Pocola football team looks to bounce back against Antlers with hopes of saving its season

October 17, 2012

POCOLA — Last week, the Pocola Indians suffered a 40-0 loss to the Hartshorne Miners. While the game did not eliminate the Indians from the playoff hunt in Class 2A, they are in must-win situations tonight and next week.
The Indians (4-3 overall, 2-2 in District 2A-6) will need to win Thursday night against Antlers and next week in their rivalry game at Panama to get at least third place in the district — and a playoff berth. Tonight's game with the Bearcats will begin at 7:30 p.m. at John Carter Field.

Heavener in must-win game Thursday night against Stigler Panthers

The Wolves are in a must-win situation Thursday night when they travel to meet the Stigler Panthers at 7:30 p.m. for a crucial District 3A-8 contest.
The Wolves (3-4 overall, 1-3 in district play) are on a three-game losing streak after losing 45-28 to the Spiro Bulldogs on Friday night at McClain Stadium. Heavener pretty much needs to win out to make sure the Wolves are in the playoff hunt.

Senior defensive lineman ready for stretch drive of football season, prep career

October 17, 2012

It's hard to come to the realization that things are about to end. Take a football career, for instance. Players such as Troy Aikman, Phil Simms and Chris Collinsworth, who are now National Football League analysts, probably hated to have to hang up their uniforms after their NFL careers ended.
One Poteau Pirate senior player probably knows that feeling. Senior defensive lineman Zack Hall is ready to end his prep career on a high note, which would be making the playoffs.
