September 27, 2013

The real season begins tonight when the Poteau Pirates will begin District 4A-4 play at 7:30 p.m. against archrival Sallisaw at Perry F. Lattimore Stadium.
The Pirates (3-0) look to end a six-game losing streak to the Black Diamonds (2-1).
“If it's going to be a rivalry game, we're going to have to start doing our part,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said. “We're going to have to start winning some of them if it's going to be a rivalry. It is a big game. We're 30 minutes apart, so that makes it a little bit bigger.”
To begin district play at 1-0 is very important to the Pirates.

Heavener looks for second straight win in District 3A-8 opener Friday night at Valliant

September 26, 2013

The Heavener Wolves football team got its first win of the season last week in a 13-7 win over Gore, which was a lot better night than the season opener the week before in a 42-6 loss to Hartshorne.
“We played better on defense,” Heavener coach Carl Lee said about last week's win. “We still left a lot of points on their end of the field, but our defense played a lot better.”
The combination of a few more players available for the Gore game and just playing for a second straight week helped.
