It makes no difference the level of baseball, a pitcher gets a thrill when throwing a perfect game. Just ask Spencer Wells.
Wells, who pitches for the Poteau Rebels OK Kids baseball team, did just that, throwing a perfect five-inning game as the Rebels defeated the Spiro Muddawgs 5-0 in the title game of the 2013 OK Kids Preseason Tournament on Thursday night at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
Wells faced the minimum 15 batters in five innings with 11 strikeouts.
POCOLA â€” In a three-way baseball festival that was all LeFlore County on Thursday, the Spiro Bulldogs were the big winner on the day.
The â€™Dogs defeated the host Pocola Indians 4-3 and handled the Howe Lions 13-5. The middle game went to the Indians as they rallied past the Lions for a 3-2 victory.
WHITESBORO â€” Wister pitcher Colby Turnipseed pitched a no-hitter as the Wildcats blanked the Leflore Savages 13-0 on Thursday. The â€™Cats then used a five-run fifth-inning to rally past the host Whitesboro Bulldogs 8-4.
The â€™Dogs got past the Savages 6-2 in the other game of the day.
Talihina 17, Coalgate 8: In Talihina, the Golden Tigers, leading 10-8 in the fifth inning, used a seven-run fifth inning to end the game by run rule, since Talihina's lead was at nine runs in the fifth inning.
BUFFALO VALLEY â€” The Howe Lady Lions softball team suffered two losses to begin the two-day Buffalo Valley Festival. The Lady Lions lost 10-8 to the Clayton Lady Bulldogs, while suffering a 10-0 shutout at the hands of the Kiowa Lady Cowgirls.
The Lady Lions did not get as chance to play their final two games in the two-day event as their contests with Buffalo Valley and Battiest were rained out on Friday with no make-up dates set.
Smithville 7, Whitesboro 2: In Smithville, the Lady Braves jumped to a 4-0 lead after an inning, and never trailed.
With the top spot in the Class 4A state soccer poll at stake, the second-ranked Poteau Pirates will likely be the new No. 1 next week after they knocked off No. 1 Fort Gibson 3-2 in a shoot out Thursday night at Costner Stadium.

Michael Didway threw the first five innings with seven strikeouts. Roger Barcheers pitched a scoreless sixth and Mason Grimm did likewise in the seventh inning.
FORT SMITH, Ark. â€” Poteau golfer Cody Shore won his second tournament of the season, but he had to go a little extra to get the win.
Shore had to birdie the final hole to force a sudden-death playoff with Fort Gibsonâ€™s Wesley Jackson, tied at 73 â€” which the Pirate golfer won â€” to capture the top medalist honor at the Roland Invitational, which took place Thursday at Ben Geren Golf Course.
As a team, the Pirates were second with 328, as Jacksonâ€™s Tigers won the team title with a 315.
