A seventh-inning rally by the Stigler Panthers propeled them to a 5-3 come-from-behind victory over the Poteau Pirates on Tuesday afternoon at Town Creek Park.
Down 3-1 with only three outs remaining, Austin Drewry's RBI single and a three-run home run by Quantez Jim produced four runs to give the Panthers the win.
Howe 12, Bokoshe 4: In Bokoshe, the Lions jumped out to a 6-0 lead after an inning, aided by six of the nine Bokoshe errors in the game.
HEAVENER â€” The Heavener Lady Wolves continued their winning ways Tuesday afternoon, run ruling the Wister Lady Wildcats 8-0 in five innings.
The Lady Wolves, fresh off last week's first-ever county softball tournament title, broke a scoreless tie with a single run in the second inning and two in the third. Then, a five-run fifth inning that ended with Mattison Place's three-run home run put the game into run-rule status.

I was hoping that the 2014 LeFlore County Slow-Pitch Softball Tournament would be as exciting as the baseball one was the week before. I got my wish.
Just like the baseball county tournament, the slow-pitch county tournament was forced to the if-game â€” and an if-game that had some drama as until the final out was made the game was still in doubt. We saw a new county queen crowned, the Heavener Lady Wolves, as they won the school's first-ever softball county title. However, they also suffered their first loss of the season, losing to Pocola in the first title game Thursday night.
BATTIEST â€” The Whitesboro Lady Bulldogs went 1-2 in the Battiest Tournament this past weekend. After beating Roland 7-6 on Friday, they lost later that day 7-3 to host Battiest and fell 9-1 to Broken Bow on Saturday.
Talihina's games in the event were not reported by press time.
