BOKOSHE — The Bokoshe Tigers football team originally was slated to have had an off date last week. Instead, since both the Tigers and the Webbers Falls Warriors were open, they decided to meet last Friday night in Bokoshe.
With the fact that the Tigers are an injury-filled squad, the open date would have been welcomed. Instead, the visiting Warriors defeated the Tigers 69-0 in a game stopped at halftime by the mercy rule.
With the Tigers (0-4, 0-3 in District C-4) so injured, the week off may not have been as beneficial as hoped.
“I know the week off would have helped, but I'm just not sure how much it would have helped,” said Tyler Massey, Bokoshe's second-year coach.
However, things may be looking up for the Tigers, who will travel this Friday night to Council Hill to meet the Midway Chargers at 7:30 p.m. The Chargers are also winless at 0-4 overall and 0-3 in districty play, and have been outscored 208-22 this season — which includes last week's 71-22 loss to Southwest Covenant in Council Hill.
