With the quirk among schedules for District 2A-6, each team is guaranteed four non-district games.
The luck for the Talihina Golden Tigers is they get to get another non-district game under their belts before entering district play. They will play that last non-District 2A-6 contest at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Antlers.
With Week 4's arrival, most of the LeFlore County teams are now entering district play. The only exception is Talihina, which won't do so until next week. Bokoshe is playing non-district foe Eagle Point Christian Academy, but has played two District C-4 games among its first three games this season.
Poteau will be in its District 4A-4 opener with Hilldale at Costner Stadium, while Spiro will get District 3A-8 play started with a road game at Idabel.
When the Poteau Pirates open District 4A-4 play at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Costner Stadium against the Hilldale Hornets, fans are being asked to wear red to have a â€śRed Outâ€ť affect on the visitors. Senior linebacker Marshall Jones believe such a spirit booster does just that.
The Spiro Bulldogs were on the cusp of being 2-1 entering this week's District 3A-8 opener at Idabel.
Instead, a turnover converted into a game-winning field goal by Roland made the Rangers a 10-7 winner to spoil the â€™Dogs' homecoming game last Friday night at McClain Stadium.
The good thing is the players seemingly have put that game behind them and are focusing on the district opener at 7:30 p.m. this Friday on the road against the Warriors.
