Arkoma looks to end losing streak in Friday night's home football game against Southwest Covenant

September 26, 2012

It's been a couple of rough weeks for the Arkoma Mustangs football team, which is coming off back-to-back District C-4 losses to Maud (56-6) and last week's road contest at Sasakwa (64-24).
Now, the Mustangs (1-3, 1-2 in district play) almost believe they're in playoff mode right now as they welcome Southwest Covenant from Yukon for a 7:30 p.m. Friday game at Mustang Field.

Talihina football team to step out of district play Friday night against UCA

September 26, 2012

When the new District A-6 was set up by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association, it was an odd-football district in total team numbers — seven, as opposed to the customary eight.
So, this week was the odd week for the Talihina Golden Tigers, who aren't playing a District A-6 foe this week. So, the choices were two — either take a week off or play somebody. The Golden Tigers chose the latter.
The Golden Tigers will play at home for the first time in three weeks at they will entertain Union Christian Academy from Fort Smith, Ark., at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Doc Robinson Stadium.

Bokoshe Tigers seek first 2012 football win Friday night in road game against Midway

September 26, 2012

BOKOSHE — The Bokoshe Tigers football team originally was slated to have had an off date last week. Instead, since both the Tigers and the Webbers Falls Warriors were open, they decided to meet last Friday night in Bokoshe.
With the fact that the Tigers are an injury-filled squad, the open date would have been welcomed. Instead, the visiting Warriors defeated the Tigers 69-0 in a game stopped at halftime by the mercy rule.
With the Tigers (0-4, 0-3 in District C-4) so injured, the week off may not have been as beneficial as hoped.

Panama hits road for Friday night football at Hartshorne

September 26, 2012

The Panama Razorbacks are still trying to seek that elusive first football win of the season. They had a shot at that last week for homecoming at George Ollie Stadium against the Wilburton Diggers. Due to falling behind early, it made the Hogs play catch-up football all night.
“Defensively, we stepped up in the second half,” said Brandon Ellis, Panama's second-year coach. “We just fell too far behind and tried to play catch up the whole games. Offensively, the low point was we had five turnovers, and that just killed our drives.”

Poteau Pirates making strides despite loss to Sallisaw Friday night

September 25, 2012

Well, the Poteau Pirates played with Class 4A's sixth-ranked Sallisaw Black Diamonds in Friday night's District 4A-4 opener at Costner Stadium, and were in contention until the final quarter. It seemed like the Black Diamonds came out in the third quarter and made major corrections on the offensive side of the ball. Ben Oberste, the future Tulsa Golden Hurricane, has been highly visible in sports in eastern Oklahoma for the past three years. But without question, he was a lot more dominating with his legs than with his arm. Poteau had no answer for the QB read option.

Just a handful of diamond teams left now

September 25, 2012

At this time last week, LeFlore County had 12 high school fast-pitch softball teams and five high school fall baseball teams still playing on the diamond.
However, those numbers were severely cut last week in district tournaments. Now, there are five softball and a single baseball team still playing.
The Poteau Lady Pirates will begin postseason play Thursday in the Class 4A District Tournament, while the other teams will be in regional tournament with the hopes of making it to next weekend's state tournaments.

Disappointing end to fall baseball season for Whitesboro boys

September 25, 2012

BATTIEST — As strong a beginning to the Class B District Tournament was for the Whitesboro Bulldogs baseball team, the end was just as disappointing.
Only needing a single win on Friday to advance to next week's Class B Regional Tournament, the ’Dogs were beaten twice by the Caney Cougars by scores of 17-0 in four innings in the first title game and 7-6 in the second title game to see their season end.
The Bulldogs won their first two games on Thursday, handling host Battiest 13-2, then outlasting Caney 10-9.
