DALE â€” Last spring, the Wister Wildcats defeated the Dale Pirates to win the Class 2A State Tournament.
In a match-up Saturday afternoon between the same two teams which came about due to the Union City Festival being rained out Thursday and Friday, the Pirates avenged that loss â€” and in a big way.
The combination of a fast start and four Wister errors, the Pirates ended up run ruling the â€™Cats 12-0.
