The Talihina Golden Tigers have lost their last two regular-season games, which also were District 2A-6 contests.
After losing last week 27-14 at Doc Robinson Stadium to the Heavener Wolves, the Golden Tigers (5-2, 1-2 in district play) will look to end their losing streak with a 7:30 p.m. Thursday contest on the road against the Wilburton Diggers (4-3, 3-0).
“The last two games, we've had 11 turnovers,” Talihina Coach Kelly Gravitt said. “Most of these kids were making those kinds of mistakes on a Tuesday night (playing in junior high games). Now, we're making them on Friday night (playing in high school games). But this is Week 8, and we've got eight games under our belts. Turnovers have been the key to the outcomes the last two ball games. If we're able to take care of the ball, we have a great chance to beat Pocola and Heavener. We have to hang on to the football. If we do that, we have a great chance.”
