Edmond North and Norman North will meet for the 6A boys state soccer championship.

Norman North defeated Owasso, 2-1, Tuesday night in Owasso on two goals by Mauro Cichero.

Edmond North held off Jenks, 2-1, in the other semifinal on the Huskies' home turf.

“They are really talented,” Edmond North coach Christopher Waugh said of Norman North, the defending state champion. “It should be a great game.”

The 6A state championship game will be Saturday, but a site and time has yet to be determined.

Edmond North advanced to the state championship game for the first time since 2004, when the Huskies captured the state crown.

“This team, they have come together,” Waugh said. “They know how to play. These guys are relentless. They keep on coming and coming and coming. They know how to get the ball down the field, and they know how to win.”

Against Jenks, Ross Stewart's header off an Avery Sanderson corner kick less than two minutes in the second half broke a scoreless tie.
