NORMAN â€” Saturday night's game at Owen Field against the Ball State Cardinals could have been a scary game. For starters, the Cardinals entered with only one loss, and beat Big 10 opponent Indiana (coached by former Oklahoma Sooner Assistant Coach Kevin Wilson) â€” and not to mention it was the last game before the annual Red River Shootout, which will be at 11 a.m. this Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
STILLWATER â€” The Poteau and Heavener high school cross country runners participated in the 75th annual Oklahoma State Jamboree Saturday morning.
In the Class 4A-5A girls division, the Poteau Lady Pirates were 15th with 405 points.
Deven Bond led the way for the Lady Pirates as she was 46th (13:12.95), followed by Sheridan Hoyer in 51st (13:20.72), Colleen Peterson in 104th (14:22.57), Tabitha Waldrop in 131st (15:15.66), Samantha Galetka in 135th (15:24.11), Shandee Staton in 147th (16:05.89) and Katie Piquet in 153rd (16:34.18).
RED OAK â€” The Whitesboro Bulldogs baseball team was hoping to make it two straight fall seasons in which it ended the season at the Class B State Tournament. Unfortunately, it didn't happen for them this fall.
The Bulldogs lost their Class B Regional Tournament opener 17-0 to the host Red Oak Eagles Thursday afternoon, then lost an elimination game to the Stuart Hornets Friday afternoon.
The Bulldogs end the season at 13-15.
TULSA â€” The Poteau Pirates made a furious charge in the final quarter to level the score at 36-all, but the Tulsa Webster Warriors drove the field with less than two minutes to play to pull out the 42-36 victory in Friday night's District 4A-4 contest.
TALIHINA â€” The Talihina Golden Tigers celebrated Homecoming with a 45-10 win over the Panama Razorbacks Friday night at Doc Robinson Stadium in a District 2A-6 game.
ARKOMA â€” The Arkoma Mustangs faced the Eagle Point Christian Eagles Friday night and easily handled them running away with a 45-0 Homecoming win.
SPIRO â€” The Spiro Bulldogs ended their three-game losing streak with a 34-19 home victory over the Eufaula Ironheads Friday night at McClain Stadium in a District 3A-8 contest.
CLAREMORE â€” It was a rough night for the Bokoshe Tigers as they returned to District C-4 play.
The Tigers suffered a 48-0 loss to Claremore Christian.
VIAN â€” The Vian Wolverines showed the Heavener Wolves why they are ranked sixth in the Class 2A Poll Friday night as the Wolverines handled the Wolves 55-0 in a District 2A-6 contest.
WILBURTON â€” Sometimes extra points are taken for granted. The Pocola Indians may not think that way from now on.
The Indians missed an extra point, then tried to make up for that with a two-point conversion attempt on the second score and missed it. Thus, they suffered a 14-13 loss to the Wilburton Diggers Friday night in a District 2A-6 game.
