CAMERON — The Wister Wildcats took the first step in defending their county title Monday night with a 12-4 come-from-behind victory over the Howe Lions on opening-day action of the LeFlore County Tournament.
The Lions opened the day with a comeback 3-2 win over the Leflore Savages.
The last game of the night also saw a comeback as the host Cameron Yellowjackets rallied past the Heavener Wolves 8-6.
However, everyone will have to wait until at least Friday to play their next tournament game as Tuesday’s slate of games was rained out.
Tentatively, the ‘Cats will play Spiro in a rematch of last year’s title game at 4 p.m. Friday in Cameron in the winner’s-bracket quarterfinals right before the ’Jackets and Poteau play at 6 p.m. Friday.
The Lions, Savages and Wolves will be elimination games on Friday, with Howe meeting the winner of the Pocola-Whitesboro game at 2 p.m. in Cameron and Leflore facing former coach Todd Hackler and the Wolves 4 p.m. Friday in Poteau.
