MUSKOGEE â€” It was a rough Saturday of softball for the Poteau Lady Pirates as they lost 8-0 to the Dale Lady Pirates.
Poteau's second game of the day against Pryor was rained out, and likely will not be rescheduled since the playoffs will begin for Poteau here at 4 p.m. Tuesday against Roland in the Class 4A District Tournament.
Dale erupted for eight runs in the first inning.
