If Gore Pirates coaches and fans were hoping to come see a preview of what they'll see when the Pirates and Panama Razorbacks meet at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at George Ollie Stadium in the 2012 season opener, they may be disappointed.
The Hogs will be in a three-way at 6 p.m. tonight at George Ollie Stadium against Sallisaw-Central and Canadian, with admission being soap and towels.
Brandon Ellis, Panama's second-year coach, said the Razorbacks will not do too much so they won't divulge any of next week's game plans for the Pirates.
SPIRO â€” The Spiro Bulldogs will get their final football tune-up before next week's season opener as they will scrimmage the Stilwell Indians at 6 p.m. tonight in Stilwell.
The scrimmage was originally slated to take place at McClain Stadium, but due to a new coach at Stilwell and other things the scrimmage was moved to Stilwell.
Chris Bunch, Spiro's coach, said the â€™Dogs will do a little more than what they did in last week's first scrimmage of the preseason at Tulsa Webster along with Okmulgee.
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 â€” 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.
The Hawghunters Bass Club will have an open tournament beginning at safe light and ending at 3 p.m. Saturday at Ward's Landing on Wister Lake. The entry fee is $80 per boat.
For additional information, call Joe Moon at (479) 651-0410.
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 â€” which should bode well for Saturday's tournament participants.
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.
â€śThis is it,â€ť Werner said. â€śWe'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.â€ť

Summer is officially over, and school starts this week. This means that dove season is just around the corner, and archery season is not far behind that. With this in mind, be sure that you and your kids have taken the hunter safety course. There is one scheduled this weekend at the Kiamichi Technology Center in Poteau at 8 a.m. Saturday. Donâ€™t waste time; the season will begin before you know it! Another thing you need to be aware of are the Oklahoma Free Hunting Days are taking place Sept. 1-2, during which Oklahoma residents do not need a hunting license or HIP permit to go afield.
