Lions snare key victory on pitch

MOORE — The Moore High girls soccer team came up with one of its biggest wins of the season last week when it edged past Norman High 1-0.

“The team looked strong and organized,” Moore coach Lori Witherspoon said. “We were tied at the end of the first half. We scored in the second minute of the second half off of a cross from senior midfielder Jordan Cleveland to outside midfielder sophomore Kay Woodring, giving us the 1-0 win.”

The victory came at the right time as it ended a three game losing streak. It also vaulted the team up the rankings to No. 15 in 6A as the postseason.

Moore’s final game of the regular season was Tuesday.

“As we approach our final regular season game, we are at the top of our game,” Witherspoon said. “We are getting into the final third of the field and taking advantage of opportunities to finish.”

Powell signs with Delta Devils

Moore High senior Brayden Powell has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at Mississippi Valley State, according to Interim Coach Marcus Thomas.

Powell, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound forward, is the first member of the 2014 signing class for the Delta Devils.

“We’re glad to have Brayden join the Valley family,” Thomas said. “He has a huge upside and can be a contributing member to the team. And not only has Brayden excelled on the basketball court, but he is also a standout student.”

In his final season with the Lions Powell averaged 16 points and 11 rebounds a game. He also helped lead his team to the state playoffs.

Jags fall to North

Fresh off one of the worst defeats of the season, a loss to Norman High that gave the Tigers the season sweep in the Crosstown Clash, Norman North was in need of a big win.
