DEL CITY — The Terry Wilson Show didn't come with a happy ending for Del City.

The Eagles' sophomore quarterback played brilliantly in his first game as the full-time starter, but Norman North spoiled the night with the help of a few of its own stars, and a late interception that sealed a 41-38 victory Friday night at Del City's Robert Kalsu Stadium.

Norman North quarterback David Cornwell threw for 278 yards and three touchdowns behind better protection from a young offensive line, and sophomore defensive back Jake Brewer intercepted a Del City pass in the end zone on what turned out to be the game-clinching play.

“We just had a lot of different guys step up tonight and do what we needed to do,” coach Wade Standley said of his Timberwolves defense.

Wilson gave Standley's defense fits much of the night, rushing for 266 yards with an 81-yard touchdown, and throwing for 186 yards and another score. But when they had to have it, the Timberwolves came up with the plays they had to have.

The same could be said for the offense, which had two long touchdown passes from Cornwell in the second half. Sophomore running back Quan Hogan took a screen pass and went 43 yards for a score, and Cornwell hit Nick Basquine for a 37-yard strike to put the Timberwolves ahead for good with just under six minutes to play.

It was Basquine's second long hookup with Cornwell on the night.
