Bears’ perfect season ends

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“I thought the game had changed again and it had,” Worden said. “The momentum had shifted, we were starting to attack,” Worden said. “Again, it’s nothing pretty... just grind it out, go get it and try to make something out of it.”

But it wasn’t enough. It was Carl Albert’s night to have the hero.

Just three minutes after Williamson’s equalizer Carl Albert won a corner. Essary delivered a cross to the back post and from the pinballing chaos Ruby Arani managed to get her head on the ball.

Down 2-1 with six minutes remaining, Noble battled for a chance, but it never came.

But next year could be just as bullish for the bears. Worden’s team is still young and only losing two starters, senior team captain Sydney David and Emma Gade.

“We brought a whole new tradition to Noble,” David said. “Noble is not known for their sports, but we are now. We’ve got to keep that up.”

“You made history tonight,” Worden told his team. “You set a standard that every team in Noble is going to try to beat or match. You set the bar high. We’re going to get another shot and try and get further next year.”
