It's not that inconceivable that the Panama Razorbacks football team could have been 3-0 as it enters Friday night's 7:30 p.m. District 2A-6 opener at Wilburton.
“Honestly, we weren't that far from losing to Roland,” said Panama coach Brandon Ellis, whose team lost in Week 2 40-12 to the Rangers at George Ollie Stadium. “Looking at the film, we just shot ourselves in the foot. We didn't line up where we were supposed to. Our defense played great. When you lose the turnover battle, you normally lose the game — and we did.”
The good news was the Hogs (2-1) bounced back last week with a 29-6 win over the Warner Eagles to cap off a three-game homestand to begin the season.
