WILBURTON — Thanks to a win by the Howe Lady Lions Thursday night in the Class 2A Area Tournament at the new Wilburton High School Gym, it set up a rematch of the 2012 LeFlore County Tournament finals.
The Lady Lions defeated the Sallisaw-Central Lady Tigers 45-30 to reach Friday afternoon's consolation semifinals — and second contest against the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers, who lost 31-27 to the Lady Lions in the County Tournament title game in January.
The luck was not as good for the Wister Wildcats, who lost 45-40 to the Porter Consolidated Pirates to see their season end at 19-9.
