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.
â€śI was really upset because I thought we could win the game,â€ť said Derek Francis, senior defensive lineman. â€śIt 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).â€ť
