Only five games for LeFlore County football teams this Friday with Arkoma having a bye and Quinton forfeiting its game against Talihina.
Panama and Poteau both try to stay atop their respective districts while Spiro opens district play looking for its first win, Heavener visits Eufaula with only 13 players and Pocola tries to hand Gore its first loss.
Poteau (4-0, 1-0) has its toughest game of the year when the Pirates visit Fort Gibson (2-2, 1-0) in 4A-4 play. Both teams took their district openers last week with Poteau winning at Metro Christian and Fort Gibson stomping Stilwell, 63-6.
The two teams currently share the district lead with Broken Bow and Hilldale.
Panama (5-0, 1-0) will have a tough test at home against Valliant (1-4, 0-1). The Bulldogs’ record is deceiving as three of the losses have come by a combined nine points.
Valliant lost to Antlers, 26-22, last week while Panama opened district play with a 20-7 win over Hartshorne.
After several players quit this week, Heavener’s bid for its first win will be even tougher as the Wolves (0-5) open district play at Eufaula (3-2).
Spiro (0-4) has played four 3A schools in preparation for its district opener. Wilburton’s schedule has not been nearly as tough, as the Diggers opened with three Class A foes, although one was Talihina. Wilburton downed Hugo in its district opener last week, 36-22.
Pocola (1-3, 0-1) will try to snap a two-game losing skid when the Indians host Gore (4-0) in the Pirates’ district opener. Pocola is attempting to bounce back from a loss to Talihina in the Indians’ district opener last week while Gore had a bye.
After snapping a 24-game losing streak last week with a 16-14 win over Bowlegs, Bokoshe (1-3, 1-0) visits Coyle (2-2, 1-0) with the district lead at stake. Midway and Thackerville are also 1-0 in district play.
