EUPORA â Maroon Bowl or Webster County Civil War.
No matter what you call it, one thing stood out and that is both teams meant business, but it was the East Webster Wolverines with the 27-7 win over the Eupora Eagles.Â
"The kids just kept fighting," East Webster coach Doug Wilson said. "Offensively, we did what we had to do. Hats off to coach (Junior) Graham he has a great bunch of kids."
EUPORA â The East Webster Wolverines saw the big crowd that came across the county to support the football team and didn't want to let them down.
The Wolverines rewarded those fans by beating the Eupora Eagles 27-7 Thursday night and secured a home playoff game to begin the Class 2A playoffs next week.

At times, the Jackets were not as sharp as offensive coordinator David Boykin wanted them to be in last week's 31-6 win over Jackson Murrah.
