Poteau’s slow start dooms Pirates in Thursday night’s loss to Alma

September 6, 2014

The Poteau Pirates did the one thing they feared doing the most, and that was to get behind early against the Alma [Ark.] Airedales in Thursday night’s Hooten’s Classic at Mayo-Thompson Stadium at Fort Smith Northside High School. It seem like they were down 15-0 before the last cord of the national anthem had faded into the ozone layer.
Alma scored two touchdowns on an extremely short field in the opening period.
Too, the Pirates looked good on two drives of 15 and 14 plays, but when the Pirates got close to Alma’s end zone, they lost their rhythm. Also, Alma played strong defense.

Arkoma too much for Bokoshe

September 6, 2014

The latest installment of the LeFlore County 8-man rivalry went the way of the visiting Arkoma Mustangs as they corralled the homestanding Bokoshe Tigers 46-0 Friday night at Tiger Stadium in a game ended by the mercy rule with 9:54 left in the third quarter.
The Tigers started on offense but their drive stalled after four plays, and the Mustangs took possession of the ball at the Bokoshe 33-yard line.
The Mustangs ran the simplest of base plays as Landin Duzan followed his trap block all the way home for a 33 yard TD. Dakotah Roam added the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.

Sallisaw-Central handles Pocola Indians

September 6, 2014

The Sallisaw-Central Tigers pounded the Pocola Indians 48-22 in the 2014 opener for both teams Friday night at Sallisaw-Central High School.
The Indians got the ball on their own 49-yard line to start the game. They promptly marched down the field for a touchdown. Quarterback Kyler Ree hit Corey Edwards for a 14-yard pitch-and-catch, which gave Pocola its only lead of the half at 6-0.
The Tigers’ offense was in tune this night scoring on drives of 69, 62, 26 and 81 yards rolling to a 34-6 halftime lead.

Arkoma, Bokoshe renew county 8-man rivalry; Heavener, Pocola, Spiro open season tonight in road games

September 5, 2014

The latest installment of the LeFlore County 8-man battle between the Arkoma Mustangs and the Bokoshe Tigers will take place at 7:30 tonight in Bokoshe.
“It's a big game,” Arkoma coach Mark Weatherton said. “It's our closest game we're going to have. It's the only team in the county who plays 8-man ball like we do. It's for bragging rights. Even though it's not for a district win, it's still for bragging rights, and we want to keep them. We want to come out fired up and get it done Friday night.”

Poteau hangs tough with Alma in Hooten’s Classic

September 5, 2014

Although the Poteau Pirates football team held its own against Arkansas’ Class 6A Alma Airedales, it was one key thing which coach Greg Werner was fearful of which helped put the Pirates in an early hole in the 2014 season opener in the Hooten’s Classic on Thursday night at Mayo-Thompson Stadium at Fort Smith [Ark.] Northside High School. That was a slow start.
The Pirates fell 28-0 to the Airedales.
