MULDROW â€” The Muldrow Lady Bulldogs got the season sweep of the Poteau Lady Pirates as Muldrow doubled Poteau 8-4 Tuesday afternoon.
It was a carbon copy of Muldrowâ€™s 10-6 victory in Poteau last month. Trailing 4-2 after the Lady Pirates scored four runs in the fifth inning, the Lady Bulldogs erupted for six runs in the sixth inning to snatch away the win.
Howe 5, Arkoma 3: In Howe, the Lady Lions broke a 2-all tie with a three-run sixth inning.
WHITESBORO â€” Whitesboro pitcher Joe Smith struck out 11 Leflore batters as the Bulldogs downed the visiting Savages 10-7 Tuesday afternoon.
Trailing 7-6 in the fourth inning, the â€™Dogs scored four runs in their half of the frame to get the come-from-behind win.
Howe 10, Clayton 2: Tuesday in Clayton, the Lions got a combined four-hitter from James Hill and Jake Lovell.
Hill got the win, pitching the first 5.1 innings with five strikeouts but allowing four hits, while Lovell went the final 1.2 innings with no hits allowed and four Ks.
The Arkoma Mustangs football team will begin a new venture Friday night. The Mustangs will play their first District B-4 game as they will pay a visit on the Gans Grizzlies for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
The Mustangs (1-0) opened the season last Friday night, handling LeFlore County rival Bokoshe 46-0.
Last season, if there was one team, other than Cashion or Ringling in the Class A playoffs, that gave the Talihina Golden Tigers a scare, it was the Antlers Bearcats, who ended up losing 32-13 to Talihina. However, it was anything but a cakewalk.
STILLWATER â€” The good news about last Saturday afternoon's home opener for the Oklahoma State Cowboys at Boone Pickens Stadium was they won, beating Missouri State 40-23. However, fans could tell the Pokes weren't as sharp as they looked in the season-opening 37-31 loss to No. 1 Florida State the week before.
The Poteau freshmen football team will have to wait a while to begin their season.
The Pirates had their Monday night season opener against Broken Bow canceled, and it will be made up as a part of a doubleheader with the junior varsity next Monday at Broken Bow's Memorial Stadium.
The freshmen will play at 6 p.m., followed by the JV at 7:30 p.m.
FORT SMITH, Ark. â€” Three of the four Bandit League teams posted season-opening wins in last weekend's four-game set with Fort Smith Catholic.
The sixth-grade team posted a 20-6 victory, the fifth-graders a 22-0 win and the fourth-grade a 30-0 victory. The only setback was a 13-7 win by FS Catholic in the third-grade game.
WISTER â€” After beating the Cameron Yellowjackets in Saturday night's Howe Wood Bat Tournament finals, the Wister Wildcats not only beat them once but twice in Monday's doubleheader. The â€™Cats took the opener 3-2, then handled the â€™Jackets 6-1.
Editor's note: Look for the details about Leflore's Monday home game with Okay in Thursday's edition.
The end to the Poteau Lady Pirates' home three-way was great, run-ruling the Sallisaw Lady Black Diamonds 10-0 in four innings. The start, however, wasn't, as the Lady Pirates fell 11-3 in a five-inning, run-rule contest to the Broken Bow Lady Savages.
In the win over Sallisaw, the Lady Pirates jumped out to a 5-0 lead after an inning.
In the loss to Broken Bow, the Lady Savages scored twice in the first inning and five runs in the second inning for a 7-0 lead as each inning was aided by two Poteau errors.
MUSKOGEE â€” The Poteau Lady Pirates cross country team came in second at the Bacone Invitational on Friday. The Lady Pirates had 77 points for second place, coming in behind team champion Anadarko (62 points).
Four Lady Pirates finished in the top 20, led by Kandace Standridge who was fifth (7:50) in the 2k run. Sheridan Hoyer was 15th (8:18), Kylanna Hardaway 17th (8:29) and Maddison Williamson 18th (8:30).
