SAFE! — Durant Rangers' base-runner Christian Giles, left, slides safely back to third base on a pick-off attempt as Holdenville Outlaws' third baseman Tucker Elliott is late in getting the tag applied during the second inning of Saturday night's first title game of the 2011 OK Kids Midget State Tournament at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex.

The Durant Rangers needed at least one win to keep their season going, and force a second championship game against the Holdenville Outlaws in the 2011 OK Kids Midget State Tournament Saturday night at the Poteau Area Recreational Complex. They did just that.
The combination of a three-run second inning and the pitching of Durant starter Lukas Long was enough as the Rangers held off a late rally by the Outlaws to win 3-2.
