Spiro Bulldogs entertain Eufaula Ironheads Friday night

October 10, 2013

The Spiro Bulldogs were a bit leery going into Idabel last week, based on the fact that two years ago they struggled and left town with a loss.
That didn't happen last week as the ’Dogs handled the Warriors 46-21.
“We did OK,” Spiro coach Chris Bunch said. “We started off sluggish. I don't know if it was the bus ride down, but we started kind of tired. But we ended up pretty good.”
Now, the Bulldogs (4-1, 2-0 in District 3A-8) will look to win for the fifth straight time this season when they entertain the Eufaula Ironheads (2-3, 1-1) at 7:30 p.m. Friday at McClain Stadium.

Baseball, bow season and the youth season

October 10, 2013

Bow season is in full swing now and I have actually got to sit in a stand a couple of times. However, all I have seen so far is a big ol' coon and a coyote. The good thing is that I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the woods and the wildlife that I got to see.

Heavener looks to keep momentum going off Roland overtime victory; Wolves travel to face undefeated Checotah Wildcats on Friday night

In fact, Lee uses the word, “hurdle,” to describe it.

Pocola looks to end losing streak Friday against Wilburton Diggers

October 10, 2013

Things have been rough the last two weeks for the Pocola Indians football team, losing 59-0 to Vian and last week 59-14 at home to Hugo. However, injuries have had a big part of that.
“We're about 90 percent we'll get two of our kids back — Anthony Clopton and Hayden Hindmarsh,” Pocola coach Rick Lang said. “With them back on offense and defense, that will make us better. [Quarterback] Johnny [Satterfield] is about 80 percent, but he's got to give it a go. It's a must win for us. Our season is on the line. We have to take them one game at a time, but we've got to make it happen this week.”
