Third-year Poteau football coach Greg Werner was a pretty happy camper after how he saw his Pirates perform in Thursday nightâ€™s final preseason tune-up in a four-way scrimmage with host Tahlequah, Hilldale and Wagoner at Northeastern State University.
The Pirates scored seven times against the other three teams. Dalton Smith had a 6-yard touchdown run and Roger Barcheers a 5-yard TD against the host Tigers.
Smith had a 13-yard scoring run and Elijah Price a 12-yard TD run against the Hornets, while Austin Archey had a 3-yard touchdown run against the Bulldogs.
After a rough outing against the Muldrow Lady Bulldogs 48 hours before, the Poteau Lady Pirates looked sharper â€” and got a win as a result as they blanked the Spiro Lady Bulldogs 4-0 Thursday afternoon.
