ROLAND â€” The Poteau Bandit League teams ended the season Saturday afternoon by splitting their four games against the Roland Rangers.
The sixth-graders, who have never lost a Bandit League game in their careers, shut out Roland 24-0, while the fifth-graders posted a 14-0 victory.
However, the Rangers won the other two games â€” taking an 18-12 three-overtime victory in the fourth-grade game and a 12-0 win in the third-grade contest.

Everything has been settled as far as the Arkoma Mustangs are concerned. They will be second in District C-4, which means a home playoff game on Nov. 11.
But the Mustangs (8-1, 5-1 in district play) do not want to go into the postseason on a downer, so they plan on treating Friday night's regular-season finale at 7:30 p.m. on the road against Claremore Christian (3-6, 2-4) as they have in all the games.
After back-to-back losses to Seminole and Valliant, the Spiro Bulldogs did not look like the postseason was something they could reach. But after last week's home regular-season finale 23-7 victory over the Atoka Wampus Cats at McClain Stadium, the â€™Dogs still have a chance to return to the Class 3A playoffs.
The first thing which has to happen is the Bulldogs (4-5, 3-3 in District 3A-8) must win their 7:30 p.m. Friday game on the road against the Stigler Panthers (8-1, 5-1) â€” who have already clinched second place in the district behind district champion Seminole (9-0, 6-0).
