HEAVENER â€” The game did not have the feel of a run-rule game Thursday afternoon when the Howe Lady Lions took the five-mile trip south down U.S. Highway 59 to meet the Heavener Lady Wolves.
But in the end, it ended up being just that as a four-run fifth inning got the Lady Wolves an 8-0, run-rule victory over the Lady Lions, who saw their five-game winning streak snapped.
EL RENO â€” The Wister Wildcats got their appearance in the 2011 Tournament of Champions off to a good start Thursday afternoon, run ruling the host Union City Tigers 12-2 Thursday at Redlands Community College.
The Wildcats played Coleman on Friday with the winner meeting the Okarche-Dale winner at 4 p.m. this afternoon in Union City for the championship.
The Wister-Coleman loser and the Okarche-Dale loser will play for third place at 2 p.m. this afternoon in Union City.
Leflore 9, Panola 2; McCurtain 7, Leflore 4: In Panola, the Savages (2-3) split their games in Thursday's three-way.
TALIHINA â€” Two things were pretty visible to Talihina Golden Tigers Football Coach Kelly Gravitt.
One, his offensive unit may be pretty productive after all, considering a lot of his skilled players graduated from last season's 11-1 team â€” which won District 2A-6.
The Golden Tigers had two nice drives deep into Quinton red-zone territory, and probably would have scored had the 10-play scripted drive not stopped drives.
