Jaguars one win away from state; Southmoore season ends

NORMAN — Westmoore came up with two convincing wins Friday in the regional tournament at  WMH. After beating Lawton High 8-2, they turned around and smashed Edmond Santa Fe 9-1.

The Jaguars and ESF will face-off again at 1 p.m. today. The winner earns a spot in next week's 6A state championship tournament. The loser's season will come to an end.

Norman North 8, Southmoore 1

The Timberwolves punched their ticket to the season’s final weekend with an 8-1 victory over Southmoore in a game that started out full of tension and finished just the opposite, as a number of timely T-Wolves hits combined with six SaberCat errors turned what was a 1-1 game in the fourth inning into a come-from-behind blowout victory for North.

Southmoore struck first, loading the bases with one out against starter DJ Gasso. But the senior worked out of the jam with minimal damage, with a baserunning error and a pop-up providing the final two outs. That gave North a chance in the second to regain the momentum, and the T-Wolves seized it, tying the game on a Tyler Bottoms sacrifice fly, after the first of Southmoore’s six errors put runners in scoring position.

But the SaberCats threatened to retake the lead in the bottom of half of the inning, as well as in each of the next three. But Gasso and the North defense worked out of every tough spot, holding Southmoore scoreless and forcing the SaberCats to strand five runners through three innings.

That opened the door for North to take control of the game, and the T-Wolves did so. They added a run in the fourth inning to take the lead when Kallen Snodgrass narrowly beat a throw to home plate, and the floodgates opened in the fifth. Jones led off the inning with a triple, Nick Basquine scored him by bunting for a hit, and Herron capped off a spectacular regional tournament in which he went 7 for 11 by providing the hit that brought in Basquine.

The Cats end the year at 16-15.
