Thursday night was filled with good and not-so-good news for the Heavener Lady Wolves softball team as the 2014 LeFlore County Slow-Pitch Softball Tournament ended at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
The not-so-good news was the Lady Wolves suffered their first loss of the 2014 slow-pitch season when the Pocola Lady Indians run ruled them 12-4 in five innings after losing to Heavener 10-2 in a run-ruled contest in the winner's-bracket final.
The good news for the Lady Wolves was they won their first-ever county title as they outlasted the Lady Indians 14-12 in the winner-take-all title game that ended at about 11 p.m.
The Lady Indians knocked out the defending champion Poteau Lady Pirates 7-6 in the loser's-bracket final after the Lady Pirates avenged their tournament loss Tuesday night to the Wister Lady Wildcats 9-3 in the loser's-bracket semifinal.
Both Poteau and Wister won their loser's-bracket quarterfinal contests, both rather handedly. Poteau beat Whitesboro 12-2, while Wister defeated Cameron 17-3.
In Thursday's edition, a Wister base runner was misidentified in the photograph due to given misinformation. The base runner scoring was Tristan Hagelberger.
