Wister girls fall in state quarterfinals to Dale

October 11, 2014

SHAWNEE — The Wister Lady Wildcats softball team was hoping to do something it didn’t do last spring at the state tournament, win at least one game. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.
The Lady Wildcats suffered an 8-1 loss to the Dale Lady Pirates in Thursday afternoon’s Class 2A State Tournament quarterfinals at the Ball Fields at Firelake.
The Lady ’Cats end the season at 21-9.

Talihina Golden Tigers have mixed feelings about this week's open date

October 11, 2014

If you noticed throughout this week's editions, you did not read a preview story about the Talihina Golden Tigers' game this week, nor does Saturday's edition have their game story. That's because they did not play this week.
Due to being in District A-6, which has seven teams, one team will always do one of two things during one of the district weeks of action — either play a non-district foe, like Panama did Friday night on the road against Foyil, or not play. The latter scenario is what ended up happening to the Golden Tigers, which is being received with mixed blessings.

Poteau Pirates look to bounce back Friday night on the road against Stilwell

October 9, 2014

The Poteau Pirates will look to rebound from last Friday night’s tough home 35-33 loss to Tulsa Metro Christian when they hit the field at 7:30 p.m. Friday in a road District 4A-4 contest against the Stilwell Indians.
“It was a tough game,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said about last week’s defeat. “A play here or there, and it could have gone either way. Those type of games are tough to lose, but that’s part of the game. So, now we’ve got to come back. We definitely need to get back to work.”

Pocola Indians end four-game homestand Friday night against 2A-6 newcomer Liberty

October 9, 2014

The Pocola Indians would like to end their four-game homestand with a win over District 2A-6 newcomer Liberty for many reasons. First, a win Friday night for the Indians (1-4 overall, 0-1 in district play) in Friday night’s 7 p.m. 2A-6 contest at John Carter Field will keep them in line for all their goals.
“We still control our own destiny,” Pocola coach Rick Lang said. “We’re not out of anything. We just need to play better football. We just have to go out and take care of business, beginning Friday night.”

Spiro Bulldogs look to rebound against non-district foe, Class 2A’s 10th-ranked Stroud Tigers on Friday night

October 9, 2014

The Spiro Bulldogs will look to rebound from their first football loss of 2014 and first District 3A-8 defeat last week to the Eufaula Ironheads as they will entertain Class 2A’s Stroud Tigers in a non-district game at 7:30 p.m. Friday at McClain Stadium.
The ’Dogs (4-1) lost 21-12 to the Ironheads, but Friday night’s game will have no bearing on their district standings nor affect their playoff standing.
