State-final worthy matchup: PC North vs. Norman North

Two very convincing victories by Putnam City North and Norman North Tuesday set up a second-round boys soccer match worthy of a state final.

PC North, ranked No. 1 in Class 6A all season, walloped an Edmond Memorial squad  —  which was ranked second for much of the season  —  3-0 in an opening-round match.

Meanwhile, Norman North blasted Yukon 8-1, setting up a quarterfinal meeting between the T-Wolves and Panthers Friday night at Norman North.

“That’s a dream game isn’t it?” said PC North coach Tom Pecore. “It will be a great game. The playoffs are extremely competitive this year. This was the best first round (of games) I’ve seen.”

Jaccob Rangel scored a pair of goals and center back Kevin Cabello added his team-best 12th score of the season. The win moved the Panthers to 13-1 on the season.

“It was a great game,” said Pecore. “The wind kept it closer than it should have been. But Kevin Cabello once again proved he is the best big man in the state and the boys played terrific. The wind hurt both teams, but as far as the run of the game, it was us all the way.”
