Class 6A boys: Edmond Santa Fe holds on to beat Norman North

Edmond Santa Fe came out like a team with something to prove Thursday afternoon in the opening round of the Class 6A boys state tournament at Skiatook’s Gary Johnson Activities Center.

The Wolves didn’t dominate Norman North in a 52-48 win, but there was never much doubt for Santa Fe.

“We executed what we wanted to do,” Santa Fe’s Michael Onuocha said. “We got a little worried there toward the end, and our coach got a little mad, but we never panicked.”

No. 1 Santa Fe (23-4) will play the winner of this afternoon’s game between Putnam City and Jenks at 9 a.m. Friday at the Mabee Center in Tulsa.

Norman North’s season ends 18-9.

Santa Fe split with Putnam City in two meetings and beat Jenks once.

“In this tournament, it doesn’t matter who you play, you’ve got to come out with that intensity,” Onuocha said. “I don’t think that’ll be an issue for us.”

The Wolves entered the playoffs as the favorites in 6A, but a loss to Midwest City in the area finals put that status into question.
