There will be one more game for four county basketball teams in the 81st LeFlore County Tournament.
The Whitesboro Bulldogs and the Heavener Lady Wolves reached Friday's fifth-place games with wins Wednesday at Carl Albert State College's Mick Thompson Fieldhouse.
The â€™Dogs downed the Panama Razorbacks 68-59 to make it to Friday's 5:30 p.m. fifth-place game against Pocola at the Wister High School gym.
The Lady Wolves got past the Arkoma Lady Mustangs 55-46 to set up Friday afternoon's fifth-place gamne against Spiro at 4 p.m. in Wister.
WISTER â€” Two local teams, the Pocola Indians and the Spiro Lady Bulldogs, responded to quarterfinal losses with strong performances Wednesday night in the 81st LeFlore County Tournament at the Wister High School gym.
Two others, the tournament-host Wister Wildcats and the Bokoshe Lady Tigers, had to go overtime before punching their tickets to Thursday night's consolation finals.
For the second straight game, D. Brown had a strong offensive showing with 20 points that included five 3-point baskets. However, this time it wasnâ€™t enough for the Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings in their 64-53 loss to the 22nd-ranked Northern Oklahoma College-Enid Lady Jets on Wednesday night at the Mabee Center in Enid.
A dominant effort on both ends of the floor allowed the NOC-Enid Jets to come away with an impressive 81-47 win over the Carl Albert State College Vikings in the second game Wednesday night.
There are six players who are part of the Class of 2013 for the Poteau Lady Pirates softball team. The third athlete punched her ticket to play at the next level.
Poteau outfielder Shelby Standridge inked her name on the dotted line of her letter of intent to play college softball with Connors State College in Warner in a ceremony Wednesday morning at the high school.
This week is the 81st Leflore County Basketball Tournament. Wister is the host this year, so Paula and I have been running the clock and book at the Carl Albert State College site for the first three days.
We have got a chance to see some pretty good games early on, and look forward to the rest of the week. Come out and support these young men and women as they compete for school and community.
Good luck to all the teams in the county tournament!
Have a great week!
