The girls’ finals for the 2021 LeFlore County Tournament have been set after Thursday’s semifinal games.
Top-seeded Howe will play second-seeded Pocola Saturday at 7 p.m. in Howe. This will be the third time in the last four years for the two teams to play for the championship.
Howe will be going for its seventh-straight championship, which would tie the Lady Lions with the Spiro boys from 1956 through 1961 with the most consecutive championships.
The Lady Lions got past Whitesboro, 45-36, while Pocola was too much for Heavener in a 68-38 victory. In addition to the championship game, Whitesboro visits Heavener in the third-place game Saturday at Heavener at 1 p.m.
The consolation games were also decided Thursday. The Cameron girls overcame Panama, 60-49, while Pocola’s boys edged Heavener, 48-45.
