From scrimmages Thursday:
OOLOGAH 31, FORT GIBSON 7 — The Fort Gibson Tigers finished their preseason schedule with a controlled scrimmage against Oologah on Thursday.
The only score for the Tigers came from the arm of quarterback J.R. Singleton, a 24-yard strike to McKenna Terrell.
“We didn’t play very well,” said Fort Gibson coach James Singleton, J.R.’s father. “We’ve got a lot of things to fix and a week to fix them.”
The Tigers open the season at 7:30 p.m. next Friday when they travel to Tahlequah.
GORE, WARNER AND HASKELL – The three schools did not keep stats but each coach felt like they saw good things from both sides of the ball and that the scrimmage did a lot for their programs.
“We looked a lot better this week and against tougher competition,” said Warner coach Mike Burdge. Warner was able to put the ball in the end zone once against Gore during the scrimmage.
For Gore coach Craig Bivins, the Pirates looked a better on both sides of the ball overall. “However, we still have conditioning issues looming over us as we have a lot of kids going both ways,” said Bivins.
For Haskell it was a chance to get a look at the Wing-T offense of Warner, an offense they will see twice during the regular season.
“We looked really good for this point in the season the keys were we walked away with no injuries, and our defense did not allow a single touchdown in the scrimmage,” said Haskell coach Greg Wilson.
Warner and Gore both open the season at 7:30 p.m. next Thursday. Warner travels Chouteau while Gore will be at home against Panama.
Haskell opens the season at 7 p.m. next Friday at Colcord.
PORTER – Coach Ron Coppedge was overall pleases with what he saw from the left side of his offensive line against Westville. “We blocked well on the left side and our secondary played very well, but we still need work on our defensive and offensive lines on maintaining our blocks and finishing tackles,” said coach Ron Coppedge.
CHECOTAH 14, MULDROW 0 – The Wildcats scored once on a 20- yard reception by Drew Dan from Caleb Knight. Their second score came on a 10- yard run from Keaton Donathon.
“We were happy with what we saw and that we came out of this final scrimmage healthy. We still need to work on finishing blocks and tackles, but overall it was a good night,” said coach Chad Hendricks.
Checotah opens on the road at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Morris.
