Poteau opens District 4A-4 play by entertaining archrival Sallisaw tonight; Pirate fans asked to help 'red out' Black Diamonds

September 21, 2012

When anyone enters the Poteau Pirates football team's locker room, on the wall are several team goals. No. 8 — Beat Sallisaw. No. 9 — Go undefeated at home. If the Pirates achieve goal No. 9 tonight at Costner Stadium, it means the Pirates also achieved goal No. 8.
The Pirates (3-0) will welcome the archrival Black Diamonds (2-1) to town to open District 4A-4 play at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Costner Stadium.
“It's nice to be home,” said Greg Werner, Poteau's new coach. “It's going to be special because this will probably be the largest crowd these players are going to play in front of.”

Pocola get chance to knock off No. 1 Vian in District 2A-6 opener tonight

The Indians and Class 2A's top-ranked Wolverines will open District 2A-6 play at 7:30 p.m. tonight at John Carter Field.

Bokoshe picker wins Week 3 PDN contest

September 21, 2012

Ches Brown of Bokoshe was the Week 3 winner of The Poteau Daily News' Pigskin Picks contest.
Brown successfully picked 10 of the 12 games, and was actually tied with a 10-2 record with other pickers.
However, Brown won the tiebreaker as he was closest to picking the final score of the Tulsa Webster-Poteau game from last week, which was won by the Pirates 21-0. Since Brown's prediction was closest to the actual final score, Brown got the nod as the winner and earned $25.
Entries for this week's contest must be in by 5 p.m. this afternoon.

Heartbreak in Greenwood

September 21, 2012

Our Poteau Bandit League's fourth-grade team was in an exciting game Saturday in Greenwood, Ark. The Pirates scored on the opening drive, which was capped by Cole Hensley's 10-yard touchdown run. Colton Williamson's conversion was good, but was called back due to a holding penalty, so Poteau stayed ahead 6-0.
Two Greenwood possessions later, the host team scored and made its PAT to take an 8-6 lead. By the way, kicking an extra point is worth two points in Bandit League play.
