VAN BUREN, Ark. â€” It was a rough night on the gridiron for the Poteau Pirates freshmen football team and the Pansy Kidd Middle School teams on Tuesday.
The Pirate freshmen were shut out 24-0 by the Van Buren Pointers to drop to 0-3 on the season.
The eighth-grade Raiders suffered a 43-22 loss to the Pointers in a game much closer than the score indicates.
The seventh-grade Raiders fell 14-6 to Van Buren.
The freshmen will return to action at 8 p.m. Sept. 26 at Costner Stadium against the Muldrow Bulldogs.
MENA, Ark. â€” Three Heavener High School cross country runners medaled at Tuesday's Mena Invitational 5k run.

Heavener had one other runner participate in Tuesday's event. Frank Cruz ran the course in 20:02 to just miss out on medalling.
The snakes are on the move right now. Oklahomaâ€™s western diamondback rattlesnakes start making moves toward community dens. They generally seek out a cave or rocky recess where they will hibernate for the winter.
Just last week, the mom of one of my ball players got bit by one of those poisonous slithering creatures; she never saw it, either, but she sure felt the bite afterward.
She spent several hours at the emergency room.
