With no team to play for either the Poteau Lady Pirates (since the Cameron Lady Yellowjackets had to cancel because of lack of players) or the Heavener Lady Wolves (since they were not put into the bracket at the two-day Westville Tournament for Monday and Tuesday), the two LeFlore County locals met to do battle Tuesday afternoon.
In a game Poteau Coach Misty Collins called â€śugly,â€ť the Lady Pirates run ruled the Lady Wolves 13-5 in six innings.
The Heavener Wolves are poised to try to make sure that what happened to begin the 2010 football season does not happen when they open the 2011 season at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Savanna.
Last year, the Bulldogs took advantage of a special teams miscue inside the Heavener 5 with about 60 seconds left to play and scored to seal a 14-6 victory at Harvey Stadium.
â€śIt was a very disappointing and heartbreaking loss,â€ť Heavener Coach John Thompson said.

Cameron High School baseball player Austin Standridge is trying to make some noise â€” this time off the field. The Yellowjacket athlete is trying to help raise money for breast-cancer victims.
For each home run that Standridge hits this fall, money will be donated to the LeFlore County chapter of the American Cancer Society. It's his Future Farmers of America (FFA) project.
Donations may be made by either donating so much for every homer Standridge hits or a one-time monetary amount. All funds will stay in LeFlore County.
