The Pocola Indians football team snapped a three-game losing streak last week, beating the Wilburton Diggers 66-27 for its first District 2A-6 victory.
â€śI was so proud of our kids,â€ť Pocola coach Rick Lang said about last week's victory. â€śWe executed on a night when we needed a win. I challenged the kids. They came out and we had 483 yards of offense. They executed â€” and we got to play everybody. It was a great win for us.â€ť
The Arkoma Mustangs were looking to extend their winning streak to four games tonight with a home non-district game against the Boulevard Christian Patriots at Mustang Field. Instead, the locals will have an open date as the Patriots have canceled due to lack of players.
â€śIt kind of worried me when they called us and said that they only had nine players the game before they played Bokoshe [which beat the Patriots last week 54-6],â€ť Arkoma coach Mark Weatherton said. â€śI guess they got some banged up in that game, and the same thing happened last week against Bokoshe.â€ť
When you talk of sports trivia or sport rules, I usually grade out at about 98 percent, while the other two percent of the time I am wrong.
Alston Washburn took his first deer with a bow last week near Panama. He is a student at Wister and likes to crappie fish and deer hunt. Thatâ€™s my kind of guy. Shooting a deer with a bow and arrow is not an easy feat, and it definitely isnâ€™t for everyone. Iâ€™m really proud for him. Good job, Alston!
