Poteau second-year coach Greg Werner called last week's road game at Fort Gibson â€ś ... for every kid playing for us that this is biggest football game they will have ever played in.â€ť The Pirates played as such, pulling out a 42-28 victory over the Tigers.
â€śIt was pretty big,â€ť senior tailback/linebacker Cord Lawrence said about the victory. â€śIt was really great that we won. It was a tough game. It has set us up for something big.â€ť
That something big will happen at 7:30 p.m. Thursday when the Pirates entertain the Tulsa Cascia Hall Commandos in a District 4A-4 showdown. If Poteau wins, it will mean the Pirates will be in the driver's seat to win district title.

The Poteau Pirates Quarterback Club will be selling red hoodies and T-shirts to fans to make it a â€śRed Outâ€ť game Thursday night against Tulsa Cascia Hall.
