ENID, Okla--The Newkirk Tigers hold their final scrimmage tonight as the Tigers travel to Stroud to face Cushing and Stroud.

 The middle school will scrimmage at 4:30 p.m., the varsity at 6:30 p.m.

“It’s another chance to fine tune everything,” Tiger coach Bob Underwood said Monday.  “Then, we‚‘ll start game prep for Crescent starting Friday.”

 Newkirk travels to Crescent Thursday, Sept. 3.

 Last Thursday, the Tigers traveled to Enid, scrimmaging OBA.

 “It was a good scrimmage,” Underwood said.  “Some good, some not so good.  The main thing that came out of it is we’re basically healthy.  We are going to need to stay healthy if we’re going to have a good season.”
 Offensively, the Tigers had some success against the Trojans.

 “I was pretty happy with our group up front,” he said.  “That group is our most experienced, they did a nice job.  Our backs ran hard, Braxton (Stopp) showed some good things.”

 Defensively, the Tigers gave up a score on a long pass but did a decent job, according to Underwood.

 “I was pretty pleased,” he said.  It’s going to take some time for us to find some cohesion but that’s true for everyone.  We’ll find it.”

“We looked a little ragged at times but we’re experimenting with some players in new positions,” he said.
