BOKOSHE — The good news last Friday night for the Bokoshe Tigers football team was it got its first win of the season, downing Eagle Point Academy 36-18.
“We were glad that we got the win,” said Tyler Massey, Bokoshe's second-year coach. “We played well for four quarters.”
The win was the best game the Tigers played since their season opener in a 48-34 loss at home to Oaks, where the visiting Warriors broke a 34-all tie with two touchdowns in the game's final four minutes.
However, the bad news is due to unforseen circumstances, the Tigers will not have an opportunity to face one of the teams atop the District C-4 standings — the Thackerville Wildcats — due to not having enough players for this Friday's game.
“We were looking forward to seeing what would have happened,” Massey said. “It's tough on us not getting to go. We weren't looking forward to the (four-hour) trip there, but we don't like the fact that we're going to have to forfeit the game.”
