WILBURTON â€” The high school basketball season got started for the Panama teams Thursday night, but in the end both squads suffered heartbreaking losses.
A fourth-quarter spurt where Wilburton scored quickly and Panama had a momentary defensive lapse allowed the Lady Diggers to prevail 47-39 over the Lady Razorbacks.
It was much the same for the Hogs as they had a two-point lead with three minutes left, only to see the Diggers end the game with a run to snatch a 46-42 win away from the Razorbacks.
It looked for a while Thursday night that the host Poteau Pirates and Lady Pirates were going to make it to Saturday afternoon's championship games of the Poteau Freshmen Tournament, which is taking place at Sherman Floyd Fieldhouse.
The Lady Pirates did make Saturday afternoon's 2 p.m. championship game against Muldrow as Poteau was too much for the Sallisaw Lady Black Diamonds in posting a 52-21 victory in Thursday night's semifinal contest. The Lady Bulldogs edged the Wilburton Lady Diggers 36-34 in the other semifinal.
