With spring wrapping up, it’s easy to forget about those last few accomplishments at the end of the school year. They’re often overshadowed by summer excitement and the flurry of vacation prep. However, the Edmond North soccer team deserves a little limelight thrown its way for a truly impressive accomplishment.
After nearly a 72-hour delay, the 6A Boys Soccer State Championship game ended with a big victory for Edmond North. The Huskies defeated Deer Creek 3-2 in the semifinals and went on to play Tulsa Union in the championship game. The game was tight, with both teams scoring a goal each. Oklahoma weather caused several delays—lightning struck within a 10-mile radius of the field, forcing delay of game calls. After officials decided to postpone the game for the weekend, ENHS made quick work of the Monday night game. North’s Jonathan Cline scored the winning goal after a mere eight minutes of play, clinching the 6A title. 2-1 was the final score, and students and parents alike left Taft Stadium with an impressive victory and a whole bunch of Husky pride.
