SALLISAW â€” The Poteau Pirates played the Sallisaw Black Diamonds just about as close as they could in the first half of Thursday night's District 4A-4 game Perry F. Lattimore Stadium. They allowed Sallisaw a very quick touchdown to begin the game, but then held the Diamonds scoreless for the rest of the first half with the exception of a highly debatable 30-yard field goal, which the Pirates queried.
