Senior tailback/linebacker says Poteau focused on Cascia Hall

October 15, 2013

Poteau second-year coach Greg Werner called last week's road game at Fort Gibson “ ... for every kid playing for us that this is biggest football game they will have ever played in.” The Pirates played as such, pulling out a 42-28 victory over the Tigers.
“It was pretty big,” senior tailback/linebacker Cord Lawrence said about the victory. “It was really great that we won. It was a tough game. It has set us up for something big.”

Poteau freshmen fall short against Broken Bow; JV team did not play; PKMS games canceled due to wet fields

October 15, 2013

BROKEN BOW — The Poteau Pirates freshmen football team came up a bit short against the Broken Bow Savages, losing 14-12 Monday night at Memorial Stadium.
There was no junior varsity game, and Tuesday's Pansy Kidd Middle School games were canceled at Costner Stadium due to field conditions — namely to keep the field as playable as possible for Thursday night's District 4A-4 showdown with Tulsa Cascia Hall.
“This is the second time in 25 years that I've canceled junior high games,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said.

Arkansas Razorbacks lay an egg on homecoming

October 15, 2013

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — I'm sure there are some college football fans in LeFlore County who are fans of the Oklahoma Sooners who believe their team laid an egg Saturday at the Cotton Bowl against Texas.
This humble sports writer also saw an egg laid — a homecoming egg at that — Saturday at Frank Broyles Field at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The Arkansas Razorbacks, except for the first half of the first quarter, did little right as they suffered a 52-7 homecoming loss to Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks.

No teams made it to state this fall on the diamond; Poteau softball coach gets 300th coaching win during LCT

October 14, 2013

For the first time in my four falls here at sports editor, there is no state tournament on the fast-pitch softball or fall baseball diamonds for LeFlore County. The Poteau Lady Pirates had the last chance, but for the third straight fall they lost in the regional finals to see their season end.
However, the Poteau season was still a very good one, amassing a 28-10 record, the team's fifth straight county title and 11th straight district title. Senior ace RaeLynn Caldwell eclipsed the 300-strikeout plateau this season during last week's Class 4A Regional Tournament.
