It was hot and humid for the Poteau Pirates and the Heavener Wolves in their football scrimmage Friday night at Heavenerâ€™s Harvey Stadium.
Both teams appeared to be primed for their county rivals, even though it was listed as a scrimmage.
The Wolves are being led by a new coach Sam Hembree, a home grown Wolf.
Both teams ran 12-play series for both first and second units.
One could sense an upbeat attitude by the Wolves. Both teams played on level ground for about the first 40 plays, but at that point the depth of the Pirates began to come to the forefront.
TULSA â€” The Arkoma Mustangs football team lit up the scoreboard in its first preseason scrimmage of the 2014 season Friday night against host Wright Christian and Tulsa Regent Prep, which is dropping down to 8-man football.
The Mustangs scored seven touchdowns. Two players had a pair of TD runs, Dakota Roam scored on runs of 5 and 20 yards, while Aaron Parsons had two 5-yard scampers.
Seth Key, who caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Harmon, threw a 5-yard TD pass to Tanner Sanders.
Talon Woolsey had the other score on a 20-yard run.

In this past weekendâ€™s Northeastern State University Tournament in Tahlequah, the Lady Pirates went 1-3 in games on Friday â€” beating Okmulgee 14-3, but losing to 3-1 to Locust Grove, 5-1 to Sallisaw and 10-0 to host Tahlequah. On Saturday, Poteau suffered a 14-1 loss to Owasso and a 9-3 setback against Henryetta.
