It’s hard to quantify, but maybe Cichero’s the best player North’s ever had and maybe it’s as simple as the best player finding another gear because that’s what best players do.
There’s probably something to it, but give the Tigers a ton of credit. It was their best team in a long time, better than the one that played for a state title three years ago, and as great as North was Friday, it was still a one-goal game until 12 seconds remained.
The original side of town has nothing to be ashamed of and plenty to celebrate. It put a great team on the pitch. North put an equally great team on the pitch. Then they kicked it off and NHS pulled more out of North than it had offered all season.
Now the T-Wolves can go win it all.
Really, it’s that simple.
