HEAVENER â€” After getting strong pitching in their season-opening win on Monday from the combination of Parker Johnson and Grant Severe, along came Connor Mangham for the Pocola Indians.
Mangham thew a no-hitter, and missed out on a perfect game by a batter, as the Indians blanked the Heavener Wolves 6-0 Tuesday afternoon.
Mangham struck out 17 batters, and only allowed one batter to reach by a base on balls. That baserunner was later caught stealing on a strikeout-throwout double play, so that the Indian starter only faced the minimum 21 batters for the game.
