Three straight!: With a win at home over Putnam City North or a No. 9 Moore loss at No. 1 Norman North, No. 6 Southmoore will clinch a playoff spot for the third straight season. Only Mustang, Union, Jenks and Broken Arrow have longer active streaks. It could have been longer too. The SaberC…
No. 6 Southmoore is on the verge of making the postseason for the third straight season. Not many teams have done that in the new Class 6A-I. Making the playoffs is different than in other classes. The first round is the state quarterfinals. All it takes is three wins to hoist the gold ball. In Classes A, 2A and 3A it takes five. Classes 4A and 5A require four.
