Primitive arms season in full swing

October 31, 2012

I hope everyone enjoyed all the youth pictures last week, and my column on Thursday will have more. More will be in Saturday's edition. There is nothing I like more than seeing the smile of a young boy or girl who has taken a deer. Anyone who has pictures of kids with deer send them to me, and I will get them in as soon as I can.

Most important football game of season Friday night for Spiro; Bulldogs entertain Checotah Wildcats for Senior Night, shot at third place in District 3A-8

October 31, 2012

The good news is the Spiro Bulldogs are in the Class 3A playoffs, no matter what they do in Friday's home finale against the Checotah Wildcats at 7:30 p.m. at McClain Stadium. However, they want to end the regular season on a high note, and not just to win their home finale or make Senior Night memorable for the Class of 2013.
“You don't want to go into the playoffs with a loss,” said Chris Bunch, Spiro's coach. “It's a very important game for us to win. Checotah is a good team, and I think it's going to be a tough game.”

October 30, 2012

BROKEN ARROW — Four Poteau Lady Pirates softball players, Shelby Standridge, Gabba Wilson, RaeLynn Caldwell and Sidnee Ward, helped the Oklahoma Bedlam Black softball team to a pair of victories Friday night. Oklahoma Bedlam Black doubled up Tuff E Nuff 4-2 and handled the Tulsa Shootout Gold 9-2.
In the win over Tuff E Nuff, Oklahoma Bedlam Black broke a 1-1 first-inning tie with a single run in the third inning.

Things look favorable for a Senior Night win for Poteau on Friday

October 29, 2012

The Poteau Pirates will have their Senior Night at 7:30 p.m. Friday against the Tulsa Rogers Ropers.
The Ropers were at one time one of the better schools in the state, and I understand that they won several state championships along the way. However, somewhere along the way something happened, and they completely stopped playing football.
