By the Poteau Pirates football team winning District 4A-4 this season, it meant that there would be two home playoff games â€” assuming they would win the first one.
The Pirates won that first game, handling the Cleveland Tigers 48-7 last week at Costner Stadium.
â€śIt was a good night for us,â€ť Poteau coach Greg Werner said. â€śAnytime you enter the playoffs and win [a game] big, it's always awesome. It was a great night for our kids, coaches and our program to get a playoff win.â€ť
Then there were three. Last week, LeFlore County had five of its eight high school football teams make the playoffs. Three of them made it to tonight's second week of postseason play.
Poteau (Class 4A) and Arkoma (Class C) will each face perennial football powers tonight as the Pirates meet Clinton and the Mustangs face Shattuck. Both teams will seek a berth in next week's state semifinals.
The Talihina Golden Tigers will meet Hominy, which handed them a 58-12 loss in the Class A state semifinals in 1982 at Doc Robinson Stadium â€” which will be the site of tonight's second-round playoff game.

My fifth-grade Bandit League football team had a bake sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday outside Atwood's. I went for a while to help the ladies set up, and keep an eye on my players.
After we got everything going, my wife, Jenny, wanted me to go look at some Christmas lights inside the store. I grabbed a bag of popcorn and a few roasted peanuts on my way out â€” I mean, life is good.
