Jacob Tunney then scored the Huskies' second goal on assist from Trevor Moore for a 2-0 lead. Jenks' Alex Harris cut the lead in half with 5:01 remaining, setting up a frantic last five minutes.

The Huskies (14-2) held off a furious assault on by Jenks on Edmond's North goal in the final five minutes to preserve the victory. Jenks had defeated the Huskies in the opening game of the season.

Edmond North lost a heartbreaker in the semifinals last year to Tulsa Union, a defeat that has motivated the Huskies this season.

“We got to the semifinals last year and lost in double overtime in the last minute,” Huskies senior Jason Rinehart said. “We are not letting that happen this time. This time we are going to finish.”
