NORMAN – After a full 80 minutes of regulation and two 10 minute overtime periods it came down to five penalty kicks a piece.

Norman North hosted Mustang last Friday night in the state quarter-finals. The Lady Broncos’ goalkeeper Brandi Hutchison came through in a huge way for Mustang. Hutchison, who splits time in goal with Abby Karbs, was able to deny Norman North two penalty kick. One of Norman North’s 12-yard shot sailed over the goal. Mustang’s Lexi Jones, Alina Magruder and Marilyn Kalin all were able to send their penalty kicks into the back of the net which led Mustang to the semis.

Hutchison’s second stop during penalty kicks was the final attempt for Norman North and kept Mustang’s season alive.

“I had to stop that one. This is it if I save this it was over. I just knew in my head I was ready to get this game over with,” Hutchison said, recalling her second stop in penalty kicks. “I knew everyone was depending on me.”

Karbs and Hutchison both logged playing time in the quarter-final match and both keepers were able to get a shutout win playing 100 minutes. Mustang’s defense also played nice defense in order to help MHS’ chances.

“Both goalies played great games,” Mustang coach Mike Mason said.

Mustang will host Bishop Kelley on Tuesday in the state semi-finals. Bishop Kelley is the top ranked team in Class 6A and has lost just one game all season. Bishop Kelley’s journey to the semi-finals started with a 8-1 win over Bixby and an a 2-1 victory over Union in the quarter-finals.

“I’m just very proud,” Mason said.
