Talihina to get stiffest test entire season in tonight's scrimmage at Vian

August 24, 2012

For the last two years, the Talihina Golden Tigers and the Vian Wolverines were District 2A-6 rivals. Now, the Golden Tigers are back down in Class A, and won't have to worry about the Wolverines — at least in the regular season.
However, the two teams will scrimmage each other at 6 p.m. tonight in Vian in what will likely be the stiffest test the Tigers will see all regular season long.

All the reports I've been getting from all the local anglers at Wister is that fishing is really good, and big fish are being caught — which should bode well for Saturday's tournament participants.

August 23, 2012

It's hard to think that there's a finality in preseason games, but that's the case for the Poteau Pirates football team.
Poteau's new coach, Greg Werner, said that tonight's 6 p.m. scrimmage at Costner Stadium against Mena, Ark., is an important one for many reasons.
“This is it,” Werner said. “We've got to get all these things taken care of now. We're behind, so maybe we can get some things learned and get some things figured out.”
