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.
Poteau's Brenna Vise hit a 3-point basket to cut the deficit to 23-16 with two minutes remaining in the first half. Jay took a 24-19 lead at the break.
The Lady Pirates outscored the Lady Bulldogs 6-2 to begin the third period to cut Jay's lead to 26-25 with six minutes remaining in the quarter. But that was as close as Poteau got.
Over the next four minutes, Jay outscored Poteau 15-6 to rake a 41-31 lead with two minutes left in the period, which became a 52-38 advantage with six minutes left to play in the game.
