EDMOND, Oklahoma -- The Southmoore SaberCats beat the Edmond North Huskies 40-19 in the teams’ season openers.

The game, which was originally scheduled to be played Thursday, was postponed due to severe weather.

The Huskies took an early 13-0 lead in the first quarter, but Southmoore got on the board in the second. Junior running back Andrew Long got a handoff, which he ran in for a 10-yard touchdown. Edmond North missed the extra point, making the score 13-6.

On the Sabercats next drive, Kendall Thompson found Caleb Willis, who scored for Southmoore. The 39-yard touchdown put the SaberCats up 13-12.

Southmoore again scored to put them ahead 20-13. Edmond North’s Troy Davis answered back by punching it in on fourth to put the Huskies within one point of the SaberCats at halftime.

Long made a long, 80-yard run to score. The running back was a huge contributor to the SaberCats’ win over the Huskies, posting three touchdowns and more than 300 yards on the ground. He had four runs of 50 yards or more to lead the explosive Southmoore offense.

The SaberCats will face Westmoore next week, while the Huskies will play Choctaw.
