OKLAHOMA CITY - The Morris Lady Eagles made their first fastpitch softball state tournament appearance since 2011 special by reaching the semifinals of the 3-day event last weekend at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.

The Lady Eagles entered the 8-team tournament as the only unranked team and were given the task of taking on top-ranked Tahlequah Sequoyah in the quarterfinals last Thursday evening.

The Morris ladies proved to the other seven teams that they belonged in the state tournament, routing the Lady Indians 10-0 in six innings in last Thursday's final opening-round contest of the day.

The Lady Eagles looked poised to earn their fifth-consecutive win over a Class 3A Top 15 team last Friday afternoon, leading the sixth-ranked Oktaha Lady Tigers 4-2 after five innings of play in the final Class 3A semifinal game.

OKMULGEE - For the first time since 2012, the Morris Eagles recorded a 3-win season in varsity football this past Friday night with a 41-12 win over the Okmulgee Bulldogs at historic Harmon Field.

The Eagles also earned their first district win since 2015, when the Morris squad earned a 30-0 win over the same  Bulldog team in the final game of the 2015 regular season.

In the win, Morris totaled 406 yards on offense - all on the ground. Most of the rushing total was earned by senior tailback Logan Stacy.

Stacy finished with a career-best 332 yards on 31 carries and 4 TDs to put the 5-10, 165-pound, tailback over the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the 2017 season. Stacy's previous career-high rushing total was a 247-yard performance against Checotah on September 22 in Morris.

HASKELL - The Henryetta Golden Knight varsity football team felt a little case of déjà vu last Friday night in their District 2A-5 opener against the Haskell Haymakers.

Last year, the Knights dropped their first five games before earning their first win with a 41-6 win over Haskell at historic Cameron Field in Henryetta.

Fast forward 12 months.

In 2017, the Henryetta squad entered last Friday's district opener with an identical 0-5 record and the Haymakers became the first team to be defeated by the Knights, as Henryetta walked off Haskell's home field with a 40-26 victory, snapping the 5-game losing streak to begin 2017.

The 14-point win actually snapped an 8-game losing streak for the Henryetta squad with the last win for the Knights coming in Week 8 of the 2016 campaign - a 56-55 win over Okemah.
