Edmond North (10-1) seized command in the third quarter when its offensive line and running game took control.

Farmer scored on a 34-yard run on the Huskies' first possession of the second half and quarterback Luke Hoskins connected with wide receiver Luke Rossi for a 38-yard scoring strike on their second series.

Farmer, who rushed for 126 yards on 15 carries, added another touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard run. Depp finished with 14 carries for 104 yards.

“We could tell things were going to turn in our favor,” Dombek said. “Our offensive line was feeling confident. I think they played great.

“They (Edmond Memorial) were throwing some different looks at us, multiple fronts, and stuff that we have never seen before. Our kids did a great job communicating with coaches and fixing some things. They had a great plan for us but our kids did a great job adjusting to it.”

Edmond Memorial coach Justin Merideth had high praise for the Huskies, who he thinks can make a deep playoff run.

“I think they are really good,” Merideth said. “They are definitely as good as any team we've played all year. They've got a good offensive line and a good running game and they play really strong defense.

“And I am not discounting their quarterback either. He makes plays when he has to. They've got all the ingredients.”
