Postseason tips-off Thursday



Westmoore dropped an overtime thriller to Edmond Memorial Friday. After holding a lead much of the season half, the Jags watched the Bulldogs outscore them 18-15 in the fourth and 13-6 in OT to come away with a 70-63 win.

“We really competed hard on Friday,” coach Scott Hodges said. “I was really proud of our guys for how they prepared, focused, and played. We do a few things better late in the game and it’s a different outcome.”

Tripp Fuller paced WM with 15. Westmoore will travel to Mustang, where they’ll meet Norman North at 6:30 p.m. Friday, while Mustang will play host to Putnam City.

“They are probably the best offensive team we’ve played all year,” Hodges said of North. “They can really score points in bunches. We will have to do a good job defensively and be very sound on the offensive end and take good shots. One thing we always talk about is take one game at a time and have confidence in your abilities. Norman North is a really good team, but we have confidence that we can go over there and advance to Area.”

The Westmoore girls earned another big win Friday by taking down No. 14 Edmond Memorial 47-42. Bri Haun, Sydney Chastain and Ashley Gomez each posted 13 points in the win as they swept the Bulldogs on the season.

“Overall, we played well,” Westmoore coach Andrea Guziec said. “We started five of our six seniors and they got us off to a good start behind the great shooting of Bri Haun.”

The Jags will meet Yukon in the Choctaw regional Thursday.

“We played Yukon in the finals of the Newcastle tournament and lost by five,” Guziec said. “It was by far not our best game, and we were still in it till the end. We played without Callie Palmer who will help us with Yukon’s post players. I feel very good about our chances against Yukon on Thursday.”
