After a so-so start to the 2017 football season during Week 0, we have a full contingent of games this week.
Every LeFlore County team (even Bokoshe, but the Tigers aren’t picked this week because the game was scheduled too late) plays this week. None of that Week 0 cruddola with only four teams playing.
We were 3-1 last week, thanks Arkoma! But hey, it’s early and one cannot be perfect every week, although it would be nice. Some tough picks this week!
PANAMA AT HEAVENER—A matchup of old LeFlore County rivals. Panama got the best of the Wolves last year and coasted in its opener against Warner while Heavener stayed close much of the game before falling at Haskell. If the Wolves play the same as they did last week, Heavener has a good shot of winning. If not…HEAVENER 21, PANAMA 14.
DURANT AT POTEAU—Poteau has pretty much dominated the short series, although Durant did win last year’s game. The Pirates are a little banged up and that might make the difference in this one. DURANT 28, POTEAU 14.
ROLAND AT SPIRO—Roland got drubbed by Checotah last week while this is the opener for Spiro. The Bulldogs won over the Rangers last year and if anything, Spiro should be better than last year. SPIRO 35, ROLAND 30.
WILBURTON AT TALIHINA—Wilburton handed Talihina its only regular season loss last year in a mild stunner. We would be willing to accept a large bet that doesn’t happen again. Talihina has been looking forward to this one for a year. TALIHINA 42, WILBURTON 20.
POCOLA AT HACKETT, Ark.—Good things are coming to Pocola, but not quite this quick. Hackett has been pretty good the last couple of years and Pocola has its work cut out for it this week. HACKETT 35, POCOLA 22.
ARKANSAS CHRISTIAN ACADEMY AT ARKOMA—Arkansas Christian Academy, out of Bryant, Ark. (how’s that for research) is 1-0 after beating some team from Mississippi last week and now makes the trek into Oklahoma. Arkoma drew our scorn for losing last week after being picked to win. We aren’t happy with the Mustangs, but…ARKOMA 56, ACA 28.
