Getting geared up for Balloonfest this weekend

October 21, 2011

I will be at Balloonfest tonight in my creation, “The Egganator.” This is how it works.
I have built a 7x7-feet chicken coop cage, and I (and other third-grade Poteau Bandit League coaches) will stand inside. You will be able to purchase grade AA double-yolk eggs for $1 apiece or a dozen for $10, and you then throw the eggs at those standing inside “The Egganator.”
Now, I know some of you Oklahoma Sooner fans will love to tee off on me, since I picked Texas Tech to beat OU Saturday night at Owen Field in Norman. It's my “Upset Special of the Week.”

Poteau entertains Broken Bow on Senior Night in must-win situation

October 20, 2011

To say that the Poteau Pirates football team was disappointed in last week's 41-7 loss at Sallisaw is an understatement.

The rivalry game is finally here — Panama at Pocola

October 20, 2011

When visiting the Pocola High School football fieldhouse at John Carter Field, on the south wall is a digital clock which has been counting down the days until the rivalry game between the Indians and the Panama Razorbacks.
Now, that clock will read just mere hours until kickoff of tonight's installment of the rivalry game, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. tonight at John Carter Field.

Bokoshe Tigers return to action tonight at home against Bluejacket

October 20, 2011

After a week off, the Bokoshe Tigers will return to the gridiron tonight.
The Tigers (1-5, 0-4 in District C-4) will try to get their first district victory when they entertain the Bluejacket Chieftains (2-4, 1-3) at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

Heavener Wolves get momentum with win over Talihina, but no one to play this week

October 20, 2011

The Heavener Wolves got what may have been the biggest win in quite a while last Friday night, beating the Talihina Golden Tigers 27-13 at Doc Robinson Stadium.
“It was a good win for the kids,” Heavener Coach John Thompson said. “The kids went in and played like they were supposed to. They played like they wanted to win. They started out that way, and they never let up. It was the best game we've played this year.”
The bad news is that the Wolves have to wait a week before getting to play again. For the second straight season, the Tahlequah Tigers junior varsity canceled out on them.

Poteau golfer wins OJGT State Tournament title

October 19, 2011

Poteau Lady Pirate sophomore golfer Hannah Ward won the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tournament of Champions last weekend at Tulsa's Page Belcher. She competed against the top 27 young female golfers in the state, and came out on top with a score of 75-76—151.
Needless to say, it was a unique experience for the sophomore golfer.
“I was thrilled to win the tournament this weekend,” Ward said. “I was very surprised to win. I went into the tournament with a positive attitude and determination to stay focused. My greatest fear was that I would get frustrated and give up, but I didn't.”


October 19, 2011

In Tuesday's edition, incorrect information appeared in the story about the Heavener cross country runners participating at the Class 3A Regional Meet.
This year, only the top five teams at the regional meet qualified all their runners to state. Since the Lady Wolves were sixth and the Wolves seventh, they did not make state as a complete team.
Only one Heavener runner, Jose Farias, qualified for this weekend's Class 3A State Meet at 2 p.m. Saturday at Shawnee's Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center.

Poteau Bandit League teams sweep Stilwell

October 19, 2011

STILWELL — The third-grade, fourth-grade and sixth-grade Poteau Bandit League teams posted wins Saturday in Stilwell.
The third-grade defeated Stilwell 6-0 as Colton Williamson scored on the third play of the game, a 61-yard scamper to pay dirt. From there, it was a defensive tussle — and it was defense which iced the game for Poteau.
Jordan Tom recovered a Stilwell fumble which was caused by Jacques Adams with 1:27 left to play, and Poteau ran out the clock.

Another District C-4 showdown for Arkoma Mustangs — this week, it's Webbers Falls Warriors

October 19, 2011

Last week, the Arkoma Mustangs, although slow starting, pulled away from the Midway Chargers to end up mercy ruling them 86-36 last Friday night at home in a battle of District C-4 heavyweights.
“It was back and forth,” Arkoma Coach Mark Weatherton said. “They were stuffing it down our throats. It was only 30-28 in the second quarter, and I was nervous. We then reeled off 42 straight points, and then I felt better. We played a good game, and it was nice to get a big win like that over a pretty good team.”

Spiro in must-win situation Thursday night at Valliant

October 19, 2011

The Spiro Bulldogs made it all the way to the Class 3A state quarterfinals a season ago. If they want to even think about postseason play this season, they must win out.
The first of those games for Spiro (3-4, 2-2 in District 3A-8) will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday on the road against Valliant (5-2, 2-2) in a battle of Bulldogs.
Spiro lost 34-18 to the district-leading Seminole Chieftains last week at McClain Stadium. It was a game in which the ’Dogs were their own worse enemy.
