The Wolves pushed the lead to 24-13 when Hansen capped a 53-yard TD drive with his second 4-yard TD run midway through the third quarter. Hansen finished the night 19-of-36 passing for 216 yards and two scores and ran for 72 yards and two TDs.
“Justice didn't have one of his best games but that has something to do with Edmond North's defense,” Manning said. “(In the first overtime) it was a quarterback making a great play and the receiver executing the play to make a great catch to send it to another overtime.”
The momentum switched back to North when Huskies linebacker Scott Courtney blindsided Hansen in the end zone, forcing a fumble that Courtney recovered for a touchdown. A two-point conversion cut the lead to 24-21 late in the third quarter.
Santa Fe chewed up much of the fourth quarter with a 13-play drive, but the Huskies took over on downs at their own 41 with 2:31 remaining. North's offense produced two first downs to set up Trevor Moore, who booted his third field goal, a 36-yarder, with :03 left to force overtime.
“I'm extremely proud of our kids,” Burger said. “I told them as soon as they leave the field this game was over with, that they're capable of running the table and being district champions.”
