Phoenix Staff Reports

— MCALESTER – The Fort Gibson Tigers and Wagoner Bulldogs finally got to hit someone in a different uniform as both teams participated in a four-team scrimmage in McAlester on Friday.

The two teams played each other then Wagoner faced against McAlester. Fort Gibson took on Pryor after meeting the Bulldogs.

Wagoner’s A.J. Freeth had three receptions for 64 yards and two touchdowns, a 10-yarder from Jake Woodson against Fort Gibson and a 40-yarder from Corey Tipton versus McAlester. Tipton and Jake Woodson split time at quarterback and combined for 8 of 20 oassing for 112 yards, two TDs and two interceptions.

“We played very soft on both sides of the ball,” Wagoner coach Dale Condict said. “I wasn’t pleased with our attitude or our effort. We made too many mistakes on offense to be productive. We have a long way to go but I also feel like we have the time and talent to get there.”

He also said that neither quarterback “did enough to win the job tonight.”  However, sophomore Joseph Charboneau came in for one series and led the Bulldogs to a score against Fort gibson.

Fort Gibson on the night saw J.R. Singleton have a hand in two touchdowns, a 40-yard run and a 40-yard pass to Jordan London. Logan Wood put one in the end zone from 13 yards out, Michael Richey had a 12-yard TD run and Tristan Johnson ran one in from the 4-yard line.

“The defense played well,” said Fort Gibson coach James Singleton, J.R.’s father. “The offensive line protected well, opened up some good holes and the running backs ran well.”
