Spiro, Heavener in LCT Junior High Tournament winner's-bracket finals; 2013 champion will be crowned tonight

September 12, 2013

Then there were two — two teams undefeated, that is, in the 2013 LeFlore County Junior High Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament, which is taking place at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
Spiro and Heavener will play in the winner's-bracket final at 5 today for the right to get to the 7:20 p.m. championship game, where that team must be beaten twice — which would mean that the 8:30 p.m. if-game will be necessary.
Spiro beat Poteau/Pansy Kidd Middle School, while Heavener got past Wister in the two championship semifinals Tuesday night.

Rivals Bokoshe, Arkoma meet in District C-4 opener Friday night

September 11, 2013

In the life of 8-man football, normally the season opener is about the only tune-up before district play begins. Such was the case for the Bokoshe Tigers and the Arkoma Mustangs.
Both county teams played their lone non-district game before District C-4 begins this week, and against each other no less as the LeFlore County 8-Man Rivaly is renewed.

Panama looks to continue momentum with home game with Roland

September 11, 2013

It was about as perfect a season opener as one could hope for the Panama Razorbacks on Thursday night in their 34-0 win over the Gore Pirates at George Ollie Stadium.
“The thing we stressed is that it was a very clean game for us,” Panama coach Brandon Ellis said.
“We only had two penalties, and they were late in the game. We worked on some things in that game that we needed to work on.”
However, that was then, and the Roland Rangers are now as the Sequoyah County visitors come to George Ollie Stadium for a 7:30 p.m. Friday kickoff.

Quarterback controversy at OU, and Church Golf League

September 11, 2013

Do the Oklahoma Sooners have a quarterback controversy? Trevor Knight started and won his second straight game, but he failed to convert when the Sooners twice got deep in the red zone. However, the fickled Sooner fans at E.K. Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium began to yell, “We want Bell!”
Well, they got him, and he fared no better, even though the Sooners were in an ultra-slow motion offensive style of play with a nine-point advantage.
Do the true Sooner fans remember that Bell personally lost the Kansas State game as he fumbled the ball twice?
