The Pansy Kidd Middle School football teams kept their perfect record intact Tuesday with home wins over the Van Buren [Ark.] Butterfield Trail Blazers at Costner Stadium.
The eighth-grade Raiders made it 3-for-3 on the season with an 18-6 victory, right after the seventh-grade Raiders did likewise with a 32-8 win.
Both Raider teams and the Poteau Pirates freshmen will be in a tripleheader of football next Tuesday at Stigler, with games beginning at 5:30 p.m. The three local teams will take a combined undefeated record of 7-0 into Haskell County.
The Talihina Golden Tigers, who are ranked second in the Class A Poll for the second straight week, will get their toughest test so far this young season when they meet the Christian Heritage Academy Crusaders at 7 p.m. Friday in Del City. Both teams are 2-0.
The Golden Tigers won their home opener last Friday night, handling the Antlers Bearcats 52-14 at Doc Robinson Stadium. A season ago, the â€™Cats had a lead on the Tigers as late as the third quarter, but the locals vowed not to let that happen again.
The Bokoshe Tigers football team is hoping the third time will be the charm on their season-beginning, three-game homestand to start the 2014 season.
After the Tigers (0-2) lost to Arkoma and Bowlegs in their first two home games of the season, Bokoshe will try to win the third game of the season Friday night when they entertain Destiny Christian at 7:30 p.m. at Tiger Stadium.
Last Friday nightâ€™s 26-20 loss to the Sallisaw-Central Tigers at George Ollie Stadium was about as devastating as possible, since the Tigers never led until they scored the game-winning touchdown with 10 seconds left.

CROWDER â€” The Leflore Savages baseball team was the only team to see action Monday on the diamond, but unfortunately they came up short twice â€” losing 4-3 to the host Crowder Demons, then fell 10-2 in five innings to the Rattan Rams.
In the loss to Crowder, the Demons broke a 3-all tie with a run in the sixth inning.
In the loss to Rattan, the Rams had a pair of four-run innings in the first and second innings for an 8-0 lead.

When I first heard the news of Adrian Peterson being arrested for child abuse, I thought, it can't get any worse than this â€” and then I got the details of what he did.
He did nothing more than switch his child. A form of discipline that he grew up with and what probably made him the player and the person he is today. He left a few welts on his child's legs.
My goodness, one time my grandmother switched me, and I thought was going to kill me.
Why is everybody getting their panties in a wad about AD for disciplining his child and calling for the reinstatement of Ray Rice?
