The Heavener Wolves could find themselves easily atop the District 3A-8 standings undefeated. However, two district losses to Eufaula 17-14 on Sept. 26 in the district opener and last weekâ€™s 32-6 setback on the road against Stigler have the Wolves behind the eight-ball so to speak.
â€śWe had the better [offensive] numbers, but they [the Stigler Panthers] made the plays and we didnâ€™t,â€ť first-year Heavener coach Sam Hembree said.
Now, the Wolves (2-4 overall, 1-2 in district play) find themselves in a must-win situation at 7 p.m. Thursday against the Roland Rangers at Harvey Stadium.
Poteau senior fullback/defensive end Dylan Wiles said Friday night's road win over Stilwell was much needed after losing a heartbreaker the week before at home to Tulsa Metro Christian.
â€śIt was huge for us to bounce back from something like that,â€ť Wiles said. â€śThat was a big confidence booster for us to win like we did, and it was our first road win. It gives us momentum. We have a very big three-game district stretch.â€ť
The wind was blowing briskly out of the north Monday night at Costner Stadium with 100 percent humidity.
The Broken Bow Savages freshmen team came to town for the second of a home-and-home with the Poteau Pirates freshmen. Both teams exchanged back-to-back scores in the first half, then Poteau scored one late TD to take the 12-6 lead into intermission and scored a pair of second-half touchdowns to post a 24-12 victory.

The Wister Lady Wildcats softball team ended up being the lone county representatives at state this fall diamond season. It was good they got there, but the state quarterfinal loss to Dale stung. However, they were there, and only seven other teams can say they were part of the 2014 Class 2A Fast-Pitch State Softball Tournament. Congratulations on a fine season, Lady â€™Cats, and maybe you can make it a trifecta next spring and return to the Class 3A State Tournament.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. â€” The Arkansas Razorbacks can only think what might have been in Saturdayâ€™s home game with the Alabama Crimson Tide at Frank Broyles Field at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The Razorbacks played one of their best Southeastern Conference games in a while, and frankly outplayed the Crimson Tide in all aspects of the game â€” except the most important one, the scoreboard, as the Tide left town 14-13 victors.

CAMARILLO, Calif. (AP) â€” A national survey of gas prices reports that Americans are paying 12 cents on average less than they were three weeks ago.
Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that the average for regular grade gas is $3.26 per gallon, while midgrade averages $3.48 and premium $3.64. Retail diesel averages $3.74.
Lundberg said the price has decreased for 16 weeks, crediting lower crude oil prices.
She forecast further cuts of a dime or more, thanks to decreases in the price of crude oil and ethanol.
