SMITHVILLE â€” The Arkoma Lady Mustangs and the Cameron Lady Yellowjackets will play an elimination game today with the winner hoping to win some more to claim the championship in the Class 2A District Tournament.
The Lady Mustangs and the Lady â€™Jackets will play an elimination game at 2 this afternoon, with the loser's season ending. The winner will have to win four more games today to win the district title. Day 2 action was moved to today from Thursday due to rain.
I hope you all had a Happy Easter weekend. We started our Easter weekend off with a fishing trip to Lake Tenkiller last Friday. We only caught two fish.
We went to Soda Steve's at Fin and Feather Resort for lunch. This is one really cool place, and the restaurant has fresh onion rings the size of hubcabs on a 1968 Buick. The real jewel there is its famous cheese fries that you must try. The hour drive is definitely worth it.
CAMERON â€” The Cameron Yellowjackets baseball team won the Class A District Tournament on Wednesday, and handled their opposition fairly easily.
Cameron beat Gans twice 16-0 and 12-0 after beating Arkoma 12-0 to claim the championship.
The Mustangs, who opened the day with a 13-3 loss to Gans, saw their season end.
In Cameron's first win over Gans, Cameron pitcher Blaise Lomon no-hit the Grizzlies, pitching all three innings with five strikeouts.
Thursday Games Rained Out
LEFLORE â€” The Leflore Savages baseball team faced elimination on Thursday, and the Bokoshe Tigers were eliminated in the opening day of the Class B District Tournament on Wednesday.
The Savages, who eliminated the Tigers 13-0, fell 4-3 to the Buffalo Valley Buffaloes, who began the day with a 12-0 win over the Tigers.
The Savages (11-11) and the Buffs were to have played for the district title on Thursday, but rain washed the games out. They will be played beginning at 4 p.m. Friday, with Leflore needing to win twice to win the championship.
