Heavener Wolves football coach used a stall tactic â€” or Stallings, as in Dillan Stallings, tactic â€” in getting his team a season-opening win over the homestanding Atoka Wampus Cats on Friday night at Phillips Field.
Stallings scored four touchdowns and a two-point conversion to help the Wolves down the Wampus Cats 32-14.
HOWE â€” Wister pitcher Scotty Gibson no-hit the Cameron Yellowjackets to lead the Wildcats to a 2-1 victory to win the 2014 Howe Wood Bat Tournament on Saturday night at Lions Field.
The â€™Cats reached the finals with a 7-1 victory over the Leflore Savages in Saturday afternoonâ€™s championship semifinals.
The â€™Jackets made the title game with a 4-2 win over the Smithville Braves, who beat the Savages 5-4 in the third-place game.
TUSHKA â€” Kati Pattersonâ€™s two-out, three-run double propelled the Wister Lady Wildcats to a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the Tushka Lady Tigers to win the Tushka Tournament on Saturday.
The Lady Wildcats beat the Pocola Lady Indians 4-2 in the winnerâ€™s-bracket finals and the Rock Creek Lady Mustangs 1-0 in the winnerâ€™s-bracket semifinals.
The host Lady Tigers blanked the Lady Indians 3-0 in the loserâ€™s-bracket final after Pocola lost to Wister.
TALIHINA â€” The Poteau Lady Pirates ended last week on a high note with a 9-3 road win over the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers on Friday afternoon.
The Lady Pirates broke a 3-all tie with a pair of three-run innings in the fifth and sixth innings for a 9-3 lead.
Poteau took a 3-0 lead after two innings with a single run in the opening frame and two runs in the third inning, only to see Talihina score three in the fourth inning to knot the game at 3.
Leflore 5, Cameron 4: In Leflore, Kaylee Roath got the win for the Lady Savages. Camri Duncan was 2-for-2 with two runs batted in.

TUSHKA â€” Wister sophomore pitcher Hunter Gibson had a double-digit strikeout performance for the second straight day as the Lady Wildcats beat the Dickson Lady Comets 4-1 Friday afternoon in the Tushka Tournament.
Gibson, who struck out 11 Howe Lady Lions on Thursday, fanned 10 Dickson batters in her complete-game victory.
The Lady â€™Cats scored single runs in each of the first two innings for a 2-0 lead, which was plenty of run support for Wister's ace.

The Poteau Pirates did the one thing they feared doing the most, and that was to get behind early against the Alma [Ark.] Airedales in Thursday nightâ€™s Hootenâ€™s Classic at Mayo-Thompson Stadium at Fort Smith Northside High School. It seem like they were down 15-0 before the last cord of the national anthem had faded into the ozone layer.
Alma scored two touchdowns on an extremely short field in the opening period.
Too, the Pirates looked good on two drives of 15 and 14 plays, but when the Pirates got close to Almaâ€™s end zone, they lost their rhythm. Also, Alma played strong defense.
The latest installment of the LeFlore County 8-man rivalry went the way of the visiting Arkoma Mustangs as they corralled the homestanding Bokoshe Tigers 46-0 Friday night at Tiger Stadium in a game ended by the mercy rule with 9:54 left in the third quarter.
The Tigers started on offense but their drive stalled after four plays, and the Mustangs took possession of the ball at the Bokoshe 33-yard line.
The Mustangs ran the simplest of base plays as Landin Duzan followed his trap block all the way home for a 33 yard TD. Dakotah Roam added the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.
