Poteau, Panama girls reach winner's-bracket final at LCT; 2012 fast-pitch champion will be crowned by end of the night

September 13, 2012

The LeFlore County Tournament, no matter what sport, can bring both joy and heartache. On Day 2 of the 2012 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament Tuesday at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex, there was definitely some of both.
For instance, the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers were within a hit of knocking off the top seed, the Poteau Lady Pirates, in one of the winner's-bracket semifinals. Instead, that hit did not come, and an extra inning was needed — since the game went past its alloted time limit.

Senior receiver/defensive back glad to be finally be playing at home

September 13, 2012

The last time the Poteau Pirates football team was home, it was its final preseason scrimmage against Mena, Ark., Aug. 23 at Costner Stadium.
Now, the Pirates will finally get to play a meaningful game at their friendly confines at 7:30 p.m. Friday as they play their home opener against Tulsa Webster. No one is more glad of that than senior receiver and defensive back Tyler Tustin.
“It feels great getting to play in front of our home crowd,” Tustin said. “After having two away games, maybe we can have a good showing in front of our home fans — and come away with another win.”
