T-Wolves keep good start going

NORMAN — Norman North cruised to a big win over Putnam City West on Tuesday night to remain undefeated in the first week of the season. The Timberwolves defeated PC West 11-1 in five innings, taking advantage of six Patriot errors to roll to the victory.

Austin Cranford controlled the game from the beginning in his first start of the season, throwing four innings of no-hit baseball before coming out in the fifth. North also had 10 hits in the game, including a homer from Colton Hansmeyer.

“Austin had a really good game tonight,” coach Brian Aylor said. “We’re off to a 2-0 in district play, and that’s a good way to start.”

North has a busy schedule, with a home game Thursday against Moore before traveling to Stillwater on Friday. The Timberwolves then play a pair of games next week against NHS before traveling to Florida for a tournament.

Norman High 7, Lawton 2: Norman High picked up its first win of the year on Tuesday, defeating Lawton 7-2 after overcoming an early deficit.

Lawton got on the board in the first inning, but NHS responded with a four-run second to take control of the game. Paul Reed held Lawton to just four hits to earn the win.

“Paul pitched outstanding tonight,” said Doug Gillis, the former NHS coach is who handling the coaches duties while coach Pete Sangirardi has to be away from the team for medical reasons. “Both of the runs he gave up were unearned, and he got stronger as the game went on. Really, it was just a solid game by everyone.”

The Tigers’ Thursday contest against Noble is canceled due to the Bears’ basketball team making the state tournament, so NHS will next take the field at 6:30 p.m. Monday against Norman North.
