There was many side stories to Friday nightâ€™s District 4A-4 game at Costner Stadium between the Poteau Pirates and the Tulsa Central Braves.
Roger Barcheers was in pursuit of the modern-day Poteau High School rushing record. When Poteau coach Werner pulled off the first offense as the fourth quarter began, Barcheers trailed the record held by Nik McDaniel by 20 yards. He never re-entered the game.
The Pirates were dominate on both side of the ball as they defeated the Braves by the score of 41-7 to celebrate Senior Night.
Behind a career-high 19 points from Talihina's Tara Hawkins and 14 points and 14 rebounds from Kilah Cummings, the Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings rolled past the Bacone College Junior Varsity 92-34 to celebrate homecoming Thursday night at Mick Thompson Fieldhouse.
Holding the Bacone JV to 26 points in the second half proved to be the difference for the Vikings in their 84-62 win for their first victory of the season.

The Oklahoma State Department of Education is offering a free, two-day, regional workshop in Poteau to support science teachers and school administrators as they transition to new Oklahoma Academic Standards for science.
The new standards were adopted by the State Board of Education and signed into rule by Gov. Mary Fallin this summer. They replace Priority Academic Student Skills science standards. State science assessments will not be aligned to these new standards, however, until 2016-2017 so that districts and teachers have time to transition.
We had a great time for Halloween last Friday. James and Angela McKay drove their golf cart over, and it was all dressed up with spider webs. James was â€śPinheadâ€ť and looked really scary.
