Lady Chicks stay unbeaten in district

CHICKASHA —

Few times are better to be flying high for the Chickasha girls than right now.

They maintained an unbeaten record in district on Tuesday with a 3-0 win over Cache, a score line that was in no way flattering for Chickasha as they dominated from start to finish for an overall impressive display. The win leaves them second in district (6-1-1, 3-0) ahead of a top-of-the-table clash with county neighbors Bridge Creek on Friday.

Chickasha scored their first goal early in the match with forward Katie Hinch attacking the goal keeper and scoring. It underlined the Lady Chicks' offensive aggressiveness, which was difficult for the Bulldogs to deal with from the beginning to the end.

The midfield play was strong for the Chicks with Taylor Lessig and the other midfielders making strong tackles and distributing the ball down the middle of the field to open attackers. The Chicks took advantage of this in the closing moments of the first half when Shorty Clift attacked the middle of the field with blinding pace and split two defenders to get an open look at the goal. A first-year player, Clift finished past the goalkeepers' left side to double Chickasha's advantage before the break.

The second period started off much off the same for the Lady Chicks, and they applied the dagger with just over nine minutes gone. Hinch looked as if she was going to go for the shot, but passed the ball to the wide open Haley Black after being cut off by a defender. After taking the pass from inside the penalty area, Black powered the ball past the keeper to put the Chicks up by three. 

Even after the three to nothing lead, Chickasha kept up the offensive attacks even late in the game. After bringing in a few fresh forwards on a late game substitution the Chicks continued their attack the same way they had been all game.
