The Pirates were slated to meet Muldrow Friday night in the championship semifinals for the right to play for the championship this afternoon in Wilburton.
The other local team in the field, the Heavener Wolves, fell 9-1 to the Eufaula Ironheads.

MIAMI, Okla. â€” The Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings softball team dropped a pair of games Thursday afternoon to the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Lady Norse by scores of 2-0 and 5-1.
The Lady Vikings were to have played a doubleheader today (Saturday) against Rose State College in Midwest City, then play a twinbill Sunday afternoon in Altus against Western Oklahoma State College, but both set of games were rained out. Both are trying to be rescheduled, but have not been done so at this time.
Earlier this season, the Carl Albert State College Vikings baseball team went to its archrival, Eastern Oklahoma State College, in Wilburton, and left town with a victory.
Tuesday afternoon at Ival Goodman Field, the Mountaineers returned the favor by run ruling the Vikings 16-5 in seven innings of a scheduled nine-inning contest.
After Carl Albert played Murray State in a road doubleheader Thursday afternoon at the MSC Baseball Field in Tishomingo, the Vikings will welcome the Aggies for a twinbill beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday at Ival Goodman Field.
