Not even a little easy, but NHS is able to sweep Southmoore

MOORE — Norman High, and not just the boys, can’t seem to do anything the easy way.

Both the NHS boys and girls claimed victory at Southmoore on Thursday night, yet how they did it was one (or two) for the ages.

The eighth-ranked girls needed a shootout to get past the No. 10 SaberCats and the No. 2 boys needed overtime to top a Southmoore team that played well beyond the season record it brought into the game.

NHS girls 4, Southmoore 3: Not only did the Tigers (6-2, 2-0 District 6A-1) need a shootout to stop the SaberCats (6-3, 1-1) but first they had to get goals from Tana Stevens in the 74th minute and Shiloh Farris in the 78th minute just to force the overtime.

On the flip side, Southmoore was dealt defeat despite getting goals from Hanna Robinson and Alissa Glitzke to take a 2-0 lead just 9 minutes into the game.

Kalyn Dabney was one of the Tiger heroes, coming in to play goal for an injured Hannah Mohr in the middle of the second half.

She stopped one shot in the shootout while another hit the crossbar and that was all the Tigers needed as Lauren Goodman, Farris, Stevens and Rylie Carter each converted their shootout chances.

“I think it shows our character,” NHS coach Tyler Hardage said.

NHS boys 2, Southmoore 1: Theo Ostas scored in the second overtime minute to maintain the Tigers’ unblemished season.

Milton Cruz put the Tigers (8-0, 2-0 District 6A-1) on top early in the second half but Clayton Chai answered for Southmoore (2-6, 0-3).

The Tigers have now claimed three shootouts, four one-goal decisions and one laugher this season.
