Poteau soccer teams play final scrimmages of season against Greenwood, Ark.; Pirates win, but Lady Pirates suffer loss

March 1, 2012

The Poteau High School soccer teams played their final scrimmages of the season Tuesday at Costner Stadium against Greenwood, Ark.
Both the boys and girls games were advanced by two hours in hopes of beating a strong line of thundershowers that was crossing the state of Oklahoma with Poteau in its sights.
The visiting Lady Bulldogs easily disposed of the Lady Pirates by the score of 4-1, with Poteau's only goal being an own goal which was accidentally scored by Greenwood player.
But a late strike by the Pirates enabled them to win 3-2 over the ’Dogs.

Hinson Trial Day Two

February 29, 2012

Trial for Aaron Hinson began Tuesday morning at 9 A.m. Seven woman and five men were chosen to decide Hinson's fate. The trial began with jury members listening closely to what their responsibilities and requirements are as a juror. After instructions were given opening statements were presented by both Margaret Nicholson, Assistant District Attorney prosecuting in the case and Peter Ashor, defense attorney for Hinson. Nicholson began telling the jurors what evidence she would be presenting and how she is convinced that Hinson was guilty of murdering his girlfriends three-month-old son.

Down to six teams, five of which could make state

February 29, 2012

LeFlore County now has six high school basketball teams still alive in the playoffs — Poteau's girls (Class 4A), Spiro's teams (Class 3A), Howe's girls (Class 2A), Talihina's girls (Class 2A) and Wister's boys (Class 2A).
As I stated in the headline of today's column, five of these schools have a shot at making next week's state tournaments.
You wonder why not all six? That is because if the Lady Lions and the Lady Golden Tigers win their playoff games on Thurdsay, they will meet each other Friday afternoon — and one will knock the other out of the postseason.
