The previous two times the Poteau Lady Pirates and the Spiro Lady Bulldogs played, the games were close. In Thursday night's 2011 LeFlore County Fast-Pitch Softball Tournament winner's-bracket final at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex, it was not close.
Due to seven Spiro miscues, Poteau ended up winning 8-0 in a five-inning, run-rule contest to reach Thursday night's championship game.
The Lady Bulldogs were in the loser's-bracket final Thursday night against Panama, which stayed alive with a 5-0 win over Wister Wednesday night.
Both the Lady Razorbacks and the Lady Wildcats won their first elimination games of the night on Wednesday. Panama run ruled Howe 11-1, while Wister outlasted Heavener 9-6.
