Poteau Pirates welcome Stilwell for homecoming

While the Poteau Pirates will hope for a happy homecoming tonight when they entertain the Stilwell Indians at 7:30 p.m. at Costner Stadium, last week was a pretty happy one, too, for the locals after the Pirates ended a six-game losing streak to the archrival Sallisaw Black Diamonds in a 34-9 victory.“It was a good win for us,” Poteau coach Greg Werner said. “It was a good win for our program. It was a good win for the town. Hopefully, that can propel us to bigger and better things. It was a big deal for us to win.”• • •District 4A-4 StandingsTeam District Overall +/-Poteau 1-0 4-0 +15Fort Gibson 1-0 3-1 +15Tulsa Cascia Hall 1-0 4-0 +14Muldrow 1-0 1-3 +1Broken Bow 0-1 1-3 -1Stilwell 0-1 1-3 -14Sallisaw 0-1 2-2 -15Tulsa Rogers 0-1 2-2 -15
