EDMOND — For the first time in four years, Edmond North will not be in the state championship game.
Jenks defeated the Huskies, 2-0, Tuesday night in the Class 6A girls soccer semifinals, ending Edmond North's season and the brilliant high school career of star player Courtney Dike.
It is the first time in Dike's four years at Edmond North that the Huskies did not advance to the state championship game.
Edmond North won state titles in 2010 and 2011. The Huskies lost to Tulsa Kelley in the finals last year.
Jenks will meet defending state champ Tulsa Kelley for the title on Saturday. Tulsa Kelley defeated Mustang, 4-0, in the other semifinal at Mustang. The Broncos finished the season 11-5.
“We may have had one shot on goal the first half, and they had 10,” Mustang coach Mike Mason said. “They are fine team with a really good bunch of athletes.”
At Edmond North, Jenks controlled the play during the game and was able to bottle up Dike and the Huskies' offense. Jenks outshot Edmond North 15-3 in the game.
“She is a great player,” Edmond North coach Meagan Anderson said of Dike, who will play for Oklahoma State University next season.
“Courtney has had an amazing and outstanding career. She is going to continue to pursue that at the next level.”
