If for some reason you missed opening night of action Sept. 5-6 in LeFlore County and didn't get to see some offense, Week 2 gave you a second chance.
For the second straight game, the Poteau Pirates scored 43 points, this time in a 43-40 comeback win over the Van Buren (Ark.) Pointers. For the record, the Pirates once again hit the 40-point mark, beating Tulsa Webster 46-6 Thursday night in Tulsa.
The Talihina Golden Tigers also hit the 40-point mark again in a 40-19 win over the Sallisaw junior varsity Thursday night at Doc Robinson Stadium.
The Pocola Indians got their first win of the season last week, scoring a whopping 73 points on Haileyville.
The Arkoma Mustangs opened District C-4 play in an offensive showcase, beating LeFlore County rival Bokoshe 66-28 â€” in a game totalling 94 points after opening the season in a 100-point game, and losing 62-38 to Keota.
I'm wondering if this is going to be a weekly trend?
