Underdogs at the state tournament a year ago, No. 2 seed North Woods wore the favorite tag well, dismantling Heritage Christian Academy 74-36 in the Class 1A quarterfinals Thursday at Williams Arena.

The Grizzlies (30-1) of Cook ran to a double-digit lead with 9:30 to go in the first half and denied the Eagles any chance to get closer. TJ Guggenberger and Tate Olson made three-pointers and Cade Goggleye drained a pair from deep to build the 16-5 advantage.

“[Assistant] Coach [Jerry] Chiabotti told me to just keep shooting and it paid off,” said Goggleye, whose buzzer-beater from beyond half court to win last year’s quarterfinal game was aired on ESPN.
