Poteau Bandit League sixth-grade, third-grade teams reach title games; season ends for fourth-graders in semifinal loss to VB Green

November 6, 2013

A song by Meatloaf is entitled, “Two Out of Three Ain't Bad.” That song title could describe the Poteau Bandit Traveling League's success in the semifinals of the postseason on Saturday.
The sixth-graders blanked Van Buren (Ark.) Green 40-0 at Costner Stadium, while the third-graders posted a 34-14 win over Van Buren Green just before the sixth-graders victory.
The only blemish on the day happened in Van Buren, where the fourth-graders suffered a season-ending 30-12 loss in the semifinals against Van Buren Green.
The sixth-graders and third-graders will play for the title in next Saturday's Bandit Bowl games. The sixth-graders will be in a rematch of last year's title game against Union Christian Academy from Fort Smith, Ark., at 3:30 p.m. in Greenwood, Ark. The same two teams met in last year's fifth-grade championship.
The third-graders will meet Immaculate Catholic from Fort Smith, Ark., at 11 a.m. Saturday in Greenwood for their title game.
