Mountain Gateway Sisterhood of Steel, Poteau's roller derby team, released its 2013 schedule. The SOS will play five home games this year starting on Jan. 26 against Red River Roller Derby out of Wichita Falls, Texas.
SOS is entering its third season of play at SkateReation in Poteau.
A new quirk to the schedule will see SOS play three games at the Fort Smith (Ark.) Convention Center in a series of doubleheaders with the River Valley Roller Girls.

Jan. 26 Red River Roller Derby Poteau
Feb. 16 I Heart Derby Mini Boot Camp Fort Smith, Ark.
When the 81st LeFlore County Tournament bracket was drawn up, the Leflore Lady Savages and the Panama Lady Razorbacks were to have met in an opening-round game at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Poteau High School's Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse.
However, due to a Lady Savage suffering an injury earlier this month in the Rock Island Conference Shootout, the Leflore girls have ended up forfeiting all their games in the county tournament, thus denying two seniors, Allison Todd and Taylor Lloyd, one last county tournament. Needless to say, the Lady Savages are disappointed.
For two local schools, their basketball teams received good news when the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association announced the Class A and B District Tournament assignments on Thursday.
In Class A, the Cameron teams will be host sqauds, with Panola and Kiowa coming to town. The Kiowa Cowgirls feature former Panama player Lauren Smith.
Sunday Couple Scrambles at Wolf Ridge Golf Course will take place at 2 p.m. Sundays.
The entry fee is $15 per person for the nine-hole weekly event.
