No,. 8 SaBerCats take on No. 7 Wolves

MOORE — In its first three games of the season, Southmoore has shown it can win in a variety of ways. When its the pounding run game of Karltrell Henderson, the aerial assault of Tre Edwards to Jalen Adams or an attacking defense led by Terrance Bonner and Nick Ward, it has found a way to make plays when needed.

The eighth-ranked SaberCats (3-0) will need all phases to be at their best Thursday when they travel to North to take on No. 7 Edmond Santa Fe (2-1) at the University of Central Oklahoma in district 6A-4 action.

In its fast-break spread offense, the Cats are racking 513 yard per game. But they have proven to be one of the most balanced teams in the state. Only 30 yards separate their rushing and passing yardage.

Edwards has thrown for 695 yards, eight touchdowns and is completing 65 percent of his passes. But the most impressive stat is the two interceptions.

Santa Fe also has a standout quarterback in Justice Hansen. He threw for 268 yards in the loss to North.

The Wolves were considered the top team on the west coming into the season. But after a convincing loss to Norman North, they are not the sure fire district winner many assumed they would be.

District 6A-4 has four teams ranked in the top 10 in the state. Lawton High and Mustang join the SaberCats and Wolves. And Norman High, is one win away from moving up.

That means every game is important and a win over Santa Fe would give Southmoore a solid start to the district season.



The Lions (0-3) are still searching for their first win of the season when it hosts U.S. Grant (1-2) Thursday at Moore Stadium. The Generals are one game ahead of MHS in District 6A-3, where only three teams have a winning record.
