ROFF â€” Since Saturdayâ€™s three-way at Cameron with Dale was rained out, the Wister Wildcats went two hours west to Pontotoc County to meet perennial baseball power Roff in a doubleheader.
The Tigers swept the Wildcats by scores of 5-0 and 13-5.
Games Canceled Due to Wet Fields
Several games were canceled due to wet fields both Saturday and Monday.
When I first heard the news of Adrian Peterson being arrested for child abuse, I thought, it can't get any worse than this â€” and then I got the details of what he did.
He did nothing more than switch his child. A form of discipline that he grew up with and what probably made him the player and the person he is today. He left a few welts on his child's legs.
My goodness, one time my grandmother switched me, and I thought was going to kill me.
Why is everybody getting their panties in a wad about AD for disciplining his child and calling for the reinstatement of Ray Rice?
ADA â€” Poteauâ€™s Kandace Standridge, who was the Class 4A 800-meter run state champion, won the East Central University Invitational cross country meet Thursday, running the course in 13:09.
As a team, the Lady Pirates were fourth with 121 points, finishing behind host Ada (61 points), Kingston (97) and DeQueen, Ark. (104).
Standridge was joined by teammate Sheridan Hoyer in the top 10, as the Poteau senior was ninth (14:40).
There should have been the opening-day games of the 2014 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament tonight. However, Mother Nature had other ideas.
Due to wet fields, todayâ€™s opening-day games were postponed until Tuesday, with Tuesdayâ€™s originally-slated games taking place Thursday. Thursdayâ€™s games will take place Monday, meaning it will be next week before the county champion will be crowned.
BOKOSHE â€” The good news for the Bokoshe Tigers is they played a much better football game in Friday nightâ€™s District C-4 opener against the Bowlegs Bison at Tiger Stadium than the week before against Arkoma in the season opener.
Unfortunately for the Tigers, they still came up short as they lost in overtime 28-20 to the Bison.
The Tigers tied the game at 20-all on a 31-yard run by Christian Stroup.
GANS â€” The Arkoma Mustangs, who made history last football season by winning the schoolâ€™s first-ever playoff game, had a chance to make some more history Friday night in their District B-4 opener against the homestanding Gans Grizzlies. Unfortunately, the Mustangs couldnâ€™t close the deal.
The Grizzlies, who trailed 42-32 entering the final period, scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to rally for a 48-42 victory over the Mustangs.
The Mustangs still had a chance to down the Grizzlies, but Arkoma fumbled the ball at the Gans 10 with about two minutes to play.
Three people were injured Sunday in an accident in Hughes County.
