Moore takes on Edmond North at 4 p.m. Saturday in the 6A final.

PIEDMONT CRUSHES CACHE

Piedmont advanced to the Class 4A final with a 12-0 route of Cache in six innings. Piedmont plays Oologah in the final at 11 a.m.

Emma Nelson, Michelle Brandon, Jordan Chism, Maddie Morris, Kylie Palmer and Kassidy Scott all had two runs each for Piedmont.

NORTH'S OFFENSE ROLLS IN VICTORY

Edmond North's hitters were at their best in their semifinal game against Yukon, as the Huskies scored five runs in the first inning and nine overall in a 9-4 win.

“We like our chances, I promise you,” North coach Rick Nordyke said. “With our two pitchers that we have, if we get nine runs, we like our chances.”

Juniors Sheridan Bond, Paige Bond and Madison Nordyke each contributed two runs in the victory.

DEER CREEK RALLY FALLS SHORT

After digging a six-run hole heading into the bottom of the 7th inning, the light flickered on for the Deer Creek offense.

The Antlers rallied to score four runs in the final inning to pull within two with a runner on base. But he late surge wasn't enough as they fell to Chickasha 7-5 in the 5A semifinals.

“I just feel like all year long we've been able to come from behind and they have a 'never say die' attitude,” Deer Creek head coach Erin Regier said. “They proved it there at the very end. We've always told them never to give up on themselves and they don't.”

GROVE SURVIVES

Grove advanced to the Class 5A final with a 7-4 win over Carl Albert. Grove takes on Chickasha in the final at 1:30 p.m.
