SLIDESHOW: Huskies make state finals

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Edmond North Huskies put five runs across in the first inning and didn’t look back on their way to a berth in the state title game with a 9-4 win over Yukon in the semifinals on Friday.

After North starter Jordan Dixon struck out the side in the top of the first inning, the Huskies came out swinging. Sheridan Bond reached on an error, stole second and went to third on Mattie Nordyke’s double. Bridget White then worked the count full before hitting a three-run home run to center field to stake North to a 3-0 lead with only one out.

After Hannah Danielson singled to center and Paige Bond walked, Kourtney Tanner doubled to left, scoring both to put North up 5-0.

That score stayed until the bottom of the third, when Paige Bond singled, Tanner reached on an error that allowed Bond to score, and Sheridan Bond doubled, scoring Tanner to put the Huskies up 7-0.

Yukon got on the board in the fourth inning when Dixon walked the first two batters, who scored on a single to center and a sacrifice to bring the score to 7-2.

A Millers homer led off the sixth inning to move Yukon within 7-3, but North answered in their half of the inning when Abby Taliaferro’s double to left field scored Sheridan Bond and Nordyke to put North up 9-3.

Yukon managed another run with one out in the top of the seventh but Nordyke fielded a sharply hit ground ball at shortstop for the second out, then snagged a line drive to end the game.

Sheridan Bond was 3-for-4 with 2 runs and 1 RBI; Nordyke was 2-for-4 with 2 runs; Bridget White was 1-for-3 with 3 RBIs and 1 run; Abby Taliaferro was 1-for-3 with 2 RBIs; Kourtney Tanner was 1-for-3 with 2 RBIs and 1 run.

Dixon struck out 14 in the win. She allowed 4 runs, all earned, 6 hits and 2 walks.

North will face the Moore Lions, who defeated Broken Arrow 3-0 to advance on Friday. The teams have not met this season, and both are 34-2. North’s losses came to Owasso and Sand Springs; Moore lost to Owasso and Muskogee. Rain postponed Saturday's scheduled championship game until 7 p.m. Monday at Hall of Fame Stadium.
