MADILL, Oklahoma (KTEN)- The Tushka Lady Tigers came up just short to Empire 43-34 in the Class A Area III Championship Game on Friday.

Rebekah Ridgway led the Lady Tigers with 11 points, but they just didn't have enough offense late on to close the gap on Empire.

 Their dreams of their first state berth in seven years aren't done yet though. They will face Caddo tomorrow at 6 in the consolation championship game in Madill. The winner of that one will also punch a ticket to the state tournament.
