Sophomore running back had a hold on Poteau's win over Clinton; send off, caravan slated for Saturday

November 29, 2013

What Poteau sophomore runinng back Roger Barcheers has done his first two years has been rather awesome, especially since he was the Freshman of the Year on the 2012 All-Arklahoma Football Team.
However, Barcheers was in the spotlight, somewhat that is, for his ability to hold the ball for Poteau senior place-kicker Jace Pitchford. Thanks to the right hold, Pitchford kicked the game-winning field goal with four seconds left to lift the Pirates to a 10-7 Class 4A state quarterfinal victory over defending state champion Clinton at Costner Stadium.

Gun season is in full swing; several local hunters had successful outings

November 27, 2013

The online deer check station has been a hotspot this year. The numbers are looking good — a lot of venison on the table all across the state.
Here’s what has been checked as of Wednesday morning: 56,471 deer, 176 turkey and 42 elk. This year, my family has actually contributed to that number early. My wife, Paula, kept telling me that I sure went out a bunch and never brought home a deer. This year I’ve gotten one, and so has Cash and Koby.

OKC Douglass Trojans up next for Poteau in Class 4A state semifinals; Thursday's practice open to public; send off, caravan slated for Saturday morning

November 26, 2013

I think Friday night's Class 4A state quarterfinal game the Poteau Pirates played against the defending state champion Clinton Red Tornadoes had to be among the best defensive games the Pirates have ever played. The Pirates held the Red Tornadoes to only three first downs in the game, and two of those came on long hail Mary passes. The defending state champs, who are considered to be an outstanding rushing offense, made only 60 yards rushing.

Balanced scoring keys Lady Vikings' win over Redlands Lady Cougars; Redlands men rout Carl Albert State Vikings

Five double-figure scorers and good defensive pressure proved to be the difference for the Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings in their 85-78 win over the Redlands Community College Lady Cougars on Monday night at Mick Thompson Fieldhouse.
Behind constant defensive pressure, the Cougars rolled past the Vikings for a 95-72 win in the second game of Monday night's Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference doubleheader.

The Poteau Pirates will face the Oklahoma City Douglass Trojans at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Hook-Eales Stadium in McAlester. The Trojans edged the Oologah Mustangs 29-25 on Saturday in Oklahoma City.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all; no high school basketball this week

November 26, 2013

I hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving on Thursday, and be safe in journeying to your respective destinations.
As you read this, I will have already made a journey to Enid for my annual six-month medical check-up and to have Thanksgiving with my mom Monday since she can't be here this week as we had originally intended due to unforeseen circumstances.
By the time you read this column, I will have already left — and possibly arrived — in Poteau as I will be back to work today to put out Wednesday's edition.
