It was a rough week for my Poteau third-grade Bandit League football team, but it's been a fun time.
Three of our four teams will be in action Saturday in Stilwell, with the sixth-grade game beginning at 2 p.m., followed by the third-grade contest at 3 p.m. and the fourth-grade game at 4 p.m. There will not be a fifth-grade contest this week. The sixth-graders will put their undefeated streak on the line as they have not lost a game in their Bandit League careers.
Last week, the Poteau Pirates got a big District 4A-4 win as they celebrated homecoming with a 24-0 win over the Stilwell Indians at Costner Stadium.
â€śEspecially after the last three weeks, we needed it (the win over Stilwell),â€ť Poteau Coach Jeff Broyles said. â€śAnd I liked the way in which we did win. We really felt like we really dominated the game. I was pleased.â€ť
BROKEN BOW â€” It was a â€śKeyâ€ť victory for the Poteau Pirate freshmen football team Tuesday night, as in Jordan Key.
Key rushed for three touchdowns, scored on a two-point conversion and helped the defensive unit out in a 20-14 victory over the Broken Bow Savages at Memorial Stadium.
The Pansy Kidd Middle School football teams split their home games with Broken Bow Tuesday night at Costner Stadium.
The eighth-grade Raiders posted a 33-8 rout of the Savages, but the seventh-graders fell 30-16.
Friday is opening day for the 2011 youth gun hunt. I know of a bunch of kids who have been looking forward to this day for quite a long time. Iâ€™ve got a full agenda for the weekend that includes my boys and some of my ball players.
OKLAHOMA CITY â€” There were many naysayers out in the Oklahoma high school softball world which doubted the Panama Lady Razorbacks would be the one team holding the Class 2A State Tournament championship trophy Saturday afternoon at Hall of Fame Stadium. But holding the trophy they were.
The Lady â€™Backs, behind the pitching of Taylor Eaves, blanked the Oktaha Lady Tigers 1-0 in the Class 2A State Tournament title game.
