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.

â€śIt was a very disappointing and heartbreaking loss,â€ť Heavener Coach John Thompson said.
