MOORE —

But the SaberCats focus isn’t down the road success right now. They are looking at what it’s going to take to advance in a field of teams that includes No. 1 Edmond Santa Fe (29-1), No. 10 Stillwater (13-15), No. 5 Jenks (18-8), No. 3 Bishop Kelly (22-6) and No. 6 Edmond Memorial (14-14).

Southmoore’s first road block comes in the form of No. 2 Edmond North (22-3). They face off at 4:30 p.m. in the final game of the opening round.

“I need to see them believe that they deserve to be there and our defense has to be on point,” Brannon said. “The best part of the regional tournament was that they mentioned several times that it was surreal and as if they hadn’t won the regional tournament because it just felt like a good match win - like any other regular match.  It’s always tough being the underdog and facing a top notch program, but I believe they are up for any challenge that they face.”

The Cats have been led throughout the season by senior Amy Serowski. She will be counted on again to keep the team steady and produce on both offense and defense.

 “We need Amy to stay within herself and produce as she has all four years at Southmoore,” Brannon said. “To not try too hard to take on the team on the other side of the net on all by herself, but to focus on executing her plays and encourage the rest of her teammates to do the same.”

Most of the programs competing at state this week have had past success in one way or the other. Bishop Kelly has won 16 team titles since 1988. Memorial has four, Santa Fe and Jenks each have three on its resume.

With the SaberCats only in their sixth season of even competing, Brannon believes they are on the right track.
