For the first time in four seasons, there's going to be an 11th game for the Poteau Pirates football team.
The Pirates (9-1) will entertain the Cleveland Tigers (5-5) at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Costner Stadium.
The Pirates sealed up a home playoff game in last week's 44-14 road win over the Tulsa Rogers Ropers at S.E. Williams Stadium in Tulsa.
SPIRO â All the Spiro Bulldogs had to do last week was beat the Checotah Wildcats on their own Ogle Field grass, and the âDogs would have had a nine-game winning streak â and be the District 3A-8 champions. None of that happened as the âCats won 43-28, and knocked the Bulldogs into the No. 3 seed â and a road playoff game at 7:30 tonight against the Hilldale Hornets in Muskogee.
I moved to Poteau on Veterans Day in 1977. The first thing I did was eat an âArlieâ burger from the A&M Food Market. I loved them, and I was hooked on them for life.
Seventy-eight Poteau Upper Elementary School students will be inducted into the National Elementary Honor Society tonight beginning at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria.
To achieve membership, the students had to earn "high ratings, by a committee of educators, in the areas of scholarship, responsibility, service and leadership," according to Assistant Principal Mark Williams.
former state Sen. Kenneth Corn will be the guest speaker. Also in attendance will be numerous parents, teachers and administrators, including Superintendent Don Sjoberg, Williams said.
The schedule includes:
A request by the defense lawyer of accused murder Elvis Aaron Thacker, 25, to strike his alleged confession in the 2010 death of 22-year-old Brianna Ault on the grounds of multiple constitutional rights violations was denied Wednesday.
During the continuation of Thackerâs preliminary hearing that has spanned three months, a motion to suppress evidence was heard in conjunction as testimony by witnesses for the defense took the stand.

The Poteau Pirates clinched a playoff berth with a win over Muldrow a couple of weeks ago. Since that hasn't happened for this senior class, that achievement was a special one.
âIt feels great to be in the playoffs, especially since we worked so hard,â senior lineman Jesse Gollihare said. âWe've prepared ourselves all year for this moment.â
The Talihina Golden Tigers football team wrapped up a perfect regular season and a District A-6 title Friday night with a 48-8 rout of the Gore Pirates. Make no mistake, the Golden Tigers (10-0) are pleased with both goals being accomplished.
However, that's all good, but now it's time to focus on the Class A playoffs, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday against the Stratford Bulldogs (6-4) at Doc Robinson Stadium.
