Spiro handles Eufaula for big road District 3A-8 football victory

October 8, 2012

EUFAULA — Chris Bunch, Spiro's football coach, said that once his Bulldogs got past their District 3A-8 opener against Stigler (a 48-16 win by the Panthers) that the other district games were very winnable for his team. So far, he's 2-for-2.
After winning 17-0 at home over Idabel Sept. 28 at McClain Stadium, the Bulldogs headed west down Oklahoma State Highway 9 to Eufaula, and picked up a 40-14 road victory over the Ironheads to go to 3-3 overall — and, more importantly, improve to 2-1 in District 3A-8.

Friday's game shows Pirates can play with stronger teams, but now, Poteau needs strong finish to season to make postseason play

October 8, 2012

I believe that Fort Gibson could be very underrated team. The Tigers are that good, and they do deserve the love that they are getting from the pollsters. This week, they're ranked seventh in the Class 4A Poll.
Jake Gandara has to be the most impressive back that I have seen in District 4A-4 for a long time.
I guess you could call me a Poteau Pirate pollyanna, but I believe if you look hard enough you can find something good in everything.
