DURANT, OK -- The Durant Lions are coming off a less than stellar performance. Last Friday coach Byron Cordell's boys fell 38-6 on their home field against Bishop Kelley.
He says they had a great week in practice but it didn't carry over into the game.
So this week the Lions are getting back to basics and putting in the work as they get set for one of the toughest teams in Class 5A.
"It was a disappointment in how we played, number one. Number two, when you got a lot invested it's hard to give up and we wanted to get a lot invested in this game and our guys have responded very, very well and very proud of the way they've handled things and so far it's been a great week," Cordell said.
Durant will head to Tulsa to play undefeated Memorial Friday.
