Senior receiver/defensive back says Pirates will bounce back; game time vs. Van Buren, Ark., moved up to 7 p.m. Friday

September 11, 2014

The Poteau Pirates, last season’s Class 4A state runners-up, did not get to start the 2014 season as they would have liked, losing to the Alma [Ark.] Airedales in last Thursday night’s Hooten’s Classic game at Fort Smith [Ark.] Northside High School.
However, Poteau senior wide receiver/defensive back Dayton Martinez has no doubt the Pirates will bounce back.
“It was very frustrating,” Martinez said about the Alma loss. “I think we can do a lot better than that. With all the practice we’ve been doing, it’s helped. I think we’ll come back.”

Pocola coach Rick Lang said there were a lot of factors that led to the Indians’ 48-22 loss to the Tigers.
“First off, Central is a good ball club, and they beat us in all three phases of the game,” he said. “It was an eye-opener for our kids, but we had a good practice on Saturday and [Monday]. I’m glad they hit us in the mouth.”
