The Pocola Indians football team has had a rough two-game road trip the last two weeks, losing 29-20 to the Quinton Savages and 59-0 to the Vian Wolverines in the District 2A-6 opener.
Now, the Indians (1-3 overall, 0-1 in district play) will return to the friendly confines of John Carter Field for a homecoming district game against the Hugo Buffaloes (4-0, 0-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The Indians are a wounded bunch right now, which does not help the team's efforts at the present time.
On Sept. 23, 2011, the Spiro Bulldogs went to Idabel and were stunned by the homestanding Warriors 23-6. The same two teams will meet at the same site at 7:30 p.m. Friday when the â€™Dogs (3-1, 1-0 in District 3A-8) visit the Warriors (0-4, 0-1).
GREENWOOD, Ark. â€” The Poteau Bandit League teams went 3-1 on the day Saturday against Greenwood Blue.
The sixth-grade team won 26-0. The fourth-graders posted a 22-0 shutout, while the third-graders won 26-6.
Greenwood Blue spoiled the chance at the sweep with a 31-0 win over the Poteau fifth-graders.
The Poteau Bandit League teams will return to action next Saturday on the road against Van Buren (Ark.) White. Games will begin at 10 a.m. with the third-grade contest first, then the fourth-grade, fifth-grade and sixth-grade games to follow.
Carl Albert State College Vikings basketball coach Mike St. John would like to announce his 2013-14 signing class.
Tuesday was the opening day of deer archery and bear archery season. If you have not bought your bear tag, you are out of luck because you must buy it before archery season starts.
I do not agree with us having to buy a tag by a certain date to kill a bear, but that is the rule so I will not buy one. I may try to hunt a bear in the future, and the wildlife department is giving us more of an opportunity to kill one â€” but this year is not the year that I will hunt them.
The word â€śecstaticâ€ť was used by Poteau senior fullback Mason Jones to describe Friday night's 34-9 road win over the archrival Sallisaw Black Diamonds at Perry F. Lattimore Stadium.
â€śI was just ecstatic,â€ť Jones said. â€śI was so pumped. It felt great. I know it was big for me and the other seniors. We had never beaten them. That was a big deal. For the team, it was a good start [in District 4A-4 play] to bigger and better things.â€ť
The Poteau Lady Pirates softball team showed the Roland Lady Rangers it can win with both offensive outbursts and pitching in Tuesday afternoon's Class 4A District Tournament.
The Lady Pirates used a 12-run first inning to take the opener 14-0 in a three-inning run-rule contest.
However, Poteau used the 20-strikeout performance of senior ace RaeLynn Caldwell and one three-run inning to win the nightcap 3-0.
HEAVENER â€” A late rally lifted the Heavener Lady Wolves to a 3-2 victory over the Pocola Lady Indians in a regional-tournament tune-up for both teams on Tuesday afternoon.
It's been a while since the phrase, â€śa big gameâ€ť has been uttered in Panama other than against archrival Pocola. That phrase is being said this week.
The Razorbacks (3-1, 1-0 in District 2A-6) will entertain the Hartshorne Miners (3-1, 1-0) at 7:30 p.m. Friday at George Ollie Stadium.
â€śIt's big,â€ť Panama coach Brandon Ellis said. â€śWe've been telling the kids all week that this will be the biggest game they've ever played in. We've stressed that all week.â€ť
