Foyil faces Warner for Homecoming

FOYIL — The Foyil Panthers are hoping to get their first ‘home’ victory under head coach Wade Couch this Friday in the District A-8 opener against Warner.

Friday’s showdown with the Eagles comes on the eve of Homecoming at McGregor Field. Pre-game festivities kick off at 6:30 p.m. followed by the game at 7 p.m.

According to Couch, “Warner is a very strong opponent that is undefeated and very confident in their ability. Rightfully so, in that they have 12 seniors, and 11 of them have started since they were freshmen.”

The past three weeks, the Panthers have bought into Couch’s system, created an identity of playing all four quarters with heart, determination and hard work, and gone 1-2 in non-district competition.

Foyil’s lone win came on the road in a 14-7 decision at Class 2A Chelsea. Last Friday, the Panthers fell 38-6 on the road at Adair.

Offensively, the Panthers have tallied 40 total points (13.3 per game) and are led by running back Kody Sanders, who has 64 carries for 255 yards and two touchdowns.

“Our team is becoming just that a ‘team’,” Couch said. “We have had some great days of practice this week and we are learning valuable lessons that carry on well after football is over.

“The players are beginning to understand the importance of trusting each other, and are beginning to play harder for each other as well. It’s been fun to watch them mature.”

Warner is 3-0 with wins over Chouteau-Mazie (40-0), Hulbert (26-19) and Panama (36-6).

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
