Injuries taking a toll on CCS girls squad



North boys 2, Putnam City 1: OKLAHOMA CITY — Norman North boys coach Geo Claros finally saw more of what he was looking for in the second half Tuesday night at Putnam City Stadium. Only two goals found the net, from Kyle Johnson and Mauro Cichero, but the opportunities were there.

“And we’re catching about every bad break you can get,” Claros said, “and sooner or later that’s going to have to turn around.”

The Timberwolves outshot the Pirates, who scored on their only shot, 23 to 1. 

Norman High girls 10, Midwest City 0: MIDWEST CITY — The good times continue to roll for the NHS girls, who have won three straight games, all of them in District 6A-1.

Tuesday at Midwest City, the Tigers might have watched Gracie Koonce set a program record with seven points. The midfielder finished with four goals and three assists. 

Also scoring for NHS were Asha Haile, twice, Alexis Sanders, Maddie Bowman, Bailey Harris and Lexi Fowler.

The Tigers scored their last goal 5 minutes into the second half, ending the game.

Norman North girls 8, Putnam City 0: OKLAHOMA CITY — It was an easy night for coach Don Rother and the Timberwolves. Everybody got to play and many played more than one position.

“They had a good time,” Rother said of his players.

North picked up two goals from Francesca Ryan and single tallies from Sheridan Spelman, Haley Woodard, Bri Kuestersteffen, Lauren Morf and Lexi Carroll and Camille Greer.

Norman High boys 5, Midwest City 0: MIDWEST CITY — Midwest City’s soccer fortunes may be beginning to change. 

Said NHS coach Gordon Drummond said of the team the Bombers put on the field, “Midwest City had the biggest and fastest team that we’ve ever played against. They could really motor.”

The Bombers may not have soccer players yet, but they’ve got athletes on the pitch. Fortunately, skill won out for the Tigers, who got four goals from Theo Ostas and one from Matt Hockett.
