VAN BUREN, Ark. — Coach Brooks Coatney of Van Buren wanted to get a quicker start than last week. While his team drove the ball downfield fairly successfully, fumbles, however, foiled the Pointers.
Poteau scored in the first half, and then had to post two second-half touchdowns to pull out the 18-15 victory.
However, the loss may have proven costly as player Austin Barnette blew out his knee, and his status for next week was uncertain at press time. In Saturday's physical edition, due to a reporting error, the incorrect injured player is listed, and The Poteau Daily News regrets the error.
