The Pocola Indians football team will look to rebound from itâ€™s season-opening loss Friday night against Sallisaw-Central as the Indians will meet the Poteau Pirates junior varsity at 7 tonight at Costner Stadium.
Pocola coach Rick Lang said there were a lot of factors that led to the Indiansâ€™ 48-22 loss to the Tigers.
â€śFirst off, Central is a good ball club, and they beat us in all three phases of the game,â€ť he said. â€śIt was an eye-opener for our kids, but we had a good practice on Saturday and [Monday]. Iâ€™m glad they hit us in the mouth.â€ť
