Tigers begin gauntlet



Things don’t get any easier for NHS, with top-ranked Edmond Memorial coming to town on Friday.

Norman North girls 64, Moore 47: Norman North cruised to a big win Tuesday night behind a balanced effort and a big advantage on the boards. The T-Wolves out-rebounded Moore 33-19 in a blowout victory over Moore that wasn’t as close as the final score.

Bri Kuestersteffen led a group effort from the T-Wolves with 17 points and five assists, and it was her passing that opened the game up early. North fed Julian Mougell inside where she was able to finish enough plays to force Moore to collapse. That opened up the outside for the shooters, and along with North’s full-court press allowed the T-Wolves to build up a sizable lead.

“”We played a great first half, and it was a total team effort,” coach Jeff Blough said. “We shared the ball really well tonight.”

Blough was especially impressed with the way sophomore guard Paige Canty, who finished with 10 points and a pair of assists.

“She’s come leaps and bounds just from last weekend,” he said. “She was aggressive, she attacked the rim and competed the entire game.”

Caitlyn Hall led Moore with 16 points, while Amanda Patterson added 14 points and five assists.

Plainview girls 57, Community Christian 36: CCS held Plainview to just 17 second-half points but the damage had already been done at Royal Fieldhouse. Behind 16 first-half points from freshman guard Megan Shelton, Plainview (4-2) led 40-24 at the half. The rest of the way the Royals were never any closer than 16 points

Shelton finished with 21 points and seven rebounds and freshman post Rebecca Wright added 13. The Royals (2-4) were led by Abby White’s 14 points and six rebounds. Katee Boyles added 13 points.

Westmoore boys 66, Southmoore 51: Tripp Fuller scored 21 points to lead the Jaguars (3-2) in a comeback victory over the SaberCats at WMH.
