Another week of football for LeFlore County, courtesy of those Talihina Golden Tigers.
Into the quarterfinals go Talihina and we are tagging along here at the Journal picks.
After a day of feasting at Big Barb’s, we had to turn our attention back to football. Watched a little of the Arlington Cowboys play like they ate some bad Tom Turkey and then the Teasippers lose to TCU. Mack, it’s been good to know ya.
In case you failed to notice, we bumped the overall record up to 60-17 by correctly picking Talihina’s win over a previously undefeated Warner team last week.
The score was off a bit, but hey, it’s the final result that counts.
This week, those fighting Golden Tigers get to return home and welcome Cashion, which gets to make a bus trip a little over 200 miles to foreign territory for those Wildcats. Hint to Cashion: Those tall objects are mountains and trees.
For those of you interested, Cashion is located north of Oklahoma City, somewhere between Kingfisher and Guthrie. I know that is a bus ride I would enjoy.
The Wildcats are 12-0 (undefeated, just like Warner was before last week). Talihina is 11-1. Only eight teams are still playing in Class A, thus the quarterfinals.
Can the Tigers knock off two straight undefeated teams? Were there any people showing that Christmas spirit by getting into fisticuffs at Walmart over the night? Any pumpkin pie left?
Can’t answer the middle question, but there better be some pie left for breakfast.
CASHION AT TALIHINA—Roughly 70 percent of the people who voiced an opinion on the coachesaid.com forum said Cashion would win. That is based without doubt, on them having watched both teams in action. The Savanna loss and the overtime win over Wewoka were the reasons most of them mentioned for a Talihina loss. Yeah, right. Cashion is obviously good, or the Wildcats wouldn’t be undefeated. Talihina is, too. TALIHINA 28, CASHION 24.
