Van Buren Pointers use strong second half to down Poteau Pirates

September 13, 2014

If Poteau was to stay in the game, the Pirates had to perform at their max level. One major factor in the game would have to be the Pirates were issued 13 penalties for 106 yards. Instead of going 10 yards for first downs, most of the time they faced first-and-big yard.
The host Van Buren [Ark.] Pointers scored four second half touchdowns to post the 41-8 victory.

Poteau JV gets past Pocola

September 13, 2014

Mother Nature played a trick on both teams, giving them a cold drizzle all game long, helping both teams to have numerous fumbles and errors handling the ball. The Indians were dealt a devastating blow as Senior De'Aundre Wilkins left the game late in the second quarter with an ankle injury.
The Poteau Pirates junior varsity saw three true freshman rise in value, Juan Martinez, Matthew Alvardo and Jamison Shackleford, as they all appeared skilled and matured beyond their tender age.
