MAGRUDER PROPELS MUSTANG

Mustang's Alina Magruder waited until nearly the last minute to deliver the decisive blow.

The sophomore scored the lone goal Tuesday in the 78th minute to propel Mustang to a 1-0 victory over Norman.

It was Magruder's 10th goal this season, but perhaps her biggest as it propelled the Broncos (10-4) to Friday's semifinals against Norman North, which beat Southmoore 6-0 on Tuesday.

DIKE LEADS EDMOND NORTH

Edmond North's Courtney Dike did her job.

The senior scored one goal and assisted another to help the Huskies advance in the Class 6A girls soccer playoffs with a 2-0 victory over McGuinness on Tuesday.

Edmond North (12-2) now plays Putnam City North on Friday in the quarterfinals in a rematch of last week's district finale.

“If we can play how we know we can play with the consistency of today's game, then it should be a good game,” Edmond North coach Meagan Anderson said. “They're not in the second round of the playoffs because they're not a good team.

“We're not going to change anything we do. We're going to pressure and get the ball forward. Nothing different.”

DEER CREEK ROUTS LAWTON MAC

Mikayla Lowery scored three goals and Deer Creek rolled to the Class 5A quarterfinals with a 10-0 victory against Lawton MacArthur.

Deer Creek (11-3) plays Chickasha, which beat Heritage Hall 2-1 on Tuesday, in Friday's quarterfinals.

All three of Lowery's goals came in the first half as the Antlers jumped to a 6-0 lead.

But she wasn't alone in the scoring output. Sophia Brazil added two goals and an assist, while Taylor Gross scored once and had two assists.

“It's really not just them,” Deer Creek coach Misty Thompson said. “Our system, the way it allows and the way we play it, they just play off each other.”

Kylee Johnson also scored twice in the second half.

NOBLE GIRLS REMAIN PERFECT

Noble remained unbeaten on the season by knocking off Northwest Classen, 6-0, in the first round of the playoffs.

Jesse Goodner and Gracie Jonas each scored two goals for the Lady Bears, who improved to 14-0 on the season.

Noble will now host Carl Albert in the quarterfinals on Friday night. Carl Albert defeated Durant 1-0 on Tuesday night.
