ANDREW DIXON WRESTLES IN PAIN

Edmond North's Andrew Dixon posted three victories Saturday, two by falls, despite aggravating an old football injury in the opening round match against Sapulpa.

He was in visible pain and had to take an injury timeout in his semifinal match against Tulsa Union, but bounced back with a pin in 1:17 against Muskogee's Adonis Cole.

“He got a stinger. We put some Icy Hot on it (after the semifinal match) and he was good to go,” Edmond North coach Andy Schneider said.

“It's just nerve damage in my neck,” Dixon said. “I was on a little bit of medicine and I numb a little bit, so I didn't feel it that much. I think I will be fine. We are going to go see a therapist (this week).”

HUSKIES COACH EXPECTED AN EDMOND NORTH-BROKEN ARROW DUAL

Muskogee was soundly beaten by Broken Arrow in the first dual of the season and surprised most people by defeating the Tigers in the semifinals Saturday. Broken Arrow had been ranked No. 1 in Class 6A for most of the season.

“I have been matching ourselves up against Broken Arrow since the summer,” Schneider said. “I have (the rosters) on my phone and go through it and would look at the different matchups at each weight. I would have never in my life guessed that Muskogee would have beaten them. Hats off to Muskogee.”
