Being a linebacker on the Poteau Pirates' defensive unit, senior Kaydon Evans was not totally pleased with the team's defensive performance â€” even though the Pirates beat the Durant Lions 43-42 in double overtime Friday night at Costner Stadium.
â€śI don't think our defense showed what we're capable of doing,â€ť he said. â€śI think we gave up way too many points. But that's how it goes in the first game. You really don't know what to expect, but I think we can do much better than that. I think we'll do a lot better than that this week [against Van Buren, Ark.]. I think we'll show people what we really can do.â€ť
