Slow start costs Empire in 36-14 loss to Cordell

Empire dropped its first game of the season on Friday night 36-14 to Cordell. Two first half turnovers and a slow start offensively contributed to a 27-6 halftime deficit, one that the Bulldogs were unable to come back from.

The game was played a week earlier than most, thanks to the OSSAA's new zero-week rule, which helps teams fill out their ten-game schedules. Empire will take on Elmore City-Pernell next week.
