Chiefs drop to Eagles
No one said it was going to be easy, least of all Okolona coach Jack Clark.
Clark started his first year with the Chieftains with his eyes wide open and knew the division was tough.
“Everybody is just so close to equal,” Clark said.
The Chiefs knocked off division foe East Webster and county-line rival Shannon earlier this season, but fell 35-12 to Eupora Friday night.
“We kept up in the ball game well up to the half,” Clark said. “We gave up a big play just before the half and let them score and they scored on the kickoff (to open the second half). It just kind of went down hill from there.”
The loss puts the Chiefs at 1-1 in division with two games left but neither will be a walk in the park.
Okolona will head to Bruce to take on the Trojans Friday.
“They’re like all the rest in our division,” Clark said. “And it’s the television game of the week and their Homecoming and senior night.”
Following their trip to Trojan land, the Chiefs will wrap up the regular season hosting Calhoun City. Clark said his team is basically healthy and they all know what has to be done to secure a playoff berth.
“We’ve got to play better up front and we can’t turn the ball over,” Clark said. “If you make a mistake in the first quarter it can end up costing you a game, because everyone in our division is so tight.”
