NORMAN — Mustang got some unexpected support Friday night in the Broncos' Class 6A girls' quarterfinal soccer game.

With students from Norman High School cheering them on, Mustang upset Norman North 1-0 in a shootout on the Timberwolves home field.

“They really got us going and pressuring,” Mustang's Alina Magruder said of the Norman fans. “That was so awesome.”

After the victory, Mustang's team celebrated with the Norman fans, even taking a team photo with many of them.

Norman had a large contingent of fans watching the end of the Mustang-Norman North girls' game because they were waiting for the start of the boys' playoff game between the Tigers and the Timberwolves.

The victory sends Mustang into the state semifinals at home Tuesday night against defending state champion Tulsa Kelley.

The game was scoreless through regulation and the two overtime periods.

Lexi Jones, Magruder and Marilyn Kalin each scored in the shootout while Norman North got goals from Sheridan Spellman and Lauren Morf.

Norman North (11-3-1) had to score on its fifth and final kick to extend the shootout, but Mustang goalkeeper Brandi Hutchison blocked Lexi Carroll's shot to end the game.
