The Bokoshe Tigers football team appeared that it was going to have an open date this week. Earlier this year, the Tigers' Week 6 opponent, Eagle Point Academy, dropped them.
However, the Tigers (0-5) found an opponent, the Boulevard Christian Patriots (0-3). The two teams both seeking their first wins of the season will meet at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Hatbox Sports Complex in Muskogee.
“We need to play this week bad,” Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray said. “We had a couple of injuries last week. We were down to our fourth center we've used this year. We've made some changes this week. I think we're going to move Andrew [Walbaum] back to center to see if we can eek out a win this week.”
