Edmond North beat Deer Creek 7-1 in the first place game of the Edmond Tournament on Saturday.

Coach Rick Nordyke said it was one of the better games his team has played this season.

Yukon beat Newcastle 4-2 in the second place game, and Westmoore beat Owasso 10-2 in the third place game. Choctaw was awarded the win in the fourth place game as the result of a forfeit by Midwest City.

Nordyke hopes to keep the tournament going in the future.

"It was kind of like a little mini state tournament because six of the eight teams were in the state tournament last year," Nordyke said. "I thought it was a pretty strong tournament with some good match ups that could happen maybe in two weeks when the state tournament comes on."
