For the first time in four seasons, there's going to be an 11th game for the Poteau Pirates football team.
The Pirates (9-1) will entertain the Cleveland Tigers (5-5) at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Costner Stadium.
The Pirates sealed up a home playoff game in last week's 44-14 road win over the Tulsa Rogers Ropers at S.E. Williams Stadium in Tulsa.
SPIRO â All the Spiro Bulldogs had to do last week was beat the Checotah Wildcats on their own Ogle Field grass, and the âDogs would have had a nine-game winning streak â and be the District 3A-8 champions. None of that happened as the âCats won 43-28, and knocked the Bulldogs into the No. 3 seed â and a road playoff game at 7:30 tonight against the Hilldale Hornets in Muskogee.
I moved to Poteau on Veterans Day in 1977. The first thing I did was eat an âArlieâ burger from the A&M Food Market. I loved them, and I was hooked on them for life.
The Poteau Pirates clinched a playoff berth with a win over Muldrow a couple of weeks ago. Since that hasn't happened for this senior class, that achievement was a special one.
âIt feels great to be in the playoffs, especially since we worked so hard,â senior lineman Jesse Gollihare said. âWe've prepared ourselves all year for this moment.â
The Talihina Golden Tigers football team wrapped up a perfect regular season and a District A-6 title Friday night with a 48-8 rout of the Gore Pirates. Make no mistake, the Golden Tigers (10-0) are pleased with both goals being accomplished.
However, that's all good, but now it's time to focus on the Class A playoffs, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday against the Stratford Bulldogs (6-4) at Doc Robinson Stadium.
Gun season is fast approaching, Nov. 23-Dec. 8. Donât forget your hunter education training, which is needed before you can hunt. Residents who are age 10 or older must complete hunter education certification training.
Time is running out â and you might need to do it online to get it done in time to hunt. Another last-minute thing you might need is a replacement hunter education card. Go to www.wildlifedepartment.com.

My great nephew, Aiyden Horn, caught a perch on a red worm last week at my dad's pond. Good job, Aiyden.
Have a great week!

WISTER â By the time Tuesday night's high school basketball games ended between the visiting Cameron teams and the host Wister squads, both sides could say that at least part of the night went well.
The Lady Wildcats held off the Lady Yellowjackets to post a 55-52 victory, but the âJackets stung the âCats in the nightcap to win 58-47.
HOWE â It took a while, but the Howe Lions took control of the game and downed the McCurtain Bulldogs 79-32 Tuesday night at the Howe Gym.
The game was close early as the Lions (4-0) led 16-11 after a quarter, but stretched their advantage to 30-19 at halftime.
However, in the third quarter, the Lions clawed the âDogs, using a 27-7 third quarter for a 57-26 lead going into the final period.
