MUSKOGEE — Midnight struck Cinderella's ball at about 2:45 p.m. Thursday.
The Cinderella playoff run for the Poteau Lady Pirates came to an screeching halt with a 73-48 loss to the Jay Lady Bulldogs Thursday afternoon in the Class 4A Area Tournament.
The Lady Pirates end their season at 8-20.
Trailing 13-10 after one period, the Lady Bulldogs scored the second quarter's first 13 points to take a 23-13 lead with just less than three minutes left before halftime.
