In Tuesday's edition, incorrect information appeared in the story about the Heavener cross country runners participating at the Class 3A Regional Meet.
This year, only the top five teams at the regional meet qualified all their runners to state. Since the Lady Wolves were sixth and the Wolves seventh, they did not make state as a complete team.
Only one Heavener runner, Jose Farias, qualified for this weekend's Class 3A State Meet at 2 p.m. Saturday at Shawnee's Gordon Cooper Vo-Tech Center.

Poteau Bandit League teams sweep Stilwell

October 19, 2011

STILWELL — The third-grade, fourth-grade and sixth-grade Poteau Bandit League teams posted wins Saturday in Stilwell.
The third-grade defeated Stilwell 6-0 as Colton Williamson scored on the third play of the game, a 61-yard scamper to pay dirt. From there, it was a defensive tussle — and it was defense which iced the game for Poteau.
Jordan Tom recovered a Stilwell fumble which was caused by Jacques Adams with 1:27 left to play, and Poteau ran out the clock.

Another District C-4 showdown for Arkoma Mustangs — this week, it's Webbers Falls Warriors

October 19, 2011

Last week, the Arkoma Mustangs, although slow starting, pulled away from the Midway Chargers to end up mercy ruling them 86-36 last Friday night at home in a battle of District C-4 heavyweights.
“It was back and forth,” Arkoma Coach Mark Weatherton said. “They were stuffing it down our throats. It was only 30-28 in the second quarter, and I was nervous. We then reeled off 42 straight points, and then I felt better. We played a good game, and it was nice to get a big win like that over a pretty good team.”

October 19, 2011

The Spiro Bulldogs made it all the way to the Class 3A state quarterfinals a season ago. If they want to even think about postseason play this season, they must win out.
The first of those games for Spiro (3-4, 2-2 in District 3A-8) will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday on the road against Valliant (5-2, 2-2) in a battle of Bulldogs.
Spiro lost 34-18 to the district-leading Seminole Chieftains last week at McClain Stadium. It was a game in which the ’Dogs were their own worse enemy.

October 15, 2011

SALLISAW — The Poteau Pirates played the Sallisaw Black Diamonds just about as close as they could in the first half of Thursday night's District 4A-4 game Perry F. Lattimore Stadium. They allowed Sallisaw a very quick touchdown to begin the game, but then held the Diamonds scoreless for the rest of the first half with the exception of a highly debatable 30-yard field goal, which the Pirates queried.
