Both teams enter tonight's game from different situations. The homestanding Tigers (0-1) lost 48-34 to the Oaks Warriors last Friday night in their home opener, in what was their truly first game-like situation of the season.

Spiro plays home opener tonight in battle of Bulldogs with Muldrow

September 7, 2012

One thing is for sure, the Bulldogs will win tonight's game at McClain Stadium. The Spiro Bulldogs will entertain the Muldrow Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. tonight in Spiro's home opener.
While being home will hopefully give Spiro (0-1) an edge, it still comes down to executing plays on the field.
“No matter where you play, you have to go play ball,” said Chris Bunch, Spiro's coach. “You can have the home-field advantage, but you still have to go play. You still have to go block and tackle.”

Are you ready for some football — Tower Drive-In style?

September 7, 2012

We took our boys up to Tower Drive-In Wednesday night for the first National Football League game of the year, the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants. When the game came on the big screen, the 1989 version of “Are You Ready for Some Football?” by Hank Williams, Jr. was played Boy, that brought back a lot of memories, and it was good to hear ol' Hank again. The picture was so clear, and we had Poteau's fantasy guru, Cody “Ace” Repass giving us the play-by-play with updates.

New senior tight end liking being a Poteau Pirate player

September 6, 2012

When Broken Bow's Greg Werner was hired as the new Poteau Pirates' football coach, not only was there a transition for him, but also for his senior tight end son, Jay.
While there was skepticism at first, Jay has learned to embrace being a Poteau Pirate.
“At first it was tough because I thought to myself, 'What in the world, going to one of our own rivals in our district,'” Jay said. “As time progressed, it's gone a lot smoother than I thought it would be. It's definitely been a bigger change. I've definitely enjoyed it — so far.”

Heavener Wolves have home football opener Friday night against Hartshorne

September 6, 2012

Things could not have started any better for the Heavener Wolves football team than what happened in Friday night's 35-0 season-opening win on the road over Union Christian Academy in Fort Smith, Ark.
“The kids came out and played hard,” said Carl Lee, Heavener's new coach. “We have some areas in which we need to make corrections. It was a good confidence builder, and it was good to get things started on the right foot.”
Now, the Wolves (1-0) will try to get their home season off the same way when they entertain the Hartshorne Miners at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Harvey Stadium.

Panama Razorbacks look to rebound from season-opening loss against Roland Rangers

September 6, 2012

The good news for the Panama Razorbacks in last week's season-opening game against the Gore Pirates at George Ollie Stadium was they were in a position they had rarely been in recently — ahead. However, the not-so-good news was that in the end they fell short in a 35-19 loss to the Pirates.
