NORMAN — The talented Norman North girls soccer team turned in one of its most dominant performances on Friday with a state championship on the line.

The Timberwolves claimed the Class 6A state title, the school’s first ever, with a commanding 3-0 victory over Edmond Memorial at OU.

Carroll opened the scoring in first half off an assist from Francesca Ryan. Carroll made her presence known again in the second half when her corner kick found Hannah Livingston with just over 30 minutes remaining to extend the Timberwolves’ lead to 2-0.
