The Poteau Lady Pirates and the Pocola Lady Indians were seeded No. 1 and 2, respectively, in last monthâ€™s seeding meeting. Going into Tuesday nightâ€™s title game, the seeding held true.
The Lady Pirates and the Lady Indians played in late Tuesday afternoonâ€™s winnerâ€™s bracket final at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex to see who played for the county title later that night.
The Lady Pirates handled Howe 14-0, then beat Heavener 4-0 on Day 1 on Monday at the PARC to make it to within two wins of another county slow-pitch title.
The Lady Indians also went 2-0 on the day, blanking Cameron 11-0 in three innings and shutting out Wister 3-0.
When action started Tuesday afternoon, only six of the nine teams were in the field. While Poteau and Pocola were in the winnerâ€™s bracket, Heavener, Panama, Wister and Howe were in the loserâ€™s bracket.
Heavener and Wister each went 1-1 on Monday. The Lady Wolves clawed Whitesboro 17-2 in five innings before losing to Poteau.
The Lady Wildcats beat Panama 3-2 in eight innings before falling to Pocola.
The Lady Razorbacks bounced back from the loss to Wister to eliminate Talihina 13-5 in five innings and do the same to Cameron with a 13-3 victory in four innings.
The Lady Lions, who opened the tournament with a 14-3 five-inning, mercy-rule win over tournament host Talihina, staved off elimination with a 9-6 win over Whitesboro. The loss sent the Lady Bulldogs home.
