EDMOND — First-year Edmond North coach Karlie Free told her team it has a three-game season.
Tuesday against Mustang, Friday at Choctaw, and then its district opener at Tulsa Washington next Thursday.
So far, so good, as the Huskies beat the No. 11 Broncos 35-32 at home Tuesday to improve to 9-12 on the season.
The Huskies held off a fourth-quarter rally to win their fourth game in their last five.
“This was huge for our confidence,” Free said. “I told them, we've got to take care of business against Mustang and Choctaw to show that we're prepared (for districts).”
Junior Kaitlyn Peterson led Edmond North with 10 points.
Edmond North, which has been to the last three state tournaments but brought back virtually no experience, lost a heartbreaker at Putnam City North last Friday.
“This boosted us as a team,” Peterson said. “It was tough coming back from PC North. This really helped us.”
PC WEST SNAPS FIVE-GAME SKID
Putnam City West snapped a five-game losing streak with Tuesday's 43-40 win at Putnam City.
The Patriots (6-16), under first-year coach Daniel Cunningham, are now 2-0 against their district rival.
Senior Irish Smith led PC West with 16 points.
HIGHT SCORES 18; IRISH TOPS ARDMORE
Senior Elyse Hight scored 18 points and Class 5A No. 6 Bishop McGuinness won its seventh straight game and 10th in its last 11 with a 58-45 win at Ardmore.
The Irish (18-5) jumped out to a 14-7 lead after the first quarter and led 33-13 at halftime.
