“Coach (Bob) Wilson, he knows how to attack people. They came out and hit us in the mouth. They shocked us. They had great play calls at perfect times. They got some pretty talented players over there.”

The Huskies' defense lived up to its reputation in the second half and pitched a shutout. Meanwhile, the Edmond North offense started pounding the Panthers on the ground. A game that was tied at halftime became a rout in the second half.

The Huskies' Marque Depp rushed for 141 yards on 17 carries and scored two touchdowns. Michael Farmer added 127 yards on 11 carries and also scored twice.

Ezel McIntee also scored on a 54-yard run as the Huskies finished with 354 yards rushing as a team.

“Our running backs put the team on their backs,” Edmond North quarterback Luke Hoskins said. “Our line put the team on their backs.”

The Huskies (4-0, 1-0) might have still been celebrating their big win over rival Edmond Santa Fe last week to start the homecoming game, Hoskins said.

“They came out and surprised us all, surprised our defense,” Hoskins said of the Panthers. “It was the most points scored on us in awhile. We definitely had to adjust at halftime and we did that.”
