In the only game where LeFlore County teams met, the Bulldogs blanked the Wildcats 2-0.
In the middle game, the â€™Dogs' rally came up short as they were outlasted 15-11 by the Tigers, who then lost the final game of the three-way as the â€™Cats beat them 7-2.
Monday Games Canceled Due to Wet Fields
TULSA â€” The Poteau High School cross country teams competed Saturday at the Oral Roberts University Invitational, put on by Tulsa Bishop Kelley High School, amidst perhaps the best field of runners they've seen to this point in the season.
TULSA â€” After a tough season-opening loss Sept. 1 on the road against Iowa State, the Tulsa Golden Hurricane football team has made it 2-for-2 in home games, and both in dominating fashion.
After winning their home opener Sept. 8 against Tulane, the Golden Hurricane looked even more impressive in a 66-16 rout of the Nicholls State Colonels Saturday night at Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. â€” If the Arkansas Razorbacks were going to upset the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide Saturday afternoon at Franks Broyles Field at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, one thing they couldn't afford to do was to get down early, which is exactly what the Hogs did. The Tide built a 24-0 halftime lead and never looked back rolling the Tyler Wilson-less Hogs 52-0.
â€śThere were times in this game that everyone was pulling they weight, but sometimes we were pulling in different directions,â€ť said Greg Werner, Poteau's new coach, after the Pirates pulled out a 21-0 home-opening victory the Tulsa Webster Warriors Friday night at Costner Stadium. â€śThe Poteau Pirates are a band of brothers and we need to pick each other up when there is a misplay. We had way too many turnovers to be competative next week. Sallisaw is a very good team. We must have a great week of work if we expect to compete.â€ť
HEAVENER â€” The Heavener Wolves rode a big third quarter to a 31-21 homecoming victory over the Gore Pirates Friday night at Harvey Stadium.
ARKOMA â€” The Arkoma Mustangs could not overcome the powerful Maud Tigers in their district opener Friday night falling by mercy rule 56-6.
POCOLA â€” After two road games to open the 2012 football season, the Pocola Indians were hoping to get a home win for the first time this year. The Quinton Savages had other ideas.
The visiting Savages came to John Carter Field on Friday night and left with a 30-14 win over the Indians.
SASAKWA â€” The Bokoshe Tigers had two rough home games to begin the season, and they were hoping their luck would change on a visiting football field. Unfortunately for the Tigers, it didn't.
The homestanding Sasakwa Vikings mercy ruled the Tigers 46-0 Friday night.
