Talihina football team to step out of district play Friday night against UCA

When the new District A-6 was set up by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association, it was an odd-football district in total team numbers — seven, as opposed to the customary eight.So, this week was the odd week for the Talihina Golden Tigers, who aren't playing a District A-6 foe this week. So, the choices were two — either take a week off or play somebody. The Golden Tigers chose the latter.The Golden Tigers will play at home for the first time in three weeks at they will entertain Union Christian Academy from Fort Smith, Ark., at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Doc Robinson Stadium.“We're glad to be playing at home,” said Kelly Gravitt, Talihina's coach. “We've only been home once since the season started. We're excited to be home.”The Golden Tigers (4-0) are undefeated so far this season after posting a 35-14 road win over the Quinton Savages last Friday night to begin District A-6 play.
