CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO -- Anytime your team comes up short, it's definitely a sinking feeling, especially when a title game goes into double overtime, but even with the loss, some fans aren't disappointed in their team.

Dozens of Heartland folks gathered inside the Kriegers Hometown Sports Grill to watch the Redhawks take on the Eastern Kentucky Colonels on Saturday.

Sports fans say it's nice to see not only the men, but also the women getting national attention.

Even though the Redhawks won't bring the title home to Southeast Missouri, fans say, just making it to the Ohio Valley Conference Championship Game is something to be proud of.

Some of the sports fans Heartland News spoke with say, raising daughters makes them wish more attention would be given to women sports. They say, women's basketball games can offer just as much excitement as watching the men play.
