HEAVENER â€” The Heavener Wolves hung tough, but they suffered a 20-7 loss to the Wilburton Diggers in District 2A-6 action Friday night at Harvey Stadium.
The Diggers (4-2 overall, 3-0 in district play), winners of four straight, scored 14 points in the opening period, but the Heavener defense held strong the rest of the first half.
The lone score for the Wolves (1-5, 0-3), losers of four straight, was a 57-yard touchdown pass reception by Shaun Bradley to cut the deficit to 13-7, but that was as close as the Wolves got.

The Lady â€™Backs and the Lady Tigers made it to the Class 2A State Tournament championship game Saturday afternoon.
â€śI went one time for the state title, and got the silver glove,â€ť Panama Coach Grant Ralls said. â€śThis time, we want to go home with the gold glove. We have a shot at it. Oktaha beat us 1-0 with three starters gone. We're going to get after it. We're ready.â€ť
The Poteau Lady Pirates softball team almost did the miraculous in staving off elimination three times to get to next week's Class 4A State Tournament. But in the end it was just too much to ask.
After routing Stilwell 13-0 in the loser's-bracket final of the Class 4A Regional Tournament Thursday afternoon, the Lady Pirates beat Fort Gibson 6-1 in the first title game, but lost 10-3 in the if-game to see their season end at 29-7.

EDMOND â€” The Poteau Lady Pirates cross country team was ninth and the Pirates 14th at Friday's Class 4A Pre-State Meet at Mitch Park â€” the site of the Class 4A State Meet.

After a rough first three innings in Wednesday night's Class 4A Regional Tournament winner's-bracket final against Fort Gibson, the Poteau Lady Pirates made a nice rally. But the bad news was the rally fell short as the Lady Tigers prevailed 5-4.
The Poteau Lady Pirates softball team took the first step in making it to next week's Class 4A State Tournament.
The Lady Pirates handled the Stilwell Lady Indians 8-3 Wednesday afternoon to make it to Wednesday night's winner's-bracket final against the Fort Gibson Lady Tigers (25-10), who defeated the Broken Bow Lady Savages 7-0 in Game 2 Wednesday afternoon.
â€śIt was a long wait,â€ť Poteau Coach Misty Collins said.
The winner of Wednesday night's Poteau-Fort Gibson game will advance to this afternoon's title game at 2 p.m., with the if-game at 4 p.m.
It looked like last week, the Poteau Pirates were going to snatch a win away from the jaws of defeat last Friday night against Tulsa Webster. Instead, the Warriors scored in the waning moments to snatch the win away from Poteau. Needless to say, the Pirates were very disappointed.
