Most of the final day of action at the 20th annual Carl Albert State College Fall Baseball Classic, with all of the final day's worth of games at both the Oktaha Softball Tournament and the Robbers Cave Shootout softball tournament in Wilburton, were rained out Saturday.
The CASC Classic finals between Wister and Red Oak will take place at 7 p.m. Monday at Poteau High School's Town Creek Park after the Wildcats play their regularly-scheduled home game at 4 p.m. against McCurtain.
The third-place game between Crowder and Kiowa will take place at 5 p.m. Monday at Town Creek Park.
Three local teams got victories on the opening day of the 20th annual Carl Albert State College Fall Classic, which took place at Wister and Cameron due to CASCâ€™s Ival Goodman Fieldâ€™s bleachers being classified as condemned.
At the Wister site, the homestanding Wildcats blanked the Smithville Braves 11-0 after the Braves handled the McCurtain Bulldogs 11-1. The final game of the night saw the Crowder pitcher Hunter Motley one-hit the Leflore Savages 9-1.
OKTAHA â€” The Heavener Lady Wolves and the Wister Lady Wildcats each posted two wins on the opening day of the Oktaha Tournament on Thursday. The Lady Wolves downed Warner 4-1 before handling the Sequoyah-Tahlequah junior varsity 6-0.
The Lady â€™Cats defeated last weekendâ€™s Pocola Tournament champion Vian Lady Wolverines 7-1, then beat Sallisaw-Central 6-1.
The Poteau Lady Pirates got their first victory of the season with a 7-4 win over Stilwell, but lost to the tournament-host Lady Tigers 9-3.
OKMULGEE â€” The Spiro Bulldogs had their moments in their first preseason football scrimmage of the season Thursday night against the host Okmulgee Bulldogs and three Tulsa schools â€” Hale, McLain and Webster.
VALLIANT â€” The Talihina Golden Tigers scored 13 touchdowns while their defense held Valliant to one score where the defensive man fell down in Talihina's first preseason scrimmage Thursday night.
Editor's note: Talihina correspondent Calvin McClain contributed to this story.
COUNCIL HILL â€” While the Arkoma Mustangs football team scored two passing touchdowns in Thursday night's five-way scrimmage with the host Midway Chargers, Tulsa Regent Prep and District B-4 foes Keota and Porum, overall the passing attack was displeasing to coach Mark Weatherton.
There will be a LeFlore County softball invasion coming to the Ballfields at Fairlake in Shawnee today and Saturday for the Hall of Fame Shootout. On either or both days, the county will be represented by the Heavener Lady Wolves, the Panama Lady Razorbacks and the Spiro Lady Bulldogs. The Red Oak Lady Eagles also will participate in the event.
Here's the two-day schedule, featuring local teams:
Panama vs. Red Oak, 1 p.m.
Red Oak vs. Dickson, 3 p.m.
Panama vs. Chelsea, 5 p.m.
Heavener vs. Elgin, 5 p.m.
Spiro vs. Bethel, 5 p.m.
Heavener vs. McLoud, 7 p.m.
BEGGS â€” The Panama Lady Razorbacks softball team split its Friday games in the Beggs Festival, beating the Preston Lady Pirates 11-5 but losing 5-2 to the Glenpool Lady Warriors.
BLUE â€” The Spiro Lady Bulldogs went 1-2 to end their stay in last weekend's Rock Creek Lady Mustangs Tournament. After nipping the Silo Lady Rebels 2-1 on Friday, back-to-back losses on Saturday â€” 7-1 to Ringling and 10-3 to Morris â€” eliminated the Lady Bulldogs from the tournament.
The Poteau Pirates and the Heavener Wolves are tired of beating up on their teammates for the first two weeks of practice. So, theyâ€™ll beat up on each other Friday night when the Pirates face the Wolves at 6:30 at Harvey Stadium for both teams first non-interteam scrimmage of the season. The scrimmage was to have been at Costner Stadium, but due to the turf still not fully installed the scrimmage had to be moved to Harvey Stadium.
Admission to Friday nightâ€™s scrimmage will be canned goods that will be distributed to local food pantries.
