For his part, Kolar appreciated his favorite target.
“He’s got some unbelievable hands,” he said of Basquine. “You just put the ball on him and he’ll catch it no matter what, in any kind of situation.”
It was back and forth until North put it away at the end.
The T-Wolves (5-2, 4-0 District 6A-3) scored first when Prince galloped 43 yards on a direct snap for the first of his three scores.
Edmond North hung close through three quarters behind the connection of starting quarterback McClernon, who tossed for 272 yards on 15 of 27 accuracy, and receiver Luke Rossi, who caught 10 of the offerings for 176 yards.
A 14-14 game at the half, Briley’s pick to begin the third quarter set up Prince’s second score, from a yard away. And after the Huskies (5-3, 3-1) answered with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Rossi, and North answered back with Prince going in from 2, Magee’s interception of McClernon led to Kolar’s first score, putting North up for good.
Edmond North added two late touchdowns, but never had the ball with a chance to tie the game.
Once again, the T-Wolves gave up yards and points, yet made the plays to win, and that was good enough for coach Wade Standley.
“We’re continuing to get better each week,” he said.
The T-Wolves continue to win, too.
