Poteau senior knew team needed big win last week against Muldrow

October 30, 2013

After seeing their perfect season dashed by the Tulsa Cascia Hall Commandos Oct. 17 at Costner Stadium, the Poteau Pirates knew a big win was needed last week at Muldrow. They got it, winning 42-3 to keep the Pirates' hopes at not just a home playoff game in their grasp, but the No. 1 seed from District 4A-4.
“It was huge,” Pirate senior Connor Wheat said. “We knew we had to get a win, and we got a big one.”

The Poteau Pirates' regular-season finale against Tulsa Rogers will be Nov. 7 at S.E. Williams Stadium in Tulsa, the home of the Tulsa Washington Hornets.

Heavener Wolves in must-win situation Friday night at Idabel

October 30, 2013

Despite being on a three-game losing streak, the Heavener Wolves can still be a part of the Class 3A playoffs. However, to make that happen, the losing streak needs to be snapped.
The Wolves (2-5 overall, 1-4 in District 3A-8) must win out — getting a road win Friday night against Idabel, then winning on Senior Night on Nov. 8 against Eufaula — and some help from LeFlore County's other Class 3A team, Spiro, on Friday night. Then, there will be a 10th game [since Heavener has only nine regular-season games in 2013] on the docket.
