GREENWOOD, Ark. â€” The Poteau Bandit League football teams split their four games to end the regular season on Saturday.
The fifth-grade (33-0) and third-grade teams (18-0) posted wins, while the sixth-grade (22-14) and fourth-grade squads (24-0) lost their games.
BOKOSHE â€” After a two week hiatus from the football field, the Bokoshe Tigers were hoping to return to action this week in a battle of Tigers at Maud. However, that Tiger tussle will have to wait until next year.
For the second straight District C-4 game, the Tigers (1-7 overall, 0-6 in district play) will have to forfeit to Maud (5-3, 3-3) due to lack of players.
â€śI think we'd have enough to play a basketball game because you only need eight players for that,â€ť said Tyler Massey, Bokoshe's second-year coach. â€śBut we just don't have enough for a football game.â€ť
Sunday Couple Scrambles at Wolf Ridge Golf Course will take place at 2 p.m. Sundays. The entry fee is $15 per person for the nine-hole weekly event.
