By the Poteau Pirates football team winning District 4A-4 this season, it meant that there would be two home playoff games — assuming they would win the first one.
The Pirates won that first game, handling the Cleveland Tigers 48-7 last week at Costner Stadium.
“It was a good night for us,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said. “Anytime you enter the playoffs and win [a game] big, it's always awesome. It was a great night for our kids, coaches and our program to get a playoff win.”
The reward for the win is a Class 4A state quarterfinal playoff home game, against one of the most tradition-rich teams in Oklahoma. The Pirates (11-1) will entertain the Clinton Red Tornadoes (8-3), last year's Class 4A state champions, at 7:30 tonight at Costner Stadium.
