TALIHINA â it was indeed a happy homecoming for Class Aâs third-ranked Talihina Golden Tigers on Friday night at Doc Robinson Stadium as they routed the Quinton Savages 54-12 in a District A-6 contest.
In the post game huddle two things were said. Senior lineman Mark Garner said, âI have never been part of that bad of a beat down before. We played very strong.â
Poteau coach Greg Werner said, âWe are starting to peak at the right time. We need to have another strong week of practice next week for we are going to play for the whole bag of marbles against Fort Gibson.â
The Pirates crushed the Sallisaw Black Diamonds by the score of 48-14 Friday night at Costner Stadium.
SPIRO â Led by D.T Nealâs four touchdowns, the Spiro Bulldogs downed the Heavener Wolves 46-14 on Spiroâs homecoming night Friday night at McClain Stadium.
PAOLI â There are no more winless teams in LeFlore County on the gridiron. The Bokoshe Tigers got their first win of the 2014 season as well as in District C-4 play Friday night, downing the Paoli Pugs 28-6.
OK, I was just kidding about riding a bull. We went to the Professional Bull Riders event Satuday night during the final day of the 2014 BalloonFest. They had some big, mean, nasty bulls the professionals had a tough time riding. When you see it up close and watch those guys get slung to the ground that hard, I just couldnât even dream of getting on one of those dudes behind that gate in that chute. It would really take a man with nerves of steel to be a bull rider.
Poteau coach Greg Wernerâs Pirates took care of the first of three big District 4A-4 games last week, routing Broken Bow 54-7. The 12th-ranked Pirates (4-3, 3-1 in district play) will play the second of the three big games at 7:30 p.m. Friday when they entertain the ninth-ranked Sallisaw Black Diamonds (5-2, 3-1) at Costner Stadium.
When the Heavener Wolves (2-5 overall, 1-3 in District 3A-8) travels to meet the Spiro Bulldogs (4-2, 1-2) at 7 p.m. Friday at McClain Stadium, playoff ramifications will be at stake. However, the Wolves will be slightly undermanned.
The Wolves will be without 10 starters for tonightâs game due to them serving one-game suspensions for leaving the bench during the game-ending scrum during last weekâs home game with the Roland Rangers.

After having a four-game homestand from Sept. 19 through Oct. 10, the Pocola Indians (2-5, 1-2 in District 2A-6) will play their final home game of the season at 7 p.m. Friday against the 13th-ranked Vian Wolverines (4-3, 2-1) on Senior Night at John Carter Field.
âI've got a great group of seniors,â Pocola coach Rick Lang said. âI know the caliber of kids these seniors are. The season hasn't gone the way we would have liked so far, but there's no quit in them. They've given it everything they've got."
