SALLISAW â€” The Poteau Pirates played the Sallisaw Black Diamonds just about as close as they could in the first half of Thursday night's District 4A-4 game Perry F. Lattimore Stadium. They allowed Sallisaw a very quick touchdown to begin the game, but then held the Diamonds scoreless for the rest of the first half with the exception of a highly debatable 30-yard field goal, which the Pirates queried.
TALIHINA â€” Heavener Coach John Thompson said the key for his Wolves to pull off the upset in Friday night's District 2A-6 game against the Talihina Golden Tigers at Doc Robinson Stadium was to score first â€” and have a positive start to the game. He got his wish.
The Wolves took advantage of a turnover and scored on their first two possessions of the contest to pull off the upset over the Golden Tigers by a score of 28-13.
ARKOMA â€” The Arkoma Mustangs took another step in their quest for a District C-4 championship Friday night remaining undefeated and mercy ruling the Midway Chargers 86-36 at home.
SPIRO â€” On one hand, Friday night's District 3A-8 game between the Seminole Chieftains and the Spiro Bulldogs at McClain Stadium probably should have been more lopsided than it was.
Seminole is a good passing team, and it seemed like Spiro was running a zero coverage on the back end of its defense. At least three times, a Chieftan was running free and simply let the ball fall through their hands.
VIAN â€” The Vian Wolverines kept the Panama Razorbacks winless as they posted a 57-7 victory Friday night in a District 2A-6 contest.
HARTSHORNE â€” The Hartshorne Miners struck late in the game to pull out a 24-19 victory over the Pocola Indians in a District 2A-6 contest Friday night.
Trailing late in the fourth quarter, the Miners (6-1, 3-0 in district play) scored to snatch the win away from the Indians (4-3, 1-3).
The Heavener High School cross country teams will begin their postseason this afternoon as they will run in the Class 3A Regional Meet at noon in Coweta.
The top seven teams will automatically qualify all their runners to next weekend's Class 3A State Meet at Shawnee's Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center. After those runners are taken out of the mix, the next highest seven boy and girl runners who aren't on the top seven teams will also make state as individuals.
The Reed-Williams Insurance team (no names of the team members were provided) won the first flight title in Friday afternoon's Sans Bois CASA Charity Golf Tournament at Wolf Ridge Golf Course. The team's score was a 56.
The foursome of Jim Bo Holstead, Buzz Glover, Joe Davidson and Billy Terry won the second flight championship with a score of 65. The quartet donated their winnings back to the organization.
