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…

Yet again, we wish for defense from Norman North, offense from Norman High, a playoff position after a strong non-district start from Community Christian (not to mention Noble … Hello, the Bears are 3-0) and do we dare declare Southmoore best in the west?
