Heavener Wolves look to bounce back with road win against Muldrow

September 19, 2014

The Heavener Wolves will conclude their three-game road trip to begin the 2014 football season at 7:30 tonight against the Muldrow Bulldogs, coached by former Poteau assistant coach Rob Johnson.
The Wolves (1-1) ended up not getting to play their originally scheduled home opener last week against Vian due to the track still being under construction at Harvey Stadium. So, they paid a visit to the Wolverines and lost 35-0. However, first-year Heavener coach Sam Hembree said the Wolves did not play all that poorly.

Spiro Bulldogs to pay a visit to Haskell Haymakers

September 19, 2014

Spiro coach Chris Bunch said that, while he was glad his Bulldogs won their season opener 47-40 against Stilwell on Sept. 5, he said that the game was a nailbiter because his team didn't take care of business like they should have.
The good news in last weekend's home-opening 35-14 win over Muldrow at McClain Stadium was he believed his team took care of business — at least in the first 24 minutes.

Jody Ray — the marriage counselor

September 19, 2014

The older I get, I'd like to think I'm getting a little wiser. If you're married and live with a woman, you learn that there are rules men have to follow:
1. Always put the toilet seat down.
2. There's a special way to fold towels.
3. “Fine” is not good.
Save the world, recycle.
God bless our troops and our veterans.
Go, Pokes next Thursday against Texas Tech
Go Packers against Detroit.
Have a great weekend.

Poteau Pirates finally home, entertain Campus Friday night; kickoff for contest moved up to 7 p.m. from 7:30 p.m.

September 19, 2014

It probably seems like forever since the Poteau Pirates were at Costner Stadium. That will change Friday night with the Pirates’ home opener against the Campus Colts from Haysville, Kan., south of Wichita. Kickoff will be 7 p.m., moved up from its original 7:30 p.m. start.
“It’s nice to be at home,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said.” For as long as we’ve been practicing, we haven’t been home yet. We’re glad to be home.”

Arkoma looks to rebound against No. 3 Dewar

September 19, 2014

The Arkoma Mustangs felt like they let one get away last week against Gans in the District B-4 opener, losing 48-42 after having a 42-32 lead after three periods.
“I think we’re a little down, but we had a good practice [Tuesday],” Arkoma coach Mark Weatherton said. “They know they have to get over it. We talked about the Maud loss last year. We lost a close one, and we still came back and made the playoffs. I think they understand that they just have to be frustrated and go on with it.”

Pocola welcome Quinton for home opener

September 19, 2014

After not being home since last season, the Pocola Indians finally will get to play in their backyard at John Carter Field. The Indians will entertain the Quinton Savages at 7 p.m. Friday in their 2014 home opener, which will begin a four-game homestand.
“Our kids are ready to play at home,” Pocola coach Rick Lang said. “We’ve got a four-game homestand as we go into district play. Hopefully, we’ll be able to play well at home and make it an advantage for us.”
