NORMAN - Maybe a third time will be the charm for the Class 3A state slow-pitch softball tournament.
It originally was to start Wednesday, but was pushed back because of a wet field.
Then on Thursday, one game was completed and another made it to the ninth inning before heavy rains forced another postponement.
Now, the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association will attempt to get the tournament completed either Monday or Tuesday.
“We're disappointed - we wanted to play,” Welch coach Josh Schertz said. “You just have to roll with it and play whenever we get to.
“I hear its supposed to rain Sunday night into Monday, so who knows when we will get it finished.”
Cameron beat Wilson 3-2 in the day's first game. Originally scheduled to start at 11 a.m., the game didn't get going until 1 p.m.
Morrison and Wright City battled to a scoreless draw through eight innings. Morrison erupted for six runs in the top of the seventh. Then in the bottom of the seventh, Wright City got a run and had runners at first and second with two out - then the rain came.
“The sun came out and it started to warm up, then the storm rolled in,” Schertz said. “It poured for a good 30 minutes. The field was damp to start with and it didn't take much to make it unplayable.”
Two games were completed in the 4A state tournament here. Mangum eliminated Okemah 14-8 and Oktaha shut out Healdton 6-0.
Schertz said the OSSAA will notify teams today of when the games will resume. They took weekend off to avoid a conflict with the state track meets.
