For two innings, Tuesday afternoon's fast-pitch softball game between the Wister Lady Wildcats and the Poteau Lady Pirates looked as if one run would win the contest.
Then, came the third inning.
Poteau sent 14 batters to the plate in an 11-run offensive outburst as the Lady Pirates ended up run ruling the Lady Wildcats 12-0 in three innings.
WILBURTON â€” The Howe Lady Lions beat two teams, and posted three wins, at the Robbers Cave Shootout on Tuesday.
Howe rallied to down Canadian 7-2, then had another rally to post a 4-3 victory over Weleetka.
The Weleetka game was to have been against Clayton, but at game time Clayton forfeited the game to Howe, thus the Lady Lions' third win on the day. So, the Lady Lions played the Lady Outlaws in their place.
The Poteau Lady Pirates began their home season of their fall 2011 campaign Monday night in fine fashion as they run ruled the Pocola Lady Indians 11-1 in four innings.
The game was originally scheduled to be played in Pocola, but its field was unplayable â€” so, the match-up was moved to Poteau.

WISTER â€” After being rained out in their season openers Friday in Red Oak's three-way with Fort Towson, the Wister Wildcats came back with a vengeance as they swept a doubleheader from the Cameron Yellowjackets by scores of 11-4 and 12-0 â€” the latter being a four-inning, run-rule contest â€” Monday afternoon.
