Heavener Wolves look to get back on track Thursday night against Roland Rangers

October 15, 2014

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 week’s 32-6 setback on the road against Stigler have the Wolves behind the eight-ball so to speak.
“We had the better [offensive] numbers, but they [the Stigler Panthers] made the plays and we didn’t,” 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.

Senior fullback/defensive end says last week's win over Stilwell was much needed for Poteau

October 14, 2014

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.
“It was huge for us to bounce back from something like that,” Wiles said. “That 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.”

It was good to see Wister girls make state

October 14, 2014

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 ’Cats, and maybe you can make it a trifecta next spring and return to the Class 3A State Tournament.

Hogs can only think what might have been against Tide

October 13, 2014

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Arkansas Razorbacks can only think what might have been in Saturday’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 — except the most important one, the scoreboard, as the Tide left town 14-13 victors.
