Biggest soccer game in Poteau history set for tonight

March 28, 2013

Tonight's soccer game between the top two boys soccer teams in Class 4A — No. 1 Fort Gibson and No. 2 Poteau — at 7 p.m. is perhaps the most important soccer match in Poteau Pirate history.
The Pirates lost last year's state semifinal game to eventual state champion Oklahoma City Mount St. Mary.
The Pirates lost three All-State players as Spencer Hall, Blake Williams and Jesse Woodson graduated. However, due to their expertise and returning most of their team intact, the Pirates are drawing favorable attention and affirmation.
Poteau garnered the preseason No. 2 rating, while the Tigers were No. 4.
The Pirates are 6-1 on the season, with their only loss being against the Fort Smith Northside Grizzlies in the Sykes Invitational. Fort Gibson is 3-0 and is now the No. 1 team in the state.
