If all three teams win out, it’s not a system that benefits the Timberwolves as of yet. The T-Wolves have a total of 18 district points, while Putnam City North has 19 and Edmond North has 49.
The outlook isn’t great for Norman North, but the Timberwolves have pulled off more than one improbable comeback this season, from rallying from 14 points down to Yukon or regrouping around backup quarterback John Kolar, who has been quietly efficient since taking over for Cornwell a month ago.
Now, the Timberwolves will either need some help in the form of a Putnam City North loss or a reversal of the district points tiebreaker. And with the remaining schedule the three teams have, it’s possible the T-Wolves have one more big comeback left in them.
Norman North faces Moore and Lawton Eisenhower, two teams with a combined record of 4-12, in the final two weeks. Putnam City North has games against Lawton Eisenhower and Yukon (4-3, 2-3), while Edmond North squares off against Midwest City (6-2, 3-2) and winless US Grant.
Not that Norman North coach Wade Standley is worrying about what those other teams are doing. None of that matters unless the Timberwolves win out, beginning with Friday’s contest at Moore.
“The only thing we can control is what we do,” Standley said. “Nothing changes for us. We’ve got to come back and get better and play our best game.”
