PREVIEWING: 4A No. 9 Fort Gibson at 4A No. 7 Sallisaw

Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.

Web: FortGibsonTigers.tv

Records: Sallisaw 5-1, 7-2; Fort Gibson 4-2, 6-3 4A-4.

Last week: Sallisaw 42, Muldrow 20; Fort Gibson 41, Stilwell 0.

Last meeting: Fort Gibson 49, Sallisaw 42 (2012).

Series record: Sallisaw leads, 20-5.

Notes: The winner of this game will likely end up third in 4A-4, the loser drawing 4A-3 champion Wagoner in the first round of the postseason. The game will be a homecoming of sorts for FGHS coach James Singleton, who was the Black diamonds’ offensive coordinator and offensive line coach from 2000-05. Sallisaw’s main weapons are running back Cale Wilson who has rushed for 1,297 yards on 42 carries and 14 touchdowns. Sophomore quarterback Quint Scoufos has completed 54 of 104 passes for 939 yards and eight touchdowns and only one interception.

Sallisaw has won seven of the last eight meetings... Last week’s shutout win over Stilwell was the second shutout for Fort Gibson this season – the first time since 2004 a Tiger defense has recorded two or more shutouts. Tigers quarterback J.R. Singleton has an outside chance at topping 1,000-yards rushing. He has 844 going into the contest and has passed for 1,343 yards.
