WISTER â€” It looked like there was going to be a winner-take-all game Wednesday afternoon in the Class 2A District Tournament. After the homestanding Wister Lady Wildcats handled the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers 8-2 in Tuesday's opening game, Talihina jumped out to a lead in the nightcap, which looked somewhat of a safe lead.
However, the Lady â€˜Cats would have none of it as they rallied from a 6-0 deficit, and withstood a seventh-inning Talihina rally, to down the Lady Golden Tigers by a score of 9-8 in the second game to win the district tournament title â€” and advance to next week's Class 2A Regional Tournament.
Wister will find out early next week where, who and when the Lady â€™Cats will play in the regional tournament, while the losses ended Talihina's season.
