Coke bottle (Stigler) explodes...
By Robert Przybylo
It’s not often that in one game, you can score nearly 700 percent more than what you did in four contests.
But Friday night, the Stigler Panthers, nearly did just that.
Stigler had only managed a mere seven points through four weeks while giving up 119. It’s hard to get down too much on Chris Douglas’ boys as taking away a 7-0 week 1 defeat to Haskell, Stigler lost to Valliant, Morris and Vian. In other words, three teams who are a combined 14-1.
But wham, Stigler trounced Wilburton 47-6 to up its total to 54 points.
And the funny thing is Stigler didn’t really even get to practice two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) because of severe rainfall. Huh, maybe now we know the secret. I wonder if they’ll practice in the junior high gym for two days this week, too.
Honestly, Douglas said he started to simplify things. It was back to fundamentals and stop worrying so much about learning all the intricate schemes.
Quarterback Chance Sherwood took advantage of the simplification (is that a word?) by passing for two touchdowns and completing 66 percent of his passes. For most teams, those stats won’t wow anybody, but for a team with only one touchdown in four games, to throw two in one game stands out.
