BROKEN ARROW, OK — The Pryor softballers came home from the Broken Arrow Tournament with a 2-3 record, but they were just a few bad bounces from starting the season 5-0.

The Lady Tigers opened the tourney Friday with a 3-2 defeat at the hands of 6A Bixby. Pryor then pummeled 4A Glenpool (8-0) and 6A Edmond North (7-3) to close Day 1.

Saturday began with an 8-7 loss to 4A Berryhill and ended with a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Class 6A foe Yukon.

Adair, the smallest school at the tournament, limped back to Mayes County after a 1-4 showing against some of the best big-school teams in the state.

The Lady Warriors dropped their first game Friday, a 6-2 decision against 5A Coweta, before a enduring a brutal stretch of 6A competition.

Westmoore closed Adair's first day with a 15-2 walloping and Southmoore continued the trend early Saturday with a 9-2 win. The Lady Warriors broke through against Bartlesville late Saturday, notching a 7-3 victory — their first of the season.

Locust Grove saw action Saturday as well, dropping their home opener to Muldrow, 4-2. The loss dropped the Lady Pirates to 0-2 on the year.
