Close losses for T-Wolves and Tigers

NORMAN — Norman North’s chances at hosting a regional took a hit on Monday when the T-Wolves lost 2-1 to Edmond Memorial.

North took a 1-0 lead in the first inning but was shut out the rest of the game despite stringing out five hits. Edmond Memorial got its two runs in the third inning and held on the rest of the way to take the first of the two-game series.

While North is still ahead in the district race, the loss magnifies the second game of the series today at 7 p.m. at Edmond Memorial

“We had a chance early today to get to their pitcher early and we didn’t do it,” coach Brian Aylor said. “It’s a district loss and now it brings a lot of teams into the equation. We’ve got to go out there tomorrow and get a split to keep our hopes alive of hosting regionals.”

Westmoore 9, Norman High 8: Norman High lost another one-run game on Monday, losing a 5-4 lead to Westmoore to fall 9-8.

The Tigers went up 5-4 in the fourth inning but watched the Jags storm back to pull ahead 9-5. NHS was able to come up with three runs in the bottom of the seventh, but the rally fell short.

“I’m proud of the way we fought back, but it’s still a loss,” coach Pete Sangirardi said.

Next up for NHS is a trip today to Westmoore to complete the series at 6 p.m.
