1st round: Norman North over Edmond Memorial; Muskogee over Edmond North; Tulsa Union over Tulsa Washington; Putnam City North over Putnam City; Midwest City over Mustang; Owasso over Broken Arrow; Jenks over Stillwater; Lawton over Westmoore.
Quarterfinals: Muskogee over Norman North; Tulsa Union over Putnam City North; Midwest City over Owasso; Jenks over Lawton.
Comments: Muskogee has already beaten Norman North once this year in Norman, and I think it does it again. While I disagree with coach Matt Hennessy’s blanket statement that “There’s no one tougher than a Rougher,” I think Roughers are tougher than Timberwolves, at least in this context.
Semifinals: Tulsa Union over Muskogee; Jenks over Midwest City
Finals: Jenks 35, Tulsa Union 32
Comments: It’s well documented that the winner of the regular season game in this one loses the playoff match-up. I don’t think that changes this year, and Jenks wins, adding another chapter to this historic rivalry.

Second round: Norman North over Muskogee, Union over Putnam City, Midwest City over Owasso, Jenks over Westmoore.
Semifinals: Union over Norman North, Jenks over Midwest City.
Finals: Union 34, Jenks 29.
Comments: I admit 6A is not my specialty. I might be trying too hard to say the west side deserves some love with Norman North and Midwest City in the semis, but I think that would be what’s best for this class as a whole. I could be way off, but I think the Timberwolves’ close loss to Muskogee taught them more than most of their wins. It’s all moot because in the end, it’s round 2 of Union-Jenks. Jeremy Smith is a stud, and he’ll show it again here.
