Tigers, T-Wolves cap tourneys with losses

NORMAN — After run-ruling its first two opponents in the Choctaw tournament, Norman High fell 13-2 to Bishop McGuinness in the final game.

Holding back part of its pitching staff for Monday’s district game against Edmond Memorial, the Tigers couldn’t contain a high-powered Irish offense.

NHS opened the day with a 12-3, run-rule victory over Oklahoma Christian before falling to McGuinness. Coming out of the tournament at 7-7 after two wins, coach Pete Sangirardi said his team is taking momentum into the Edmond Memorial games.

“We’re battling and hovering around that .500 mark, so we’re at least right there,” he said. “With district standings, Monday’s game is more important than the tournament, so that’s what we’re focusing on.”

Lawton 6, Norman North 5: Norman North came close, but the T-Wolves couldn’t defend their title at the Bo Bowman tournament on Saturday in Lawton.

The host team defeated North 6-5 in the championship game, a contest in which the T-Wolves came close but couldn’t close out.

“Lawton hadn’t won this tournament since 1992 and they were fired up and ready to play, and you’ve got to tip your hats to them,” coach Brian Aylor said. “We made five or six errors that were costly and we left the bases loaded twice including in the seventh inning. We had our opportunities.”

The loss ended North’s weekend at the tournament at 2-1 as the T-Wolves head into a busy district week. North has district games with Putnam City North on Monday and Tuesday and a make-up district game against Southmoore on Friday.
