TAHLEQUAH â€” The Spiro Lady Bulldogs softball team was going to have to do things the hard way Thursday afternoon if they were going to be playing in next week's Class 3A State Tournament.
In the Class 3A Regional Tournament Wednesday afternoon, the Lady Bulldogs suffered a heart-breaking, nine-inning, 3-2 loss to the Beggs Lady Golden Demons in their first game of the tournament. However, they bounced back with just as thrilling a game, edging the Adair Lady Warriors in eight innings.
The Poteau Pirates football team will look to snap a two-game losing streak when they travel to play the Tulsa Webster Warriors at 7:30 p.m. tonight for a District 4A-4 contest.
The Pirates (2-2 overall, 0-1 in district play) lost last week's district opener 42-16 to the Hilldale Hornets â€” which came after a Week 3 31-16 setback at the hands of the Gravette (Ark.) Lions.
If there is a silver lining in the clouds from last week's district-opening loss, it's that the Pirates may have solved some of their deficiencies.
While it took four games to do it, the Bokoshe Tigers won their first game of the season last week against Eagle Point Christian Academy in a dramatic 48-42 win.
After four weeks, the Talihina Golden Tigers will finally get to play a District 2A-6 contest. The Golden Tigers (4-0, 0-0 in district play), ranked 10th in the Class 2A Poll, will entertain the Panama Razorbacks (0-4, 0-1) at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Doc Robinson Stadium.
