MOORE — Moore High won its third consecutive game Friday when it downed Westmoore 48-38 at Moore. The three game winning streak is the longest of the season for the suddenly surging Lions.

After starting the season at 1-10, the Lions are 5-2 over their last seven games. The coaching staff said it's just all about the team getting comfortable with each other.

“Early in the year we were not as settled as we are now,” MHS coach Aaron Howell said. “I wasn't as settled. But these boys are committed.”

Westmoore is also riding a streak of its own, except that it's going in the opposite direction. The loss dropped the Jaguars to 2-15 on the season.

“We have lost 10 in a row,” Westmoore coach Robert Foreman said. “And we played like we have lost 10 in a row.”

MOORE — Norman High just wants to be home.

The Tigers have played 16 games this season and 11 have been on the road. So NHS is definitely road-tested.

“That doesn’t mean that you win games,” NHS coach Wes Clark said.

And the Tigers dropped another one Friday at Southmoore. After a big win Tuesday at Edmond Memorial, NHS couldn’t follow it up and lost to the SaberCats 77-72.

The Tigers (6-10) got 22 points and 11 rebounds from Brock Vorwald and 19 points from Jarrod Boersma, but it wasn’t enough to hold off Southmoore’s hot outside shooting.

“They hit 11 3-pointers and that was the story,” Clark said. “They had a kid that hit six 3-pointers in the third quarter.”

NHS was down 34-31 at the half, but tied the game 48-48 after three periods. The Tigers were down six with four minutes remaining in the game, but could not catch up.

MOORE — The Norman High girls bounced back from a tough loss to Edmond Memorial with a runaway victory over Southmoore Friday.

Ashley Bruner led the Tigers with 15 points and 12 rebounds and the NHS starters got to sit in the forth quarter.

“She’s just such a competitive player,” NHS coach Matilda Mossman said. “She just goes out and dominates games. It doesn’t matter if they’re the same size as her or if they’re bigger than her.”

The two squads were playing it close through one quarter, when NHS led 17-13. But then the Tigers outscored Southmoore 15-0 through the next two quarters, running away with things.

The last time the two teams met, the Tigers won 53-19 at the NHS Gym.

The Tigers improved to 12-4 on the season and are back in action in a hurry when they host Lawton today at 3:45 p.m.

Moore (3-15) outscored the Jaguars 20-4 in the first quarter then held them scoreless in the second period. Westmoore (5-13) was never able to recover as they played without their leading scorer, Emilee Walker..

Tara Martini led all scorers with 16 points. Anisha Mackey and Kaylee Blanchard added 8 each.
