Five football teams will see postseason action next week

November 8, 2013

There will be five LeFlore County high school football teams make the postseason parade next week.
As I wrote this, two of them — Poteau (Class 4A) and Talihina (Class A) — will be home. Panama (Class 2A) will visit Okemah, while it was uncertain until late Friday night not only who but where Spiro (Class 3A) and Arkoma (Class C) would wind up in the playoffs.

The Adams family indeed had a happy Halloween

November 8, 2013

I hope you had a great Halloween. The Adams family did.
We stayed homed and scared kids as well as handed out candy. We went through four bags of candy, and we were out by 8 p.m. There were kids all over the neighborhood, and it keeps getting bigger each year. I heard that one house had a fire and was serving up hot dogs, too. Next year, I'm going to have to step up my game.
On Saturday, we went to “The Wilson Family Fall Festival.” There were more than 100 people there.
I made 15 pounds of deer chili and brought 40 quarter-pound hot dogs.

Talihina hoping for perfect regular season in road game tonight against Gore Pirates

November 8, 2013

Last week, the Talihina Golden Tigers routed the Savanna Bulldogs 43-6 to claim the top seed from District A-6.
“We played for the district championship and an undefeated season,” Talihina coach Kelly Gravitt said. “It was the best the Golden Tigers have played since I've been here. We were sharp, and were ready in all aspects of the game. The kids were on cue.”'
So, one might think when the Golden Tigers (9-0 overall, 5-0 in district play) travels to face the Gore Pirates (2-7, 2-3) at 7:30 tonight that there might not be a lot on the line for Talihina. Think again.

Bokoshe looks for first district win tonight to end season on high note; Tigers travel to Yukon to meet SW Covenant

November 8, 2013

All the Bokoshe Tigers football team wants is a District C-4 win before 2013 comes to and end. Tonight will be their last shot when the Tigers (1-7 overall, 0-6 in district play) make the long journey to Yukon to meet the Southwest Covenant Patriots (3-4, 3-3) at 7:30 p.m.
“It would be big for our four seniors to go out with a district win,” Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray said. “The kids have worked hard all year long and have improved themselves. I do see better things down the road, but to win a district game in as tough a district as we're in it would be big.”

Pocola looks to end season with road win tonight at Mountainburg

November 8, 2013

A sports adage says that only one team can win its final game — the one that wins a state championship.
While there's no state championship at stake tonight when the Pocola Indians (2-7) travel to meet Mountainburg, Ark., to end their season, they can win their final game — which would be huge for the program.

Arkoma seeks home playoff game with win Friday night over Webbers Falls Warriors

November 8, 2013

The adage, “The shortest distance between two points is a straight line,” somewhat holds true Friday night for the Arkoma Mustangs football team.
The Mustangs (5-3 overall, 4-2 in District C-4) can have a home playoff game with a win Friday night against the Webbers Falls Warriors (4-4, 3-3) when they meet for Senior Night at 7:30 p.m. at Mustang Field. However, if a loss occurs, then Arkoma's playoff scenario becomes much more complicated.

Spiro goes for nine straight wins, perfect district record Friday night against Checotah

November 8, 2013

The only blemish on the Spiro Bulldogs' football season this year was a 32-14 season-opening loss to the Vian Wolverines. The ’Dogs hope it stays that way tonight.
The Bulldogs (8-1, 6-0 in District 3A-8) will travel to meet the Checotah Wildcats (8-1, 5-1) at 7:30 p.m. Friday night at Ogle Field. If Spiro wins, the ’Dogs will be the district champion outright and get two home playoff games. A loss may deny them a home playoff game altogether.
