EDMOND – Edmond North has held the advantage in the annual “Schneider Bowl” the past four seasons.
The Huskies continued that trend Tuesday night with the most lopsided win in the series.
Yukon won the first two matches of the night, but didn’t win again until the final match and North handed the Millers a 53-16 defeat at North.
The Millers had taken a 10-0 lead after the first two matches and were still in the dual after five matches trailing 16-10. North reeled off five straight falls to turn that into a 47-16 lead and put the contest out of reach.
“We were down 16-10 and those five falls in a row put it out of reach,” Miller head coach Joe Schneider said. “We just have a lot of work to do.
“We had some good bonus points, but we gave up way too many,” he said. “We seem to be more of a tournament than a dual team. We finished second at Fayetteville, fourth at Jenks, fifth at the Hancock and seventh in conference, but we struggle in dual meets.”
The Millers got a major decision over Garrett McBride, 13-5 at 106-pounds.
Cook used four takedowns in the first period to take an 8-3 lead. He used two more takedowns in the second period to seal the match.
Cooper Mahaffey’s pin of Connor McBride in 1:32 gave YHS a 10-0 lead. Edmond North won the next three matches by decision, major decision and forfeit to take a 13-10 lead and won 11 matches in a row to open a 53-10 lead.
Ashton Aldridge pinned Josh Vasquez in 1:36 for the Millers’ third win.
