Loser's-Bracket Second Round
What looked to be a pitcher's duel early on turned into a rather large victory for the visiting Fort Gibson Tigers in Monday's game at Town Creek Park.
After trailing 1-0 in the opening inning, the Tigers used a six-run seventh inning to break open a close game en route to an 8-2 victory over the Pirates, who now have lost three straight after being within a game of winning the 2014 LeFlore County Tournament last week.
Monday Games Canceled Due to Wet Fields
Poteau was the only baseball team to play Monday as everyone else was canceled due to wet fields.
HULBERT â€” Poteau golfers Cody Shore and Jarrett Lowrimore were among the top medalists at Saturday's Fort Gibson Invitational at Western Hills Golf Course.
Shore won the individual title with a 70, while Lowrimore was eighth with an 80.
As a team, the Pirates were runners-up to the host Tigers. Fort Gibson's team score was 305, while Poteau had a 320.
John Scott Sanders had Poteau's third-best individual score with an 84, followed by Connor Wheat with an 86. Jeremiah Loggains shot a 92.
What a 2014 LeFlore County Baseball Tournament it was. It went the entire distance â€” needing Saturday afternoon's if-game to decide the champion, which was won by Spiro over Poteau.
We also had a triple play turned during the week, as Heavener turned one in Thursday's winner's-bracket semifinal against Spiro, but the Bulldogs still prevailed.
Most of the games were very competitive and rather entertaining with some extra-inning games thrown in.
The Carl Albert State College baseball team went toe to toe with the 2013 Division II national junior-college champions, the Murray State College Aggies, this past weekend. Each two-game series was a split.
The Vikings beat the Aggies 4-1 in Saturday afternoon's opener at Ival Goodman Field before losing the nightcap 4-0.
On Friday at the MSC Baseball Field in Tishomingo, it was the same. Carl Albert took the opener 1-0 before losing the nightcap 9-0.
The Vikings will play Independence, Kan., beginning at 2 this afternoon at Tulsa Metro Christian High School.
MIDWEST CITY â€” The Western Oklahoma State College Lady Pioneers, featuting former Poteau Lady Pirate Gabba Wilson, swept a pair of games from the Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings on Saturday afternoon at Rose State College. The Lady Pioneers took the opener 11-2, then doubled the Lady Vikings 8-4 in the nightcap.
Sunday's doubleheader got rained out, but it will be rescheduled at a later date since it is a conference twinbill.
CAMERON â€” It took two title games to decide LeFlore County supremacy on the baseball diamond for 2014. Both games were won by the top-seeded Spiro Bulldogs.
After the Bulldogs beat the defending champion Poteau Pirates 9-3 in Friday night's title game to force the if-game Saturday afternoon, the â€™Dogs used a three-run sixth inning to break an 8-all tie for an 11-9 victory to win the LeFlore County Baseball Tournament.
The Bulldogs reached the finals with a 10-7 victory Friday night over the Pocola Indians, who finished third.
MUSKOGEE â€” The Poteau High School track teams competed Friday at the Hilldale Invitational, with the Lady Pirates winning the team title with 105 points.
For the Pirates, Kendrick Hardaway was runner-up in the 100-meter dash (10.87 seconds, which is the fastest time among Class 4A sprinters).
ATOKA â€” The Poteau High School soccer teams dominated the Atoka squads Friday night at Phillips Field by identical 10-0 scores.
The Pirates will play at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Sequoyah-Claremore. Then both teams will hit the field Friday night at Fort Gibson, with the girls game at 5 p.m. and the boys contest at 7 p.m.
The first day of the LeFlore County Slow-Pitch Tournament has been canceled due to wet fields at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
Monday's games will take place on Tuesday, same times. The rest of the tournament's schedule has not yet been rescheduled.
