North is lone wolf in the west



No team besides Jenks or Union has won the Class 6A title since 1996, a year before North even existed. With the two playing in the other semifinal game, it’s a guarantee someone will have a shot to end that streak this season.

Why not the Timberwolves?

Broken Arrow was as good of a team as anyone in the state, including the state’s most well-known champions. But North was up to the challenge against the Tigers on Friday, making the big plays early and late to salt away the victory, and the T-Wolves proved they can beat anyone in the state.

A team that was a surprise playoff entrant just a year ago is now knocking on the doorstep.

“We don’t want it to end,” said senior linebacker Jordan Evans, whose 90-yard punt return first put North on the board Friday. “We’re on a mission.”

That mission isn’t yet accomplished. But the Timberwolves may just be on their way.
