Football is a game of inches and Guymon gave up far to many.
The Tigers showed much improvement from their first two games of the season but couldnâ€™t overcome 115 yards of penalties and two turnovers Friday as they lost to the visiting Hugoton Eagles 35-25 on homecoming.
â€śOverall we played really well. We just had some turnovers and some bad plays,â€ť said Guymon senior quarterback Dakota Harris. â€śIt was
frustrating. We came out in the first quarter and played bad, but then we got our composure together and we bounced back.â€ť
HOOKER, Okla. â€” In what will go down as one of the epic football games in Hooker High School history, the Bulldogs pulled out a 34-33 win over Gruver, Texas, Friday night at Bulldog Stadium.
And they did it with an offense that made the big plays when it needed to, and a defense that was just good enough to hold Gruver's powerful offense.
"It's huge, especially in the fashion in which it came," said Hooker head coach Jacob Kreamer. "It shows these kids that hard work and playing a whole football game, you never know what could happen. They earned it."
The Balko/Hardesty Bison can take solace in one thing: they are relatively healthy.
The Bison finished their three-game gauntlet of powerhouse teams Friday as they lost to Sharon-Mutual, 34-6.
Balko/Hardesty (0-3) hopes the difficult stretch of games will make them better in the long run.
â€śThe three teams that we have played are really good,â€ť Bison head coach Rusty Thomas said. â€śBut you need to get better by playing better teams and we have. We just need to stay focused and stay healthy and it is going to be fine.â€ť
