The Poteau Bandit League football teams went 2-2 on Saturday, but lost two of the three games played against Van Buren (Ark.) White at Costner Stadium.
The sixth-grade team defeated Van Buren White 24-6, but the fourth-grade team lost 26-0 and the third-grade team fell 19-6.
The Poteau fifth-grade team won its game, but against a different opponent â€” and at a different place. The Poteau fifth-graders blanked the Heavener Wolves 20-0 Saturday afternoon at Harvey Stadium because Van Buren White did not have a fifth-grade team.
The Poteau Bandit League teams will return to action next Saturday at Costner Stadium against Union Christian Academy, Ark. Games will begin at noon, with the third-grade game first, followed by the fourth-grade, fifth-grade and sixth-grade contests.
