More area youths in the spotlight

October 31, 2013

Muzzle loading season is in full swing, and I only have hunted one evening so far. Paula and I went to our friend’s house in Greers Ferry, Ark., for the weekend, so I did not get to hunt. We had a heck of a time four-wheeling in the mountains there, and it was definitely well worth the trip.

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.”

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.

Coming off bye week, Bokoshe looks for strong finish to 2013; First up, a Senior Night battle of Tigers with Maud

October 29, 2013

The Bokoshe Tigers were off last week, and are now ready for their final two games of the regular season.
“We did quite a bit of tackling and hitting drills early last week, and we've taped it off this week,” Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray said. “We did get a chance to go see both teams we are going to play [to end the season]. They played each other, and they're both totally contrasting teams. Maud looks to grind it out on the ground. Southwest Covenant likes to air the thing out — and surprise you by running the ball.”
