RED OAK â€” The Cameron Yellowjackets found some redemption Thursday afternoon at the Eagle Classic at Eagle Field.
After being run ruled 12-0 in three innings by Oktaha in Wednesday afternoon's opener, the Yellowjackets bounced back with a run-rule victory of their own with a 12-1, four-inning, run-rule win over the Smithville Braves Thursday afternoon.
But the news was not as good for another LeFlore County team as the Howe Lions were run ruled by the host Red Oak Eagles 12-0 in three innings Wednesday afternoon.
The trio of families, the Adamses, the Midgleys and the Wickwares, loaded up and headed to Lake Eufaula on Saturday.
We started over at Eufaula Cove and went to Jellystone Park. They have a â€śWipeout Courseâ€ť out there in the cove, and it's harder than it looks! I was out of breath just after my first pass. They had a huge slide and water trampoline, too!
It costs just $10, and you get to do all the following â€” paddle boats, kayaking, putt-putt, shuffleboard, swimming, arcade and â€” my favorite â€” the snack bar. It's a real cool place to take the kids and have a blast.
RED OAK â€” During Wednesday afternoon's game in the Eagle Classic, Cameron Baseball Coach Kevin Lomon asked Tournament Director and Red Oak Coach Trey Booth if he could start the contest all over once more. Lomon and the Yellowjackets would have done anything to get an answer of yes.
The Oktaha Tigers blasted the â€™Jackets for nine runs in the first inning en route to a 12-0, three-inning, run-rule victory in the opening round of the Classic at Eagle Field.
A lot of people, especially the Talihina Golden Tigers football team itself, is anxious to see just how good they can be this season with a bunch of new faces.
That first chance will come at 7 p.m. tonight at Doc Robinson Stadium in a scrimmage against the Quinton Savages.
SPIRO â€” Meochea McKesson's two-out, RBI single with the bases loaded in the eighth inning lifted the Spiro Lady Bulldogs to a 9-8 victory over the Panama Lady Razorbacks.
Arkoma 8, Wilson 3; Panola 9, Arkoma 7: At Robbers Cave Shootout in Wilburton, the Lady Mustangs (2-5) split their first two games in the weeklong event.
Heavener 12, Westville 3; Kansas 8, Heavener 2: In Westville, the Lady Wolves (5-2) split their games in Tuesday's three-way.
Keota 11, Pocola 3: In Pocola, the Lady Indians (1-4) took a 2-1 lead in the opening inning.
SMITHVILLE â€” The Wister Wildcats ran their record to 3-0 Tuesday afternoon with a 17-4 five-inning, run-rule victory over the Smithville Braves.
Braggs 10, Leflore 2: In Braggs, the loss dropped the Savages to 1-2 on the season.
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.
