September 28, 2012

The Pocola Indians are anxious to get back in the win column after facing two very good teams — the Quinton Savages (who beat them 30-14 in their home opener two weeks ago) and the second-ranked Vian Wolverines (who defeated them 68-0 in last week's District 2A-6 opener).
Rick Lang, Pocola's coach, said even in the preseason that Vian was going to be the team to beat in the district. After last week's game, he's even more sure of that.

Andy Nance and Rodney Faulkenberry were second (68.77 pounds, $400), followed by Keith Griffith and Gary Steelman (68.66, $300), Robbie Brassfield and Keith Jones (65.29, $200) and Joey Chitwood and Tony Parker (63.84, $100).

UPDATED: Thursday's rain plays havoc with postseason action

September 27, 2012

Mother Nature was a big winner on softball diamonds where LeFlore County fast-pitch teams were competing in postseason contests.
The Poteau Lady Pirates were tied with the Muldrow Lady Bulldogs at 0-0 with one out in the top of the second inning in the Class 4A District Tournament in Poteau when the rains came. The game will resume at that point at 3 p.m. Friday. Then, Game 2 will follow at about 4:30 p.m. If both teams split, a third game will be needed, but it is not known when that game will take place since it is football night on Friday.

Senior defensive end sad about Sallisaw loss, but Pirates will get over it and bounce back

September 27, 2012

Last Friday night, the Poteau Pirates football team gave it its best shot, but came up short against the Sallisaw Black Diamonds. The Pirate players were disappointed about suffering their first loss of the 2012 season.
“I was really upset because I thought we could win the game,” said Derek Francis, senior defensive lineman. “It was a close game, but they pulled it off in the second half. We threw two interceptions, and that's what turned the game around. I was pretty sad because I really wanted (the win).”

Heavener football team to get challenge from Roland

September 27, 2012

The Heavener Wolves are on a two-game winning streak since losing a disappointing home opener two weeks ago to the Hartshorne Miners. Since then, the Wolves (3-1 overall and 1-0 in District 3A-8) have posted wins over Gore (31-21) and Valliant (47-17) in last week's district opener.
“We feel like we've turned the corner, and we've put that loss behind us,” said Carl Lee, Heavener's new coach. “We're heading in the right direction — or at least we think we're heading in the right direction. We're not looking back at that loss. We're just trying to get a good winning streak going.”

It is just like Christmas at my house these days

September 27, 2012

This time of the year gets my blood pumping. The start of hunting season is one day I look forward to every year. I am almost like a kid at Christmas when Oct. 1 rolls around.
As luck would have it, opening day is on a Monday this year, so I will have to wait until the evening hunt to climb into my stand this year.
I have different tree stands hung for whatever wind direction we have, and my cameras have captured some deer coming through. So, all I need now is for opening day to get here.
