Last week, the Poteau Pirates lost their District 4A-4 opener to the Hilldale Hornets, which was their second loss in a row after opening the season 2-0.
â€śIt was disappointing since we were going in feeling very confident,â€ť Poteau High School senior place-kicker Blake Williams said. â€śWe were pretty sure we had it set up in a way that was going to be a pretty sure way for us to win.â€ť
But the Pirates still have six more district games left, including Friday night's road game against Tulsa Webster, meaning there's still a lot left to play for â€” including a district title and/or a playoff berth.
â€śThat helps, just knowing that our objectives are getting better each week,â€ť Williams said. â€śWe're just going to have to play better than the other team.â€ť
