Big games set for Week 2 in football

Week 2 football games got an early start with Arkoma playing Webbers Falls Thursday night and continues Friday with all the other county teams, aside from Talihina, in action.

Webbers Falls defeated Arkoma, 60-14, to leave the Mustangs at 1-1. Arkoma is at home next week hosting Wetumka.

The biggest game this week in the county has Spiro visiting Pocola in a battle between two schools located only a few miles apart. Spiro is 1-0 after defeating Panama last week. Pocola is 1-1, losing the opener at Heavener before bouncing back to down Hackett last week in the Indians’ home opener.

The Spiro and Pocola game can be seen HERE.

Heavener is also looking to bounce back after losing to Central, 32-23, in a game the Wolves could have won and started off 2-0 for the first time since 2005. Now, Heavener travels to one of its biggest rivals over the years in Hartshorne in a series that dates back to 1928.

Heavener vs. Hartshorne the series

The Wolves enter the game, 1-1, while Hartshorne is 1-0 after crushing Wilburton, 52-9. Heavener had its best offensive game of the season last year against the Miners, winning 47-32, as the Wolves rushed for over 500 yards in a game for the first time in years.

For anybody who can’t make it to Hartshorne, the game will be live streamed, barring technical difficulties, on the school’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Poteau is looking for some revenge as the Pirates travel to Metro Christian in another non-district game. Metro handled Poteau one of its two regular season losses last year. The Pirates are 1-0 and coming off a bye after downing Bishop Kelley in the opener.

Metro Christian is 1-0 after defeating NOAH in its opener.

After the narrow 12-6 loss in overtime at Spiro last week, Panama, 0-1, will look to get into the win column when the Razorbacks host Hackett, Arkansas.

Talihina, 1-1, has a bye as was mentioned previously. The Golden Tigers visit Savanna next week.
