After seeing their perfect season dashed by the Tulsa Cascia Hall Commandos Oct. 17 at Costner Stadium, the Poteau Pirates knew a big win was needed last week at Muldrow. They got it, winning 42-3 to keep the Pirates' hopes at not just a home playoff game in their grasp, but the No. 1 seed from District 4A-4.
“It was huge,” Pirate senior Connor Wheat said. “We knew we had to get a win, and we got a big one.”
