Poteau Pirates football coach Greg Werner said that last weekâ€™s game against Broken Bow, Friday nightâ€™s home game against Sallisaw and the road game next week against Fort Gibson are the three most important games of the season.
The Pirates took care of the first game, winning last Thursday night against the Savages. Now come the Black Diamonds, and senior linebacker Eli Mapes canâ€™t wait.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. â€” Former Poteau Lady Pirate golfer Hannah Ward, who was a three-time Class 4A state champion, placed in the top eight at the Blue Raider Invitational, which took place last weekend.

After losing by 40 points against Hartshorne on Oct. 3, the Panama Razorbacks have earned two dominating wins â€” routing Foyil 40-2 on Oct. 10 and archrival Pocola 48-0 last week.
