SPIRO â€” It took every game slated in the 2012 LeFlore County Baseball Tournament to decide the champion this year, but the Wister Wildcats were able to dethrone the Spiro Bulldogs.
After the â€˜Dogs forced the second title game with a 9-4 win Friday night, the â€™Cats came back to win the winner-take-all contest Saturday afternoon by a score of 5-3.
The Bulldogs, who suffered a 7-5 loss to Wister in Thursday night's winner's-bracket final, reached the championship round with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the Pocola Indians on Friday. The Indians finished third.
