The Arkoma Mustangs football team wants to end its home season on a positive note as the Mustangs will play their home finale against Southwest Christian Academy at 7 p.m. Friday at Mustang Field. The game time was moved up 30 minutes to help SCA get home faster since a lot of their athletes will take the ACT test Saturday morning at home in Norman.
The Mustangs (3-5) saw their two-game winning streak snapped Thursday night with a 64-18 loss to Thackerville, which is leading District C-4. The final score really did not indicate just how well offensively Arkoma played.
GREENWOOD, Ark. â€” The Poteau Bandit League football teams split their four games to end the regular season on Saturday.
The fifth-grade (33-0) and third-grade teams (18-0) posted wins, while the sixth-grade (22-14) and fourth-grade squads (24-0) lost their games.
BOKOSHE â€” After a two week hiatus from the football field, the Bokoshe Tigers were hoping to return to action this week in a battle of Tigers at Maud. However, that Tiger tussle will have to wait until next year.
For the second straight District C-4 game, the Tigers (1-7 overall, 0-6 in district play) will have to forfeit to Maud (5-3, 3-3) due to lack of players.
â€śI think we'd have enough to play a basketball game because you only need eight players for that,â€ť said Tyler Massey, Bokoshe's second-year coach. â€śBut we just don't have enough for a football game.â€ť
Sunday Couple Scrambles at Wolf Ridge Golf Course will take place at 2 p.m. Sundays. The entry fee is $15 per person for the nine-hole weekly event.

The second annual Jugz-N-Nutz 7-3 coed softball tournament will take place Saturday at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
The entry fee is $150 per team.
The championship team will receive bats and t-shirts, the runners-up will receive a dozen softballs and t-shirts and the Most Valuable Player, both male and female, will receive a plaque and a t-shirt.
TULSA â€” The streak continues for the Poteau High School cross-country teams.
Saturday afternoon at the Class 4A Regional Meet at Oral Roberts University, the Lady Pirates and the Pirates each finished in the top seven in team standings to make the Class 4A State Meet, which will be at 10 a.m. Oct. 27 at Edmond Santa Fe High School.
Just after the Poteau Pirates had perhaps their best football game of the year against the Muldrow Bulldogs Thursday night at Costner Stadium, a bit of bad news came across the internet that might throw a major glitch into their playoff run. Broken Bow defeated the Sallisaw Black Diamonds by the score of 35-28. That means that if the Pirates even win out, more than likely the final two playoff berths from District 4A-4 will be decided by district points, which are determined by how many points a team wins or loses by each week during district play.
