Local briefs

OWASSSO — Tahlequah’s baseball team dropped a 7-0 decision to top-ranked Owasso on Saturday in the finals of the Owasso tournament.

With the loss, the Tigers fall to 5-5.

Tahlequah, ranked 19th in Class 5A, advanced to the tournament finals after demolishing Muskogee, 10-1, on Friday.

Austin Riley limited Muskogee to two hits during his time on the mound. Riley, in addition to having five strikeouts on the mound, added four hits on offense, including a three-run double in the sixth inning.

Tahlequah took an early lead on Colby Brittain’s three-run home run, and the Tigers would never look back from that point on.
