have their 2013 home opener, and they're going to give the Golden Tigers a great game. Everybody gives us their best.â€ť
Now, the two 1-0 teams will hook up at 7:30 tonight in Antlers in the Bearcats' home opener.
