Since this is the last in a long line of Poteau-Hilldale games, the Hornets were always known as a 3-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust kind of team. Poteau Coach Jeff Broyles commented earlier in the week how Hilldale quarterback Dalton Cunningham was similar to former Florida Gator QB Tim Tebow for his running prowess. Cunningham might well be, but without a doubt his strong right arm was what dismantled the Poteau Pirates in their District 4A-4 opener Friday night at Costner Stadium.
Cunningham threw four touchdown passes of 99, 80, 33 and 67 yards as the Hornets stung the Pirates 42-16.
ARKOMA â€” The Arkoma Mustangs, led by quarterback Christian Davis, defeated the Bluejacket Chieftains 44-18 Friday night in a District C-4 contest.
BOKOSHE â€” It was a dramatic finish, but the Bokoshe Tigers won their first game of the season as well as for new coach, Tyler Massey, as they held on to knock off Eagle Point Christian Academy 48-42 Friday night.
ANTLERS â€” The Talihina Golden Tigers continue to roll on. They routed the Antlers Bearcats 41-6 Friday night in their final non-District 2A-6 contest of the year.
HEAVENER â€” The Hartshorne Miners made sure it was not going to be a Happy Homecoming for the Heavener Wolves Friday night at Harvey Stadium in the District 2A-6 opener for both teams.
After a close first half, the Miners pulled away for a 41-25 win over the Wolves.
PANAMA â€” The Wilburton Diggers spoiled the 2011 Homecoming festivities for the Panama Razorbacks Friday night at George Ollie Stadium by posting a 28-7 victory.
POCOLA â€” After last week's devastating injury to quaterback Devon Johnson, the Pocola Indians knew they faced a tough test against Vian for Homecoming.
That's just what they got, a 75-6 drubbing at the hands of the Wolverines in the District 2A-6 opener for both teams Friday night at John Carter Field.
IDABEL â€” The Spiro Bulldogs struggled with turnovers as they suffered a 23-6 loss at the hands of the Idabel Warriors Friday night in the District 3A-8 opener for both teams.
MULDROW â€” The Poteau Pirates freshmen football team got their first win in three tries as they blanked the Muldrow Bulldogs 27-0 Thursday night.
It was also a successful outing for the Pansy Kidd Middle School teams as they, too, posted victories over the â€™Dogs. The eighth-graders won 28-8 and the seventh-graders nipped Muldrow 14-6.
WISTER â€” The Wister Wildcats baseball team began its first step toward a four-peat as far as trips to state are concerned.
Friday afternoon in the Class A District Tournament, the â€™Cats handled the Crowder Demons 17-0 in three innings to win the title.
The Wildcats pretty much dominated their two games on Thursday, beating Crowder 10-0 and Howe 16-1.
The Lions were the first team eliminated from the tournament, losing a hard-fought 10-8 game to the Demons.
