Poteau senior lineman not affected by Friday’s playoff opponent change; Pirates will travel Friday night to face Oologah, not Wagoner, in Class 4A playoff opener

November 12, 2014

At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Poteau Pirates found out their football playoff journey had taken a change. Due to the Oologah Mustangs playing with some ineligible players during their District 4A-3 season, the Mustangs, who originally won the district title, suffered a couple of losses, thus dropping them to the runner-up spot. Therefore, instead of the Pirates heading to face the Wagoner Bulldogs on Friday night, they will head to Oologah.
The change doesn’t seem to have bothered the Pirates.
