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.”

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.

Heavener Wolves look for second straight victory, travel to meet Stigler Panthers on Friday night

October 9, 2014

The Heavener Wolves snapped their three-game losing streak Friday night with a 14-12 road win over the Valliant Bulldogs. It was a game where they did not self-destruct, unlike the previous two losses — falling 22-12 to Muldrow and 17-14 in the District 3A-8 opener to Eufaula — where they did.
“It felt good,” first-year Heavener coach Sam Hembree said about last week’s victory. “We sustained drives better against Valliant. We did a better job throwing down field with more success than in the past. We played really well on both sides of the ball. We didn’t shoot ourselves in the foot.”

October 9, 2014

With the Arkoma Mustangs on a four-game losing streak since entering District B-4 play, they are in must-win mode as they travel Friday night to meet the Porum Panthers at 7:30 p.m.
“We've got to win the rest of them, and probably have some help, to get in [the postseason],” Arkoma coach Mark Weatherton said. “Our backs are against the wall. We've got to take care of what we can take care of, and Porum is first.”

Bokoshe Tigers look for first win of 2014, travel to meet Midway Chargers

October 9, 2014

The Bokoshe Tigers will try to get not only their first win of the 2014 footbal season but their first victory in District C-4 when they travel to meet the Midway Chargers at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Council Hill.
The Tigers (0-5, 0-3 in district play), who lost 48-0 on homecoming last week to Cave Springs, came close to their first win of the season in their district opener, falling 28-20 in overtime to the Bowlegs Bison. However, Bokoshe coach Bryan Murray believed in the preseason that there were some winnable games in this district. He's hoping that Friday night will be one of those games.

The Lady ’Cats were facing elimination all day Saturday at the Class 2A Regional Tournament in Wyandotte, and had to win three games — two over Wyandotte — to win the regional and advance to state. They did just that.

Injured receiver/defensive back frustrated at not getting to play

October 8, 2014

Poteau senior wide receiver/defensive back Hunter Bradshaw should be enjoying his final year as Pirate by making plays on the gridiron. Instead, he’s become a spectator.
Bradshaw tore his ACL in the season opener against Alma, Ark., in the Hooten’s Classic on Sept. 4 at Fort Smith [Ark.] Northside High School. It’s indeed been a very frustrating time for him.
