MUSKOGEE â€” Poteau Lady Pirates cross country runner Kandace Standridge was runner-up in Saturday morningâ€™s Bacone College Invitational. She ran the 5,000-meter course in a time of 19:45.
BOSWELL â€” Whitesboro pitcher Ethan Adams threw a three-inning perfect game as the Bulldogs routed the Achille Eagles 15-0 as part of a three-way Friday afternoon.
However, Whitesboro coach Bryan Cartwright's team got handled by his brother Alan's team from Boswell as the Scorpions got a no-hitter from their pitcher against the â€™Dogs in a 12-0 victory.
When new Poteau football coach Forrest Mazey came on board last spring, he was well aware of the rushing expertise of senior Roger Barcheers, but he also knew that the Pirates were loaded and deep at all the skill positions. He introduced the Pirates to a full-blown no-huddle speed offense. What was learned at the abbreviated scrimmage Friday night against the Heavener Wolves at Harvey Stadium was that even though the offensive schemes are still in its infancy, Poteauâ€™s opponents must be ready for the Pirates moving the ball.
The Pocola Indians entertained the Gore Pirates on Friday nightÂ at John Carter Field in their first scrimmage of the 2015 football season. The Indians scored three times, while holding the Pirates out of the end zone for the entire contest.
PANAMA â€” New Panama football coach Jeff Broyles liked most of what he saw in his Razorbacksâ€™ home scrimmage against Savanna on Friday night at George Ollie Stadium.
TALIHINA â€” The Talihina Lady Golden Tigers got a home win Thursday afternoon, beating the Arkoma Lady Mustangs 10-4.
The Lady Golden Tigers scored three runs in the first inning, then added four more in the second to take a 7-0 lead after two innings.
Spiro 5, Roland 0: In Spiro, the Lady Bulldogs jumped out to a 2-0 lead after an inning, which was more than enough run support for Shakyrah Gladness, who got the seven-inning victory as she threw a no-hitter with 12 strikeouts.
WHITESBORO â€” Whitesboro pitcher Sawyer Adams got his first win of the season as he two-hit Clayton in an 8-0 victory in a game of Bulldogs that went only five innings due to the run rule.
Most of the final day of action at the 20th annual Carl Albert State College Fall Baseball Classic, with all of the final day's worth of games at both the Oktaha Softball Tournament and the Robbers Cave Shootout softball tournament in Wilburton, were rained out Saturday.
The CASC Classic finals between Wister and Red Oak will take place at 7 p.m. Monday at Poteau High School's Town Creek Park after the Wildcats play their regularly-scheduled home game at 4 p.m. against McCurtain.
The third-place game between Crowder and Kiowa will take place at 5 p.m. Monday at Town Creek Park.
