After an exulting win over Santa Fe on Thursday night, the Edmond Memorial squad showed they had plenty left in the tank for Edmond North. The 'Dogs got after North early and often, as they grabbed the city title with a 9-1 win in five innings.

"Any time a team gets a big emotional win, that's something you're leery of as a coach, you don�?t want them to living in that 'W' from a day ago, and these kids did a good job of putting that behind them," Memorial coach Kyle Roberts said.

Senior B.J. Misialek put on a show for the home crowd, hitting 3-for-3 with two doubles and four RBI to lead the 'Dogs to their fourth consecutive victory.

"It's just great to string four or five together, because we've been so up and down," Misialek said. "We've just been relaxing more lately, we had a boiling point at Broken Arrow, and I think it helped us come back down to Earth and star playing ball."

Misialek put Memorial on the board first with a double, scoring Joe Lassiter in the bottom of the first inning. Alex Hill tacked on another run when he scored from third on a wild pitch, and Jackson White made it a 3-0 lead with a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Misialek.

The 'Dogs got after it again in the bottom of the second inning with a two-out rally. Drew Dahlberg picked up a two-out single and later scored on an RBI-single by Lassister to make it a 4-0 contest. Hill followed suite with a base hit to left, and Misialek drove both runners home with a double down the third baseball to give Memorial a 7-0 lead.

Keegan Grooms tacked on another run with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the third inning, to put the 'Dogs up by eight.

The Huskies put their first run on the board in the top of the fourth inning. Daniel Hansen drew a walk to load the bases, and Brent Bloxom scored on a fielder's choice by Brad Beeston to make it a 7-1 game.

The 'Dogs got the run back in the bottom of the inning, when Misialek drove in his fourth run of the game with a single to left field to score Dahlberg.

Jack Dennis then put the game away in the bottom of the fifth inning when he hit two-out single to right field, scoring Grooms to give Memorial the 9-1 run-rule win.

Kyle Forsyth (5-2) allowed one run on four hits and struck out seven for the win. Evan Small took the loss for the Huskies, after allowing six runs on eight hits in two plus innings of work.

Hill was 2-for-3 with two runs scored for the 'Dogs. Beeston led the way for the Huskies, hitting 2-for-3 with a double and one RBI.

Memorial followed up Friday night's win with an 8-3 loss to Putnam City North on Saturday. The 'Dogs will be back in action Monday night as they host Del City, while the North boys will head to Mustang.
