The Kingfisher â€™Jackets let a 4-0 lead evaporate in Tuesday's opening-round 5-4, seven-inning loss to the Shawnee Muck Dogs to begin the 2011 OK Kids Midget State Tournament at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.
The â€™Jackets made sure another lead didn't evaporate on Wednesday afternoon â€” but it wasn't easy.
Kingfisher had a 10-2 lead after three innings, but had to hang on for dear life to defeat the Elk City Brown Sox 11-8 to stay alive in the tournament.
The â€™Jackets (46-10) will play the Tushka Tigers at 4 p.m. this afternoon in another elimination game, while the loss ends the season for the Brown Sox (47-9).
