MABEN â€“ Coach Danny Crawford knew West Oktibbeha was in for a battle as they prepared to face a tough Noxapater team on Friday.
Adding to the challenge was the inclement weather that had plagued Oktibbeha County leading up to the game.
West Oktibbeha was never able to get traction on the wet, soggy field as the Tigers recorded a 42-0 victory.
His team may not have won, but Crawford is â€śproudâ€ť of the effort the Timberwolves gave.
â€śOverall, I am proud of them,â€ť Crawford said. â€śThey played hard and if they keep working, they are going to keep getting better. They came out, competed this week and did everything I expected them to do. They werenâ€™t intimidated by Noxapapter. The weather prevented us from moving the ball like we wanted, but overall, I am happy with their effort.â€ť
